My render and bake have recently started going by excruciatingly slow. My CPU is only at around 40%, and my GPU is sitting around 10 or 20%. I've been rendering a rather simple scene for almost 12 hours, much higher than previous simple scenes.
I'm using the Cycles Render - I have it set to prioritize my GPU, and I've raised blender's priority in task manager - all to no avail.
Anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing this?
