“With NVIDIA RTX, core ray-tracing operations are now hardware accelerated by the GPU, making this the fastest version of Cycles yet.” - Brecht Van Lommel said. Cycles core computing method is ray trace. And if this thing is supported by GPU hardware directly, then it will be fast to compute ray trace part. So, RT core number will benefit Cycles most in ...

By the looks of the lspci you're using the non pro AMD driver which is required for OpenCL at the moment. The pro driver is available going to AMDs website and searching for drivers for your card. There is a download link for Ubuntu but the latest version they support is Ubuntu 18.04 (x86_64). You might also find you have to use a slightly older kernel ...

By coincidence, today I did a render using Blender 2.8 on a laptop with a Quadro M1000M card. No issues there, worked fine! Quadro cards seem to be made for rendering and GFX design, so a good choice. A good read: https://www.engineering.com/DesignSoftware/DesignSoftwareArticles/ArticleID/18630/Whats-the-Difference-Between-GeForce-and-Quadro-Graphics-Cards....

The more, the better in most cases, but you do need to be aware of single thread performance as well. If you get a processor with lots of cores that has very poor single thread performance and use it for work, you might struggle with some operations that cannot use all of the cores. Generally physics simulations tend to use multiple cores a bit less ...

It is same like sugar.. more you will add more sweeten you will get. if you are using windows 64bit, then your windows can support upto 256, so blender can't lead this, but it doesn't matter at all, but more threads do matter. When you render anything in cycles, those boxes are actually thread. So If you have a multi processor system(where windows can ...

The following answer is based on a Twitter thread by Stefan Werner. Volumetric rendering on the CPU can be less noisy with fewer samples, because Cycles uses equi-angular sampling. This importance sampling technique by C. Kulla and M. Fajardo is currently not implemented for GPU rendering. The slides from the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2012 may ...

Unlike 3dview, NodeView does not have: matrix = context.region_data.perspective_matrix so in the callback one option is to use gpu.matrix.get_projection_matrix(), it looks something like: def advanced_grid_xy(context, args): geom, config = args coords, indices = geom.coords, geom.indices matrix = gpu.matrix.get_projection_matrix() shader ...

The following script allows you to enable all GPUs and optionally all CPUs as well. import bpy def enable_gpus(device_type, use_cpus=False): preferences = bpy.context.preferences cycles_preferences = preferences.addons["cycles"].preferences cuda_devices, opencl_devices = cycles_preferences.get_devices() if device_type == "CUDA": ...

You need to allow Blender to use your graphics card. Go to Edit->Preferences->System and select the card you want to use. If there’s nothing there, you don’t have a compatible graphics card. No worries, CPU rendering works too. Happy Blendering.

You can increase viewport speed in multiple ways. 1) Make sure you have GPU Compute on (in preferences and in render tab) 2) Adjust viewport resolution in Render Tab -> Performance -> Viewport -> Pixel size 3) Decrease Render samples in Render Tab -> Sampling -> Viewport 4) Remember that Cycles will always be considerably slower than Evee.
