      Btw vray released ( a while ago) gpu + CPU rendering and it works fine. 

  2. Decided to replace 90% of my lights in my 3ds Max project I'm working on with several Über powerful LED lamps, and now, let there be light!


    Image will be shown once render is complete 😁

  3. True, true. BIOS updates may have expanded compatibility with more RAM kits.
  4. I still remember when my mom used to use Mozilla Firefox. Now I'm going to try it out, the latest version at that ^_^

  5. Then chances are the board won't be able to handle the rated speed at the rated CAS latency and voltage, or worse, the system will refuse to boot.
  6. After doing some research on how 3ds Max handles GPU memory, it seems to really chew through it really fast when the scene gets big and complicated (lights, objects (including smoothed meshes), et al).


    Another thing to take into consideration too is the fact that almost every texture map present in AMD Radeon ProRender (so things like wood, stone, and car paints) are 2K square for best results (since 4K doesn't make much of a difference unless the shots are up close).


    Fact is, no two renderers are the same. Each one has their own set of algorithms, libraries, and much more. Since AMD Radeon ProRender is a physically-based renderer, it's likely that, combined with how 3ds Max handles GPU rendering (with supported renderers), is where I'm seeing such high VRAM usage, and I'm not at the point where I have smoothed out objects, but I have lots of light-emitting materials in the scene.


    Another thing I discovered just now is the Anti-aliasing. Even setting it to a value of 2 causes the VRAM usage to go up over 2 times 🤔.

      Fun fact, AMD Radeon ProRender (successor to FireRender) runs on OpenCL. As long as your hardware (doesn't master which set or combination, even though Radeon GPUs run this better) can run OpenCL 1.2 or later, you're good to go.


      And it's free to use 👌

    3. Ethocreeper


      Yea I noticed that on the website

    4. Ethocreeper


      I like that amd does free or open source

      Freesync - cheaper and open source

      Oc unlocked


  7. A project I'm working on in 3ds Max can use up just over 8GB of my video memory of my GeForce GTX 1080 Ti when rendered at UHD 4K 😖😖😖


    Until I start managing all of the materials and maps, I have to be especially careful with regards to using a lot of materials.


    As for the renderer I'm using, it's the beta version of AMD Radeon ProRender for 3ds Max 2018, which is my main renderer of choice since I've been using it in Blender.

    1. Ethocreeper


      Unfortunately in vray gpu rendering is not that good...

    2. JurunceNK


      I know, like I said, until I manage all of my texture maps and materials, it'll consume that much VRAM at 4K.


      I'm well aware of that.

  8. Titan XP Collector's Edition

    That's true, and so are the GTX 1080 Ti's. Though the GTX 1080 Ti in gaming is less powerful on paper, they're only about 3-5% on average behind the TITAN Xp. That being said, the TITAN Xp can be used for gaming since it uses the same GeForce drivers, and the same versions as well, they're really meant to be used primarily as workstation alternatives to Quadros for those (like me) who are maximizing their bang for the buck on compute power and don't really need (or can't leverage the drivers) a Quadro for their workflow, even if their employer would be able to afford it and write it off as a business expense (which is tax deductible).
  9. Hi guys. In blender, I'm trying to create a custom texture map for a sword I'm modeling, and I want to use a wire-wrapped handle. What I want to make is this: However, I've tried various methods (screw modifier namely), but whenever I want to stretch the circle to create the twisting distance matching the images, they deform into an oval shape. I googled tutorials, but they don't go over this particular approach or style; they're all leather-based or just a cylinder wrapped around an object (which aren't what I'm after anyways). Anyone have better ideas I can try?

  11. LEAK NEW nvidia TITAN X volta

    You mean this lineup?
  12. LEAK NEW nvidia TITAN X volta

    I want to not believe it. As of posting, I'm checking the GeForce website.
  13. Agreed. Even if the servers are limited to the "vanilla" experience, it's not going to be the purist kind of experience. Instead Blizzard would want to do the things they could have done 13 years ago when World of Warcraft first premiered since now game design (minus the nerfing on difficulty) is so much better now than it was back then.
  14. There's two sides to this. One is, yeah, it was a total mess, and it could have been refined. On the other hand, they could have kept the difficulty, but make it very rewarding once you overcome that very difficult challenge. WoW as it is, is way too easy IMO. It's exactly why I got bored so fast and just quit playing it because you get plentiful rewards for not even trying. ^^ If they can give the option of using the newer models, it'll be dope af!
