best rtx card for multi gpu setup

You can load bigger scenes but they won't load faster

 

The 2080 ti has many more cuda cores, so if you care about raw performance more than anything else, the 2080 TI is better, but the advantages of the quadro are the error correcting memory and nvlink, along with the sync cable, for massive multi GPU solutions. You also get those nice certified studio drivers for improved stability, but sometimes they are not needed.

I am looking to get an rtx 2080 ti card for my rendering/animation pc. I currently have a gigabyte 1080ti turbo blower style card which i want to keep as well (I use octane render primarily which supports mismatched gpus) and I am wondering which rtx card would pair best as far as cooling goes. I have seen that the dual fan fe 2080 tis have cooling issues in multi gpu setups and that three fan gaming cards are not great either for multi gpu since they exhaust heat into the case. So I am wondering what card/setup would be best. My case is an nzxt h700 so there is plenty of space and case fans for air circulation.

pretty much any 2080 ti would work if you have good enough air circulation

Any general recommendations on the best 2080 ti to get? I am currently looking at the gigabyte aorus extreme and the MSI Gaming  x trio

Make sure you quote us so that we can see your responses

 

Those are both very high-end models, you would be disappointed by neither


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I just noticed that the rtx quadro 5000 is under $2k now. How would that compare to the 2080 ti? as far as rendering, more vram i assume would mean scenes load in faster but I haven't seen much about the quality of the card itself. I did read one article that said the quadro chipset is more in line with the 2080 instead of the ti. I am an architecture student so the computer will primarily be used for modelling, rendering, and animating (possibly some light ai work in the future). I have used computers with 2080 ti before and they're great, but i have had no experience with the quadro cards.
