First render test on new laptop

First render test on new laptop

Postby Bryan K » Wed Sep 21, 2022 12:39 am

Finally got a new laptop. Here is the result of my first render test. 15 minutes. 400 passes. The brass lattice on the wall would have caused my old laptop to have taken 4-8 hours at best.

Not a perfect render. Just a test. Model from the Warehouse. No mods or fixes.

Almost no aliasing. Wow.

A 16x to 32x speed boost is some leap. :thumb:

Its a good time to move to 20xx or 30xx nVidia GPUs with the 40xx announcement.

Looking forward to seeing that Nadesico Cruiser getting some path tracing love!

Thanks everyone! :thumb:

I will be putting it into production by this weekend. I'm waiting on a new dock and then adding all the plug-ins I use, back to SU. My old dock only works on the old laptop. It's an old click mount dock.

New dock has the USB C that I need.

1000 samples (passes) in 24 minutes. My... my head hurts. :lol:

I put a little more effort into this render and changed the lighting settings, which made it run even faster.

Thanks tuna! :thumb:

Again, these are just renders. I see problems with both, but this is just to get an idea of what the new PC can do.

Thanks Mike! :thumb:

Just got it set up with the new dock and it is now my desk production PC. The old one s going to the bedroom for late night YouTube.

Still need to load all the plug-ins back to SU and do some other tweaking, but the hard parts are done.
