I’d love to see a decent Iray render speed comparison between the current NVIDIA graphics Cards, specifically for DAZ Studio performance. All we need is some data from a static test scene, render it on a variety of systems and compare the results.
Well here’s such a scene! Please download it and render it on your system, then leave a comment below with your GPU configuration and how long it took for the scene to finish.
To take a time reading, head over to Help – Troubleshooting – View Log File. Scroll to the end of that file and you’ll see a line that reads something like this:
Total Rendering Time: 17 minutes 20.70 seconds
To submit your results, I’ve made
this handy Google Form (now closed) that will add your entries to a big spreadsheet. You can use it multiple times too, which will come in handy if you have more than one GPU. You can submit a result for each single GPU and for all GPUs combined. You can even add one pass with your CPU enabled, and if you’re game, try with OptiX on and off. You’ll be surprised about the differences it can make.
You’re more than welcome to elaborate on your results in the comments below. I’ve migrated all submissions into the sheet for easy evaluation, and I’ll compile a list of the results with a snazzy graph in an upcoming post.
Thank you for your participation in this project that started in 2019! Since then we’ve had various updates to both Daz Studio and the Iray render engine under the hood, and have closed the submission form. I have collated most of the submitted results, and you can read up on them in this article.
