Many months later, OTOY has delivered that free (for now) product they promised.

Octane X app

You don't need to have purchased a 2019 Mac Pro to sign up for a free Prime Tier (single GPU) subscription. 👍🏻

 

I rendered the Interior demo scene on a 2018 Mac Mini and RX 5500 XT eGPU.

Octane X Demo Scene 2160P UHD

Film Settings: Image Resolution: 3840 x 2160 UHD

Quality: Max Samples: 256

Render Time: 1 min. 41 seconds

Good times. 😎

The Octane X beta (a free download on the Mac App Store) has been updated to version 10 

Overall, rendered image quality is pretty good at 2160p UHD resolution using 256 samples for the Interior demo scene. As is visible when looking closely at the image in the original post above, these settings produce some minor fireflies in a few shadowed areas (at the floor and TV frame). 

Render Time: 1 min 53 seconds

AMD RX 5500 XT GPU Load: 90%

Intel i5 8500B CPU Load: 4% 

 

As I prefer to use a denoiser on progress renders whenever possible, it's good to see OTOY has Octane X's (CPU) denoiser working in this Beta release. 

Below is a nicer rendered image of the Interior demo scene. Using the denoiser cleaned up all the fireflies while adding only a couple minutes of rendering time.

Render Time: 3 min 42 seconds with AI denoising added

Good times.
