iMac Pro (2017) for rendering with Cinema 4D + Octane
I did my homework but I can not find a definite answer to my question and I was hoping to find it here.
First things first: I own a iMac Pro with a Vega 64 and use it for professional applications mainly (C4D+Octane, AE, etc.). But I'd like it to have a little more horse power when it comes to GPU rendering. I do not plan on using a second screen.
I thought about buying a 5700 XT + Razer
Chroma Core but I wasn't able to find an answer to the question if I would be able to utilize the full power of both cards at the same time in Octane X. If so, would the render speed go up notably?
Does anyone have experiences with this setting?
thanks for your answer. Regarding crashes: It got a lot better since Big Sur for me. It mostly happens in the node editor with baked texture nodes.
So it is not possible to use two cards at the same time in Octane X right now?
Multiple cards are supported. If you can get work done with the C4D plug-in, than adding a second card is worth it.
The Maya plug-in isn’t near ready for any work projects yet.
