OctaneRender (CUDA) can be used as NVIDIA-BENCH!

for about 6 months barefeat uses (beside LUXMARK OpenCL) OctaneRender , which is CUDA(Nvidia) only as benchmark.

You need:

1. CUDA drivers (works also on 10.9 DP6 for me!) installed (no restart needed :) )



2. The Octane Renderer Demo (works for me also with 10.9)

http://render.otoy.com/downloads.php  (Mac Version)


3. Octane Demo scene files



To compare to barefeats results (lots since 6 Months on his site) http://www.barefeats.com/gpu680v7.html

use the demoscene  RenderTarget PT


My GT 440 needs 15:52 Min:Sec for that scene.

GTX 680 (barefeat) needs only 3:09 !!!

Low End CUDA gpus may not work (not enough gpu features) like NVidia 8/9xxxx or GT 2xx.

CPU doesnt matter much (low cpu load).



GTX Titan (oc'ed @1132 Mhz): 1:17 minutes !!

GTX 780 1:22 / 1:29 (SC) / 1:40 Min

GTX 580 OC : 2:35 min 

GTX 680 PHANTOM 4GB 2:53

GTX 680 (barefeat) 3:09 min

GTX 560 ti 4:05 Min

GTX 550 ti 7:56 min

GT 640 1Gb DDR-3 - 13:05 min.

GT 440 : 16 Min

GT 430 : 21 Min


PS: Octane cuda renderer renders gpu only. So you cant compare cpu vs gpu.

To see what gpus can do, i run luxmark sala scene GT 440 vs CPU C2D. Even midrange GT 440 only is 20 times faster in that OpenCL raytraycing bench as C2D only. So also Octane CUDA (which didn't have an cpu only feature) will benefit in same range of the gpu speed.



If Octane crashes on start CUDA is missed!

Open Demoscene and render the RenderTarget PT part.

Be patient ;)

      I need to add wifi bcm4360 original apple to dsdt to be  en0 all the time 
      also to add it to pci list.
      and I change from gtx970 to AMD radeon pro rx580 and I have issue with vtencoderxpcservice that make my cpu 300% and high temperature . with Nvidia it doesn't happen.
      I search the internet days and night and try to fix this issue no luck.
