    so i updated my pc with SLI 1080 gtx cards 64gb dd4 ram and a nice phat 8core i6900k. sounds nice! well until you find out that the pascal cards are not supported by iray… yeeey for early adoption of new cards.. anyways just a heads up if you plan on upgrading your pc and you intend to render with octane/iray you can only CPU render for now. until the SDK of iray is released and drivers and programs are updated to support pascal type cards. guess ill go back to my old titan for a while.

      Yay for the new PC. It must really frustrating to finally get a new PC and discover you can’t render the way you want.

        ye i was pretty pissed about my own stupidity ^ cuz i should/could have known if i had checked the daz forums.. but oh well guess ill take a break from fun-
        rendering for a while and only make what i absolutely need ^

      Cuda TK 8 was just released, so I don’t think it will take much longer. The new Pascal based Quadros and the new Titan X are going to be available soon. So I think all the plugins and hopefully also Daz3D will get the upgrade soon.

      Hi there

      That’s sad truth,I remember same has been with Octane,but Octane devs sorted this by releasing or combining CUDA 7.5 with 8.0 RC SDK and now “Pascal” cards are supported by Octane v3,speeds is still not as many think off,but at least is usable

      Regarding the IRAY,DS I think will get update soon as I think private beta testers doing now beta test and looks OK,no issues,although not sure what speed increase you would get

      Other render engines,Poser Pro 11 supports “Pascal” as right now I’m running GTX 1080 and Titan X and I can render through the SuperFly with GPU

      Speed is still slower,but I think is down to the older kernel which needs to be updated

      But still you can use yours cards in Reality with DS and OpenCL,yours cards should do nice job there

      Hope this helps

      Out is now new DS 4.9 Beta which supports “Pascal” but not expect faster speeds than older generation,tested today and Titan X has been faster by around 1 minute and 40 seconds,I think they still didn’t sorted CUDA as they should due this older Titan X is faster

      Hope this helps

        thanks, i had it installed since release. but it is quicker than just bruteforcing iray with cpu only ^..^ well the 2x 1080 gtx renders quicker a lot faster compared to my 2 980’s so i am a happy camper. but i agree they could optimize it more.
