V-Ray | CPU or GPU - Which one can render FASTER?

New Video: Jonas Noell's In-Depth Comparison of CPU vs. GPU Rendering in V-Ray for 3ds Max

Join Jonas Noell in his latest video as he delves into an insightful comparison of render speeds between CPU and GPU systems using V-Ray for 3ds Max. V-Ray is unique in that it offers two distinct rendering engines, facilitating straightforward comparisons. The software's ability to utilize all resources efficiently and support almost all features makes the transition from CPU to GPU rendering as simple as the click of a button.

In this engaging video, Jonas will demonstrate the rendering of the same scene using two different setups - one powered by a CPU and the other by a GPU. To ensure a fair comparison, he chose two powerful contenders:
  • CPU Option: AMD Threadripper 3990x, boasting 64 Cores at 2.9 GHz.
  • GPU Option: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, equipped with 16,384 CUDA Cores.

The video will showcase techniques to ensure both engines tackle identical tasks. Upon completion, Jonas will analyze the results, comparing the performance of each setup in this specific scenario. Tune in to discover which system emerges as the more efficient renderer in this test.
