    Manual overclocking is fun, but not something worth the result (at least with the parts I have).

  6. Any recommendation about vram for GPU rendering ?

    Searching the net regarding vram and GPU rendering.

    Info is always the same:
    "it's for storing textures, geometry, ... in the GPU"
    But no real life figures.

    Do you have recommendations about...

    Cool, either your scene is setup significantly different than mine, or it has to do with light falloff (see bottom of the image). Maybe we are meaning the same but talking about different scenes?

    Thanks for the explanation. But I am aware of the in = out angle rule.

    Furthermore:



    That's either not accurate or meant differently: In general lights (since LW 2018) do reflect.
