Thread: New Nvidia Titan has 32 GB of VRAM.

  1. #1

    New Nvidia Titan has 32 GB of VRAM.

    https://techreport.com/news/33835/nv...eural-networks

    The Titan V CEO Edition was announced, obviously, by the CEO.

    It's a VERY limited edition for now, but it's still interesting that we've gotten there.

    That's good news. Obviously a pricey card, but one PC running a card like that with the upcoming free version of Octane.....maybe it could pump out character animation rapidly at, say, 720p.... I'm currently reading the Albee book about Kaze, and compared to the machine he had, the mind boggles....

    between 3k to 9k. I think it will be better to buy a few threadripper machines.

    That would probably need some serious power also.......

    The license model is changing with Octane 4 - scroll down on link under Licenses.
    "New licensing structure will be available soon, including a free tier".

    I heard this is for one user up to 2 GPUs, even for commercial work, and will also have free access to around half of the software interface plugins. If that is true, my own personal hunch is that LW will be one of those.

    its not quite understood, you actually only get the standalone version free, and then you pay for the plugin, but with the free version only half the plugins work, so if the lw plugin dosnt work with the free version, it wont be free

    @ rustythe1, quite true, thanks for clarifying since my hunches do not constitute fact.

    Now AMD have announced a 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper CPU with 32 cores/64 threads, could anyone open up the comment earlier about a few threadripper machines being preferable up to the same budget as this GPU. Would the speed be comparable ?

    you see that is the good question, and as far as I can see its where it gets a little grey, just try searching for comparison videos, its almost like they don't want you to know the truth, anyone who seems to show "octane is fast" only seems to have something like a 4xTitan card rig, and even then I see people taking over an hour to render internal viz images, so again like above you could afford a whole farm of threadrippers (over £2000 for a titan in the uk, only £900 for a threadripper), and I would hazard a guess it would be a lot faster, and the hardware would last longer as the cooling options would be a lot cheaper and effective,

    rough estimation >

    GPU is about twice as fast.
    GPU use about twice the energy
    GPU, you can have 2-3 cards in one PC
    GPU, easy to replace and sell

    regarding Octane, i think the additional render licenses are *expensive ($400) ...at the moment ...*relative

    5 additional cards, it will cost you $2000 in licenses

    also the Octane ai denoiser is nice, but not that much nicer than a temporal video denoiser,
    you will get that "interpolated animation look" with splotches, though quite minimal.
    the result is quite alright, but a little less magic perhaps than some say

    for movies / cartoons, CPU still is valueable.

    if you have the cash, Octane, or a free GPU render engine, it is certainly worth it.


    for very realistic animations, i'd say go for a GPU engine.
    for interior > Kray.

    Threadripper is cool, but still costs quite some cash compared to GPU

    expensive CPU + expensive motherboard

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Ryzen 1700 looks to be the best versus price.

    cheap CPU + cheap motherboard

    ----------------------------------------------------

    based on render power,
    Threadripper costs 30% more than it is worth
    + the motherboard is 250% more expensive

    is it worth it...? meeh... maybe...

    Have I missed the news......
    I thought Octane ONLY worked with a CUDA GPU?

    several here talking GPU/Octane vs CPU/Threadripper
    advantage / disadvantage
