KeystoneMike

LW Oldtimer
Intel i7-6900K, 64GB (8core/16thread)

Non volumetric: 26m 17s
Volumetrics: 1h 32m 11s

I really really want the 3970X now!

There are some issues with my benchmark test so don't assume any accuracy. I've unintentionally tarnished the reputation of 3950X. :)

The CPU shows 3.89 GHz as reported during rendering. However, it can be turned up to 4.7. I also just noticed that the mfg shipped me slower RAM than what I ordered. This is on 2400 MHz RAM.

Also I think if we are adding specs to the boxes we used to render these, we should also add how much was spent on the boxes. :)
Mine was $1100 USD.

Fair enough. My Dell Precision 7810 cost me £420 GBP back in early March. I upgraded the graphics card to an RTX 2080 later in the month for an additional £450 GBP, the rest of the spec is unchanged. :)

LW_B747_Bench.lws render time: 32m34s

i7 [email protected], 48gb ram. GTX 1080 8GB

Slooooowwww. Not surprising for a 12 year old system! I am planning to update soon: either a 3950 or 3960.

I did not bother rendering the volumetric version.

Because I was bored this afternoon (and frustrated at these slow render times) I converted this scene for rendering in eCycles for fun.

50 seconds for a comparable result. Much better.

Someone ought to render this scene in Octane in Lightwave as well. I do wonder why Layout gobbles up gigabytes of memory to render, while eCycles peaks at around 800mb. The scene data and textures are identical. Ah well, apples and pears, and such.

Still interesting to see how much faster GPU rendering can be - and a way to keep an old machine somewhat relevant for rendering.

I intend to get a 3000 Nvidia series card later this year or early next year after I purchase my new comp, which should get that render time down to 10 seconds or less in the RTX version of eCycles.


Good times ahead!

Nice results guys, waiting for 3990X TR4 to smash us all at aroudn 3 minutes mark :).

Oh, fine. I thought so, Lewis.

Maybe someone with such a machine can spare a minute to hit F9. It will probably take them more time to download and post the results than to actually render the scenes.

Didn't our fellow Lightwaver cageman had one of those monsters at hand? Let's see if he hops in.

4.7 GHz is the highest speed in a single core load. On all cores, it could be around 4.2 with good cooling. The problem on your part is probably the low memory frequency. My machine with a Dark Rock cooler and two fans in push/pull mode usually runs around 3.96 GHz on all cores.

thats why using rainmeter / HWinfo is good as it can show you each individual core and details of each, makes a big widget for mine so you would probably need a whole screen for 64 threads! but some of the widgets out there are quite compact with a lot of info.
