Hi..
I'm planning to upgrade my old VGA (gtx 970) to 1080ti(used) or RTX 2070(new)

is there any special feature in thea for RTX?

If we look from the cuda cores, 1080ti is bigger than 2070, seems 1080ti will be faster for rendering isn't?

But if we take a look from the otherside, 2070(new) is more expenssive than 1080ti(used).

What do you think guys? Any advise for me?

Not at the moment, only the cuda cores are used by Thea.

According to the benchmark page, the 2070 is a bit faster than the 1080ti. If you render big scenes where 8 GB aren't enough and you can get the 1080ti for less, then go for the 1080ti !

I think we have to chase the new technologies at a high price, the world of 3D graphics is this :(

Just in case you are still using v1.5 as well as 2.2 (for access to the good ‘ol Thea Studio for example), I believe the 1.5 engine will not use an RTX GPU, so you will be rendering on CPU only in v1.5.

Denoise functionality with Optix uses the RTX Tensor cores since its an AI workload. More RTX Tensor cores enable faster denoise during rendering.
