    I've undervolted my 3090 slightly since my cooling situation is suboptimal and I actually get higher boost clocks by lowering the voltage since it results in less heat. Power draw is about 320W while rendering.

    Good to know! What undervolt did you use? 

  • Question for those of you who are versed in running this benchmark with multiple cards available--if I am able to upgrade my GTX Titan X (Pascal) 12GB card to a 3090 in the next few months (my Titan gets an iteration rate around 4 iterations/sec with the benchmark which is in between a 1080Ti and Titan Xp on this list), would it make sense to keep my Titan X in my #4 PCIe slot and set it to TCC mode and run renders with both the 3090 and Titan X available for scenes requiring less than 12 GB VRAM, or would the benefits be too low due to the fact that the 3090 is 3.5x faster than the Titan?  It looks like the 3090 gets 13-14 iterations/sec on this benchmark depending on the vendor, so I was wondering if I would see around a 10% boost from having both cards available (back of the envelope estimate on my part)?  I did see somewhere a post of a 3090 + 2080Ti + a threadripper CPU at 25 iterations/sec, but can't find the thread to double check.

    Maybe someone could run a test with 3090 + 1080Ti if they have both cards available and post?

    I ran this test a couple of days ago while testing my 3090; did one along with my 1080Ti. However! The 1080Ti is currently on a X1 PCIe riser, and even by itself seems to be getting a bit lower hashrates than I might have expected, perhaps due to this. This is a temporary solution until I get a Zen3/my X570 board comes in. Also, I don't know anything about TCC mode, or how this might be useful. Of note, going by a performance/watt, adding the pascal card isn't worth it. My total system power usage at the wall is around 610 Watts with both rendering iray.

    Thank you very much for this information--it looks about what I was thinking (13-14 iterations/sec from the 3090 and about 3 iterations/sec from the 1080Ti).  This is about a 15-20% improvement from the 3090 alone, but at the cost of pulling an additional 200W or so on the power supply.  FYI--TCC mode is an option for Titan class cards (it stands for Tesla Compute Compatible) which allows you to run an alternate driver which disables the display ports on the card, making the full VRAM available for use by IRAY.  For my Titan X, using the standard WDDM driver Windows reserves around 900 MB of VRAM for the system to use, leaving 11.1 GB available for IRAY renders.  TCC allows to use the full 12 GB, but at the cost of not being able to use the card for monitor display (therfore it is only useful as a secondary card in a system if you don't have a graphics adapter built in to your CPU).

    No problem; maybe someone else can use their 1080ti to see if mine is being significantly impaired due to the slower pcie bus. I'll certainly revisit this once I have my new setup in a fewish weeks. Thanks for the info regarding TCC; I did notice that the 1080Ti only has 100MB reserved per Task Manager, apparently, and perhaps just a bit more per Hwinfo. I have attached some screenshots; perhaps it will serve as a nice bonus to negate the need to have TCC while running older non Titan cards. Unfortunately, having 24GB at one's disposal means that you get greedy quickly, quickly blowing past the almost 11GB limit anyway..

    Can someone with two cards (one of them being 3090), test something?

    Since you cannot switch 3090 to TCC mode maybe changing this Windows setting in Advanced Display Settings would improve performance and allow using all VRAM on 3090?

    I would test myself but I don't have a second card or a free slot at the moment.

    I had already made this benchmark with the same GPU, but with different hardware, in December 2019. Let's see if drivers/Daz Studio/Windows 10 improved anything.
    I've tested my GPU, my CPU and my GPU+CPU, both in the stable and the public build. I haven't repeated the CPU one for the stable build because it would have taken an eternity.

    CONCLUSIONS

    In December 2019 I had a slightly worse motherboard, RAM and Asset Drive, with older Daz/Windows/drivers.
    The results I had were 3.75 for the Stable build, and 3.71 for the Beta.

    It's strange to see that the Stable build performance dropped a lot: from 3.75 to 3.57 (-4.8%).
    On the other hand, the Beta performance increased significantly: from 3.71 to 3.80 (+2.4%).
    Even stranger is that the current Beta is much faster than the current Stable build, for me: 3.57 vs 3.80 (+6.4%).

  • What about the RTX 3070? Its not in the Nvidia GPU Benchmark Results list (3.1).

    Not released  until10/29/2020.  The scuttlebut is that Nvidia is holding off on releasing the 3070 until after the Big NAVI launch because if Big NAVI is going to actually be as big as people are saying it will be then Nvidia can drop the RTX 3070 card price to be competitive.

    Good to know! What undervolt did you use? 

    I'm currently undervolting to 0.887mV, down from 1.075mV on default. I just realized that my undervolting probably wasn't applied when I posed my benchmark. When I reran it now with the benchmark it's running at 250W peak when undervolted, a good 50-55W under the default. The performance difference is negligible, so definitely worthwhile if noise/heat are a concern.

    This is reasonably faster than the first bench, and I tried to keep everything else (background processes etc) equal. Interestingly, the driver studio release notes specifically mention Daz 3d, and talk about support for 3000 series GPU coming "later this month", which is great for general release users.

    I am getting a second 3090 next week and look forward to taking it for a spin.

    May I ask where you are getting your second 3090 from--I'm still trying to find somewhere that isn't out of stock for my first 3090 (and I refuse to buy from scalpers)?

    Yeah, no problem.

    I live in Australia and supply here has been pretty dire. Luckily, I found a small retailer who managed to get hold of a reasonable number of cards from the less popular brands. The first card I bought is Inno3d, the second is a Colorful.

    It seems that even those who are aware of this smaller retailer would rather wait for Asus, Gigabyte, MSI etc than accept a less popular brand.

    I, too, would never buy from a scalper.

    Good on you for that--I am interested to see what a benchmark with 2x 3090 would look like at this stage.  I am personally looking for a 3090 with 3 8-pin power connectors since I will only be able to fit one card in my current system and I have read some technical concerns about the cards with only 2 8-pin connectors being able to handle max power draws without having stability issues (unless the user undervolts the card to counteract this).  I have some projects I am working on that have very large scenes (up to 32 G3/G8 characters) that I currently have to render using composites on my Titan X GPU and I am really hoping that the 3090 with 24 GB of VRAM will greatly speed up my workflow.

    For what it's worth, the Inno3d I have is a reference board with 2x 8-pin power connectors, and I have had absolutely no stability issues whatsoever during stress tests, rendering or extended gaming. I haven't undervolted mine. From what I gather, the early concerns around stability (and the various theories as to the causes) were resolved with the first driver update after release.

    Iray is actually less demanding than many video games. If you run video games with uncapped frame rates, you will easily use more power and heat. Iray does not function the same way, because of how Iray does not constantly swap data in and out of VRAM like a game would. The scene loads once, and that is it, even with Nvlink.

    Thus I think most dual 8 pin 3090s will be perfectly fine for Iray. They might be just a few seconds slower, but that would only be because of clock speeds. And as one user has shown, they actually undervolted their 3090 and got better performance. So I am not so sure that 3x8 pins is going to be all that great.

    I'd also like to see if Nvlink works on the 3090 properly for Iray, how much VRAM does Iray's log report being available.

    I'm pretty happy with those results! The addition of the Threadripper reduced total rendering time by 1 second, so I didn't bother with the calculations as it clearly isn't worth it.

    Have you tried an extended render test, to see how toasty they get?

    I did a 1500 frame animation render that took 7 hours with the 3090 and 2080 Ti. The room was pretty warm in the morning but the card temps were fine. The coolers are pretty beefy and my case is completely open (Thermaltake Core P7).

    Too bad there's no 3070 stats here, with it being on the 104 die and all. While the VRAM would make them most likely a poorish choice for iray, it would be interesting. Could be a value king as long you use plenty of scene optimization.

    It looks like using the CPU with a pair of 3090's actually increases render time.  The 3090 cards I used were the EVGA GTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra cards.  https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=24G-P5-3987-KR

    They have a higher base and boost clock than the Nvidia founder's edition cards and a power limit of 420 per card watts with the stock BIOS.  Both cards hit 2000+ MHz during the render.

    If you use PX1 or MSI Afterburner, you can increase the stock power limit to 450 watts per card.  EVGA also has a BIOS for the cards which can increase the power limit to 500 watts per card.  I may be able to get the render time for this benchmark under 1 minute if I use the 500 watt BIOS and the software to raise the power limit to 500 watts.  I actually hit the card's 420 watt power limit during the render.

    Yes - it's a known side-effect of the way Iray manages splitting up a single rendering workload between multiple CPUs/GPUs in the same computer system. A highly technical explanation of it can be found here (see section 3.2.2: "Batch Rendering" starting on page 23.)

    The gist of it is that if your CPU's raw rendering performance is less than half that of one or more of the GPUs in your system, enabling it plus one or more of those GPUs for rendering will result in overall slower rendering since the Iray work scheduler will periodically skip the CPUs contributions to the final render (due to them taking too long to accumulate) and re-assign those contributions to be completed over again by one of the faster GPUs.

    If you use PX1 or MSI Afterburner, you can increase the stock power limit to 450 watts per card.  EVGA also has a BIOS for the cards which can increase the power limit to 500 watts per card.  I may be able to get the render time for this benchmark under 1 minute if I use the 500 watt BIOS and the software to raise the power limit to 500 watts.  I actually hit the card's 420 watt power limit during the render.

    Are you going to pick up a Nvlink for these?
