Visualize Boost switch off CPU utilisation

Question asked by Helge Feddersen on Jan 5, 2018

Hi All,

as i have been using Boost for quite a while i only now noticed that Boost is also pushing the CPU to 100% when doing renders.

As i have 2 1080Ti installed in the system the benifit is but a 1 second improvement vs doing a GPU only render of the same image

 

Camaro, at 1000 passes, 1920x1080

2 x 1080Ti: 81Sec local render GPU only

2 x 1080Ti + CPU: 80Sec via Boost

Power Boost also pushes the CPU to 100%

 

the donwside to this: the Wattage used is 500Watts vs 680Watts

Is it possible to switch off the CPU for rendering?

PS hope you all have a great new year!
