    Visualize Boost switch off CPU utilisation

    Helge Feddersen

      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!
