we are a small media agency, working with different render engines like:
Octane, Cycles, Vray
We have about 9 Systems with following configuration:
1x Titan for viewport
2x 1080 Ti for rendering
With this config, we have fluid viewports while rendering.
But after windows 10 updates, we have nvidia drivers above 383.
Now it feels like all 3 gpus are rendering, although the load on the viewport gpu is nearly 0%
I already talked to nvidia support and send the gpuz log files. The problems occur on every workstation
and it seems that its not a hardware problem.
Looks like something changed in drivers above 383 so we had to roll back to 381.89
Everything is fine here, and fluid. On all engines…
Would be nice if your guys could test and reproduce with blender.
Just download a free scene and rendering with cycles over gpu on multiple gpus.
But disable the display connected gpu in settings. Then use two viewports, first one for rendering and second one for navigating the viewport. The second one should be fluid while the other cards are on load.
Thanks for help
Have a nice day
