Ok... Here's some basic specs.
I did an Iray render on the CPU alone (because the Nvidia 1080's Pascal framework was not supported) and it took about an hour... and looked pretty shit to be fair.
With me so far? Awesome.
Zeddy had an overheating problem, so out comes the screwdriver of doom and the squeaky-hammer of troubleshooting (long story...)
Zeddy replaced his PSU and re-installed my old GTX 770 (didn't take the 1080 out...)
After realising I hadn't quite plugged everything back in right, I not only find that my two graphics cards are working together like happy little house-mates, but the 1080 is actually supported by Iray now!
Thirty seconds later, I have another render...
Yeah... thirty seconds!
Seriously! Thirty flipping seconds! Most of that was spent caching by the looks of it...
So... in conclusion, Zeddy is awesome (read as 'lucky') and Nvidia are awesome!
So far, I can't see any kind of improvement on the Iray compared to a 3Delight and Omnifreaker's Uberenvironment... but hey, we can all hope, right?
Also, this last week I've come up with about nine new comic ideas... Not including work done on the previous ones...
Err... UP WITH MINISKIRTS!
That is all. Nerding over.
