i just stumbeld upon this tweet. it says that openCL performance in cycles will improve with blender 2.79. according to this it seems like openCL isn’t that far behind CUDA anymore. quite difficult to tell, because i only found this other graph where openCL seems to be 50% slower, worst case. i get the impression, with 2.79 it might roughly be on same level of performance? here i found more about further improvements and added features made to the upcomming cycles version. sounds like pretty good and promising news.
my question @nathanletwory :
when blender and cycles improve with a new release (especially 2.79), will those improvements find its way into cycles for rhino and its raytraced mode? if so, would improvements still find its way to rhino after rhino6 is not wip anymore?
