Installed a 3080 yesterday. As far as I know, the latest RH7 Beta is supposed to bring Ampere/RTX3000 support. Cuda rendering works fine but when I activate Optix, Rhino crashes when I start raytraced display mode. When I switched to raytraced the first time, Rhino went unresponsive. I guess some compiling was ongoing? I was impatient and killed the process, so maybe I just broke something? At least that’s the case when killing Rhino while OpenCL kernels are being compiled.
I would assume that the McNeel developers have gotten Ampere cards from Nvidia early and had time to test it?
I haven’t tried any of the available denoiser plugins yet. Will try that next.
Here is a Holomark run with RH6.
I have the Asus 3080 TUF OC, it’s huge and heavy, although this model is still slightly more compact compared to most other models. Regarding the 10GB of Vram, this is enough for me. I don’t render big architectural scenes nor do I use huge textures. Mostly product renders and even 8GB of Vram have always been more than enough for my kind of work. For those of you who do architectural stuff, the 24GB 3090 might be more suited. But beware, Nvidia will bring a 3080Ti with 20GB soon, which will probably make the 3090 look like a pretty bad deal.
I’ll post further experience with this card here and hope others throw in theirs here as well.
