I have the cash waiting for something…
Im mainly doing an upgrade from a 2060super, that I manage easily to reduce to 1FPS when raytracing achviz scenes - in fact, I often get the dreaded “Nvidia driver has crashed and restarting” error when I really crank it up.
In making my decision for the next purchase, I really need to determine if the above crash is caused by running out of memory (currentlt 8GB) and will be significantly eliminiated by going to 24gb, or if it is another problem that basically wastes the huge investment ‘double the money’ as I dont expect the 3090 will perform significantly better than the 3080 in as far as it is nowhere near double the cuda cores or rtx capability.
Next Question. NVLink
Im not interested in games, but is there any significant benefit to this for increasing the performance of visualizations if Im making movies in UE with the offline renderer via sequencer, rather than real time? I understand the editor makes no use of NVLink. Is this still correct?
I just read that blender can use NVlink to double the memory of a dualcard setup. I might be learning Blender if this is true. Otherwise is NVLink any good for anything in UE, or even if its supported in the next engine UE5?
