[Sidefx-houdini-list] open cl and quadro on h12
Thursday, 16 August 2012 Thu, 16 Aug '12
I am curious about what tweaking can be done in Houdini to maximize the potential on the GPU as well. I have a quadro 6000 at work on dual Zeons and to tell the truth we are all disappointed with the cards and their performance. I have always felt like something is not quite right...the machines are made by Boxx and it just does not make much sense to me with the quality of all the hardware. We have tested it along side sli'd 580's and 670's in Touch Designer and saw better performance on the lower end cards. Initially the machine had two Quadro 6000's sli'd On Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 8:28 AM, Alvaro Castaneda <varomix at gmail.com> wrote:
Hey Michael, are there any differences when switching?, like the sim been different cause is a different code, I guess the question is, is there any noticeable difference? Cheers!!
