Blender Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people who use Blender to create 3D graphics, animations, or games. It only takes a minute to sign up. Not a SLI connection. Both cards were previously installed in this machine separately with the drivers updated for both.
Blender doesn't want to open. A video card and driver with support for OpenGL 3. Why am I getting this message? Here is how I made it work.
I had to flash the bios. If you are like me playing with the settings all the time you need to reset the bios by taking out the little round battery on the mobo. Depending on your mobo, the flash reset button next to the usb slots on the mobo didn't work for me, it might work for you. After that blender will open and both cards are seen in Cuda and Optix.
Indeed there is some work but I'm pretty happy with the result right now. However render time is not cut in half though. Sign up to join this community.

I can't update anything because I use a laptop. You can still open Blender 2.RTX 2080Ti SLI - These results are INSANE
Recently started in Blender and never used 2.The results are impressive. While it can be visually impressive at times, the performance hit that comes with it can be off-putting. GPU rendering gave the industry one hell of a boost by itself, along with heterogeneous rendering, combining both CPUs and GPUs to render the same scene.
There is no firm date yet as to when the full OptiX feature suite will be integrated, but it might come with the Blender 2. Fortunately, the Blender Foundation has succinct and easy-to-follow guides on how to take part in the alpha program, and integrating the RTX features. Alternativelyinstead of compiling everything from scratch, you can simply download the daily builds directly from the Blender Foundation, under its experimental builds section, since OptiX support has now been integrated into that build ironically, after we went through the process of compiling the build manually.
Certain features that are supported may not work correctly, either. The biggest issue for some people will be lack of Branched Path Tracing support. This does pose an issue in one of our benchmarks, and we had to use Path Tracing with modified settings to get it to work.
Being mindful of this, when benchmarking different scenes, we saved high-resolution images of final renders for both CPU and OptiX to compare. The difference should be pretty apparent. Overall, we are seeing render times cut in half on the BMW test, just by flicking a switch. Later on, we show how this scales up with the rest of the system. The identical scores for the RTX S and S were quite repeatable, and are just a half second different between them, showing the limitations of such a quick render.
In a more complex scene such as the Classroom one, the performance delta is a little less dramatic, but still impressive. GPU-based rendering over CPU was already a huge leap in performance, yet here we are again, with yet another leap.
Those two charts sum up the overall look at GPU scaling with OptiX enabled and disabled, but now we turn our attention to the bigger picture and show just how absurd rendering times can really get, as we compare it against the CPU, and heterogeneous processing. The power of GPU rendering is quite well-known at this point, as long as the workload being processed fits within its framebuffer. Just comparing the RTX against an arguably very powerful CPU is kind of unfair, though, when you see the two are in completely different leagues.
However, keep in mind that these are very short projects. There is also no perceptual loss in image quality, either. The normal Pavilion render was a little too quick for our initial tests, completing in just 15 seconds with OptiX seriouslyso we used a more aggressive version of the scene, based at night.
This uses samples per pixel and is rather timely even at a low resolution. The Agent render was something we typically avoided for a while, partly because it was difficult to get working, and when it did, it took ages to complete ages for a benchmark when you have 15 CPUs, each taking minutes a piece for a single test.
There is no easy way to match the equivalent image quality of what Branched rendering does, so we had to take our best yet futile attempt at it with just plain Path Tracing. We managed to effectively match the render time, though, using a mixture of high sample rates and increasing the max bounces, so results should still scale.This quick tip by alexjoaofl may help!
Did you get this error?

I think you are right about the price. I never thought to spend this amount of money in a GPU crazy prices but in our days all the graphics cards are overpriced. RTX is being reviewed has similar to GTXTI, but I think that is unfair because when the ray tracing capability is supported, we will see better performance at least in blender.
Dang it, so pissed-off with them miners! I'm currently in the process of building my new rig. Yeah choosing the right GPU is a bit of a gamble, not sure what to opt for at all Thanks for the tip anyways. In that time there will be more powerful less expensive RTX card. You could just get Ti and then sell it. You did something similar like buying expensive 4k monitor when there was no content for it. The only place the rtx cards are not impressive is video games, in cuda and opencl they destroy last generation cards without even using the new cores.
I have used the method indicated by Alexjoaofl but the same problem always occurs. Blender crashes every time I launch a render with the denoiser function enabled.
Accelerating Cycles using NVIDIA RTX
Does anyone know how to solve the problem? Thanks a lot. I just tried to render the classroom scene in cycles with denoising enable and it worded ok If that does not fix your problem, you may have to find someone with blender programming experience.

I wonder why bother buying an RTX given the price tags I last checked? My old GPU was not capable of handling the things I needed. For now, If you have gtx or gtxTI, I think is best to wait and see.
John on October 27, PM.Hi, I use blender a lot for animation through my business, and have recently upgraded to a GPU. Blender 2. Did you try latest build of Blender or Blender 2. Cuda 10 is now supported but you have to build Blender by yourself. Here you are: This community is fast, really fast. It took me a few hours to set up and get 2. There is a fix to get the linux version working on windows Check the comments on the linux forum post.
I think he may refer to not happening in Blender 2.
TomGraham October 3,am 1. BagelCo October 3,pm 2.
Hi, do you meant the does not render at all or usage of the extra cores? Cheers, mib. TomGraham October 3,pm 4. TomGraham October 3,pm 6. Yes, they have not added the supporting kernel. Ah ok, I think they need update to Cuda May one of the core devs step by to clarify. LazyDodo October 3,pm 8. TomGraham October 3,pm 9. Can you offer CUDA 10 as a separate download? TomGraham October 3,pm To build means to download the latest source code, and compile the program.
Ok thanks! Can anyone share a link of the compiled version? I have no idea how to compile code. Ah OK, is there a windows version anywhere?
My issue is about different colors in Blender screenshot shows my problem. I tried to replicate it in Blender 2. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

Podcast Programming tutorials can be a real drag.Now, Cycles can fully utilize available hardware resources to considerably boost rendering performance. To achieve consistent images across the options, most of the rendering code is shared.
Almost all of Cycles GPU-supported features like hair, volumes, subsurface scattering, motion blur etc. The new OptiX backend is showing some significant speedups compared to the existing options. These speedups are now also possible in thin and light laptops and mobile workstations. The OptiX SDK includes an AI denoiser that uses an artificial-intelligence-trained network to remove noise from rendered images resulting in reduced render times. A change is in the works to add this feature to Cycles as another user-configurable option in conjunction with the new OptiX backend.
You can get optix Denise now as an add-on. The hooks are built in and the libraries are downloaded separately. Pretty much. Even if it was emulating the RT cores, it would be great if both cards could be used in Optix mode.
Hello, I have a question about how to activate the optix, that is, I simply have to activate the option in blender or as a common user, do I have to know how to compile independently? Thanks for your help. For further Optix AI denoising activities would be also cool to have an extra look on denoise low sampled bake output. All in all would be nice to also when these optimisations get an additional cycles bake view and an benchmark scene.
Thanks for the info. So when you need a buisness case. I could give you some. This is such a great news. Just shows that blender foundation and cycles are best thing ever!
