Just figured out a trick on my quad...


Recommended Posts

While doing an apophysis render, quality 2500, filter radius 1.0, oversample 4, 1920x1080resolution, i decided to change the affinity in task manager to only "CPU1" to see what would happen. To my surprise, core 1 runs at 100%, and the other cores run an average of 45%, 15-20%, 30-40%, cores 2, 3, and 4 respectively. nearly has cut 25% off my render time.


i'm not sure if this is the same way with other apps, but i figured i would share this with apophysis users who own quads :) the duos may work the the same way by unchecking cpu2.



first one all cores checked, second one only cpu1 is checked. the render engine runs two, equal passes. it displays the elapsed time for both passes.
