The Benchmarks

Here I will post a few benchmark results using the Iray Benchmark Scene for DAZ Studio.

Test 1A

This will be the baseline,.. GTX1080 as primary on x16 with the monitors. GTX1080Ti will be for CUDA only.

Test 2B

Switch monitors. Skipped the Cinebench on this one... not sure why, but I just wanted to start the other test,...

Test 3A

Ok,.. this didn't win much compared to any of the other results, unless you check the Cinebench GPU results which is at 107.17 fps...

But since I might want to play a game on my PC, I went with the GTX1080Ti on the x16 and with the monitors connected to it.
