Turbocad 2019 Render Problem
Read 153 times
* September 11, 2019, 08:24:22 AM
Hi All,

This is my current system configurations

Windows 10 64 Bit
Turbocad 2019 Platinum 64-Bit Build 37.4
NVidia P3200 Driver 436.30 Quadro

I'm having some issues with rendering. When I render an object using the standard realistic render Turbocad is using the GPU to render and uses a percentage of processing power to do so and I can rotate the object around without issues. As soon as I stop moving the rendered object and turbocad proceeds to do a finer render it starts using CPU instead of GPU and this is freezing the program until it finishes. The CPU takes much longer and uses much more power than the GPU to render.

In the NVIDIA Control Panel I have assigned turbocad to use the High Performance Video Processor. This did not help. Is there a profile that I could try to fix this problem?

Why is this occurring?

The allocation of CPU/GPU depends on the rendering mode you have chosen.  Quality is more likely (almost always, in my experience) to use the CPU while Advanced is more likely to use the GPU.

If you are using RedSDK, you can get more GPU rendering.  Also, when moving/rotating/etc., the display will always use Draft mode until you stop, then it will re-render.

I wish I could be using REDSDK. It is not supported for my card with windows 10.

So it turns out that I am having an interaction between the video drivers, the thunder bolt driver and my dock which the two external monitors are connected to. Thunderbolt should be able to push 40GB/s but there is still a slow down. using thunderbolt may also be what is using up CPU rather than GPU when sending information through the port.

There is no longer an external display port connection on modern dell laptops and so we shall see if they can fix this as it seems to be driver problem.

Redway claims that their drivers work with all video cards from NVidia, ATI and Intel, but omits AMD.

Which GPU are you using?  And how do you know?

Ive got a 1 year old Dell laptop and it works ok, there is one small glitch with objects selected and when rotated they dont show any rotation until you finish movement with the mouse.

Can't remember if it was ok before the last Dell update, but rendering is ok.

Has a Nvidia 1050 graphics card and its an Inspiron I15. Maybe try the onboard Intel graphics card and retest 1st. That way you can eliminate the gpu.
