Hardware or Software

Post by GeniusCobyWalker » Tue Feb 24, 2009 8:59 am

Does this renderer use hardware (GPU) or software (CPU)

Blender Software
YafRay Software
Aqsis Software
Blender Game Engine Hardware

If this is Hardware I will switch right now :!:
Hate my Geforce 8800 is doing nothing.

CPU. Indigo doesn't take any advantage of GPU, mostly because of graphic-cards not being optimized for double-precision, AFAIK...

Why don't you just try it? :P Indigo isn't made to be super-fast, but rather to be super-realistic. ;)

+1

Indigo only uses CPU (hence all the SSE, SS2,SSE3 threads around).

On indigo's defense though I will state you are comparing it to at least 2 biased render engines (Blender Internal and Yafray).

from the home page " - Multi-threaded to take full advantage of multi-core CPUs."

please read before asking questions, this is just silly.
Yes i know, my spelling sucks
