For me: 2097 vertices - 44 FPS

Hi Francan, the vertex counter in the top right corner uses the letter k (for kilo) which means 1000. So if it says "2097k Verts" it actually means 2,097,000 vertices.

I'll ask Ferry if he can change this in a future update, so it is less cryptic :)

Hi Morten and Happy New Year

Thank you I made the correction

And you think this information with Vertices and Fps is relevant or not to know the power of our display

Hi Francan, as I wrote in my previous post, you need to test a variety of scenes with the exact same settings, i.e.:

  • Identical version of Lumion
  • Identical quality settings (star quality, resolution, F7, F9, low memory on or off)
  • Identical spotlight shadows (on or off)
  • Identical planar reflection settings (on or off)
  • Identical Global Illumination settings (on or off)

When you tested the Sunny Day sample scene, you didn't mention which star quality it was set to.

Also, your monitor resolution (2560x1600) is way higher than that of the majority of customers, so it will be very misleading to compare the frame rate with that of someone who is running Lumion in 1920x1080 :)

Hi all,
i add precision on my settings in my post above.
As Morten mentioned, FPS may drastically change with settings.
For example when i deactivate (F7) in the sunny day scene my FPS jump to 79 ...

Cheers.

And don't forget, if you change some settings on the nvidia control panel, you can have a huge drop of the videocard performace & rendering
today i have a nivida gtx580 with 1.5go ram and since version 3, I felt a real slow performance for all projetcs
and I wonder if I should change my card with 3go or 4go, to know if  lumion will be less breathless with more memory
thanks

Hi everyone and "Salut Thierry!"
As i said I have a huge difference with my heavy scene handled by a GTX580 3gb: the same scene with a 1,5 GB GTX580 was almost half FPS !!! And unfortunately my brand new GTX680 4GB don't do better than the GTX580 3GB (and same result with a "classic" GTX680 2GB)...
But I noticied a difference in importing big scenes with A LOT of textures: in that case GTX680 4GB do the job where the GTX580 3GB don't sucess in importing the scene...
@Thierry:
Et un petit "reputation point" pour toi Thierry pour ton super film dans le NNG contest (il faut bien s'entraider entre utilisateurs frenchy...)

"8 partout"  :P
in this sales period, maybe it's time to change my gtx580 with more memory

i think it will not be so easy to find a 580 and even more a 580 with 3 or 4 go....

Sorry to be slow to reply to this thread. I had the 3GB GTX 580 and it's great, but I recently spec'd out two new Lumion PCs with 4GB GTX 680 and it made a huge difference - faster render times and faster build-mode frame-rates. I'm afraid I didn't bother with making a test to find out exactly how much better the 680 is, but my impresssion is about a 2x speed boost.

Another reason for switching to the 680 is that the 680 has a Displayport output. Displayport supports billions of colors (for wide-gamut monitors) while the old DVI output only supports a max of 16.7 million colors. Not particularly relevant to Lumion, but I like the additional color support for my Photoshop work. And, of course, it's great having more video memory for big Lumion projects! ;)

Oh, and one last really nice thing about the 680...uses about 100 watts less power (check the specs to be sure).
