yes, i got the first one palit gtx680 4gb

test with the same pc and same scenes with resolution 2x1980x1200.

zotac gtx570 Amp 1.25 gb against palit gtx680 4gb.

scene 1. with a lot of lights  16552 k verts

gtx 570 FPS with shadows on 1-2
gtx 680 FPS with shadows on 1-2
gtx 570 FPS with shadows off 10-15
gtx 680 FPS with shadows off 12-15

gtx 680 FPS with lights off (Layer) 18

gtx 570 movie render 2h.35 24.46 s/
gtx 680 movie render 1h.25 13.46 s/

gtx 680 movie render with lights off (hide layer)  0 h.37 5.89 s

scene 2. with no lights but a big scene 6462 k  verts

gtx 570 FPS 6-12
gtx 680 FPS 10-12

gtx 570 movie render 10h.18 4.06 s/
gtx 680 movie render   7h.45 3.46 s/

scene 3. with lights but a smaler scene  5649 k  verts

gtx 570 FPS 20-22
gtx 680 FPS 22-24

gtx 570 movie render 3h.22 6.87 s/
gtx 680 movie render 2h.50 6.13 s/

need reference scene for tests!!!

test with normal takt GPU shader etc.
i tryed with overglocked there ist not really any change


i test the new 2.2.1 ultimate with the same scenes.

result:
2.2.1 ultimate is a little bit slower maybe 0,1 % but it`posible because if have now 3 24" monitors with 1920x1200 resolution bevor 2 monitors

And if you put those lights all on shadow cache?

Still look like Lumion likes the 680.

Hi ilwedritschel, thank you so much for taking the time to test the GTX680 so thoroughly!

I wonder why scene 1 is so much faster to render on the GTX680...?

And you're obviously right, we do need an official scene for benchmarks, so that people who need to upgrade know what kind of performance and render times they can expect.

Thanks for testing. I expected the 680 to be way faster than my 570, but looks like I'd rather wait for the 780... the difference is not enough to justify the upgrade... except for scenes with lots of lights (your test scene #1).

i think it´s the amount of vert 16552k it is more than the double of the other scene

Thanks for adding the vertex counts to the scene descriptions. Based on your test, it seems that the 680 is way faster for high-polygon scenes then.

GTX690 announced.
Dual Kepler based, 2GB each (4GB total).

But Lumion can't take advantage of dual-GPUs, right? My guess is it will only use one GPU with its respective 2GB of RAM.

Yup, sadly so.
But since it's an insane card anyways, it's still interesting to some extend to follow their releases from that perspective. Clearly some boundaries for board manufacturing have been conquered
and that's very good news. Lets hope the same goes for the GK110 :-)

From some stuff I was reading recently it sounds like we should wait a bit for the GK110.

Double the cores, probably won't have double the memory but that will eventually arrive, so something around 8GB would start to sing  :)

Zotac has now a 4GB single GPU too.

http://www.computerbase.de/news/2012-05/zotac-bringt-geforce-gtx-680-mit-4-gbyte-und-gtx-680-amp/

I will have to migrate maybe to Tesla in the future because they crippled the computing performance. But for Lumion renderings it will be great if you have heavy scenes with lots of large textures.

A Whitepaper on the Kepler GK110 has been released by Nvidia:

http://www.geeks3d.com/20120517/nvidia-kepler-gk110-architecture-whitepaper-2880-cuda-cores-and-compute-capability-3-5/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheGeeksOf3d+%28The+Geeks+Of+3D%29

Some very interesting new features although I'm not sure the focus on accuracy is such a good thing in tandem with Lumion' hatred against the current Quadro series  :D
