2.8 test
Open, Needs Triage by DeveloperPublic


A simple test done on one machine so it’s an apple for apples test which makes hardware specs pointless, a basic cube was rendered.
2.79b – cycles = less than 1 second not enough time to see Gpu usage
2,8 – cycles = 50% to 65% Gpu 9min 44sec Eevee = 7.39 seconds Gpu 100%

Dont think hardware specs are pointless here.

Could you provide information as requested here

  • Operating system:
  • Graphics card including driver version:
  • Blender version used (hash from splash screen)

Win 10 Home
GeForce 840M 418.81

Quick note on this machine, it is about 5 years old and Blender has run as smooth as can be on it over the years, absolutely no issues whatsoever.
I have just started testing 2.8 so will let you know what I find, there is one thing I would like to tag on this as it may not be a bug so do not want to create a new action.
The laptop that I am using for the test was originally Win 8, then 8.1 and now 10, not once have I installed Python but when I tried to install 2.8 on my tower I get a no Python installed error and have to close the program.
Should Python not be included in the download as it is for previous versions, I did not get the error on the laptop, only on the tower.
