bliblu bli (bliblubli) added a comment to D2254: 20% to 140% Speedup for the OpenCL kernel.

On windows (to get results comparable to BA and because most user are on windows) to render https://developer.blender.org/F360889 with one tile:
Using buildbot e12f5b6 (VS2013) it renders in 2:19.60 with 25.21s preparation so about 1min55s of GPU rendering
Using the same commit plus this patch (VS2015) it renders in 1:18.15 with 18.44s preparation so about 1min of GPU rendering.
so it's 115s for master(e12f5b6) against 60sec for master(e12f5b6+patch) which allows to render 92% = nearly 2x more frames in the same time.
I'll investigate SoA's role further in this case.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D1799: Presets for scene units.

As I understand it the thing being requested by @Mikhail Rachinskiy (alm) is a display / text entry unit. So setting that "display unit" to e.g. mm instead of m would ensure that:

  • Values are displayed in mm rather than the current automatically defined "best fit" unit. So it would display 1000mm rather than 1m (while perhaps still switching to another unit if there are too many zeros?).
  • Text entry of a value without a specified unit would be interpreted as mm, so entering "1000" would give you 1000mm rather than 1000m.

Correction: crash.blend requires you to render somehow. I forgot to turn on the preview render, so just going to 3D View will not reproduce results. Using processor microcode just seemed to make it crash harder. CLI output was the same.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2254: 20% to 140% Speedup for the OpenCL kernel.

By the way, we have to be careful with comparing render times between 2.78 RCs and a custom builds, since there have been Cycles changes in master and they might also affect performance. I don't know if that's the case here, just noting.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to D2254: 20% to 140% Speedup for the OpenCL kernel.

Benchmarks seem fine but differences are smaller not as big as tests on Windows, drivers are probably quite different. Still very decent speedups.

It surely is experimental, but it's a huge game changer, and I just can't wait to use it throughout my projects. That's why i'm testing and reporting issues so bad:) And many people already treat it as a killer feature and make reviews, such as Andrew Price.

We really need a way to reproduce the issue to investigate this.
