Here is the test picture.
After spending a LOT of money basically building a new computer, now I had to fork out about the same amount of money to replace my gtx 980ti card. I certainly didn't want to have to do it but I couldn't go back and run only on my two gtx 970's. There wasn't enough Vram to do most of my rendering. So I had to dig deep and upgrade again to a GTX 1070ti.
This bad boy has 8gb of vram, two more than my 980ti. I LOVE this new card! I just got it in, after the first card was defective and was returned and this is now the replacement. This card is frigging great, if I had the money i'd have gotten the 1080 with 11 gb of ram but I couldn't justify getting it. Let me say that I have a few sets I bought that were too big to open and render in with my ram limits. I couldn't have more than 4 characters in most sets unless the sets were stripped down to min props. The new card needed to tested on how much could be opened in it. I was able to open the Club 9 set, the full version ( some of the other artists I read have had the same problems with how big the set is and they could not use it like I couldn't) and get it rendering with no problems. So I figured I'd tray more. I began adding actors 4 at first, again no problem. I was like wow, let me add more. So I added 4 more and again no problems! I am now at 10 actors and it only just then had to use out of core memory. 9 actors can be opened in this set and still only use the cards ram. The only limits I'm seeing are from DAZ studio, the program slows down a bit making movements sluggish and I use Octane to render in and it is also a bit slow and sluggish, but it works! Speed wise, it renders about the same speed as my 980 did and both 970's together. So no improvements on how fast I can get a typical render done in, usually around 3 hours.
I might post that render after it finishes.
