If you are familiar with the Nvidia lineup of products you know that we have a group of GPUs aimed at the […]

Single family house: On a mobile GPU

A common sense between artists using Blender and Cycles to create architectural visualization is that you need high GPU options. And a few types of options like integrated boards from mobile computers wouldn’t meet the minimum requirements for architectural visualization. I do agree with that at some level because you can always put the heavy […]
