    A lot faster. It depends which cpu and which gpu. If Cuda is support, your rendering times will get cut by more than half in my experience.

    wow thanks for answering . so whats ur GPU and how many cuda cores you have and how much should i have ??
  3. Kind of depends on what your doing and what you have, there is no way too answer "how fast will X be in comparison to Y doing task Z" when you don't define any of the variables.
    It will speed up your rendering if your software supports it, that much is guaranteed.
  4. I would say an i5 processor, gtx 760/770 and 16 ram is the ideal machine for rendering extra high quality video. I can tell rendering time will be very fast with this configuration or a similar one. I have seen people use multi card solution for rendering as well, but these configurations are too expensive for me to recommend.

    whats ur specs ?? do u do rendering ?
  6. Yes. I do rendering, but nothing professional, mostly in game footage to upload to YouTube. I have i5 4670k, amd 7970, 16 gb of ram now, but I used to have 760 before it changed them, and the rendering times on Sony Vegas pro where a lot better with 760 despite 7970 beats it in games.

    so how many CUDA cores do i need for 3d rendering ?? maybe the minimum ??
  8. I would say at least say 1000, but then again you can never have too many Cudas cores for 3D rendering.

    how bout 96 is it good ??

    how bout 96 cuda cores ?? what should i buy gt 630 1gb gddr5 with 96 cuda cores or gt 630 kepler 1gb ddr3 with 384 cuda cores ? i do rendering thats my only budget , so which do you recomend and which is faster with cuda ??
  11. You can, but expect to have a book handy becuase rendering times are going enormous.

  13. What is your budget? I pretty sure all 630s have the same specs.

    thats my only budget, and NO the GT 630 kepler card has more CUDA than a non kepler GT 630. but the kepler card is ddr3 and the non kepler card is gddr5
    info about GT 630 : http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt-630/specifications
    GT 630 1gb 128-bit GDDR5 : 96 cuda cores
    GT 630 1gb Kepler card DDR3 64 bit- 384 cuda cores
    just tell me the which is better for my needs(above) and which should i buy !! thanks !!
  15. Gt 630 Nvidia Kepler is about 15 percent better and only needs 25w to run, so definitely go with that one.

    but the kepler card is slow compared to GDDR5 one Even though it has 384 cuda cores :

    GT 630 (Kepler) GT 630 GDDR5 128-bit
    MEMORY CLOCK : 1.8Gbps 3.2 Gbps
    Memory Interface : DDR3 GDDR5
    Memory Interface Width : 64-bit 128-bit
    Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) : 14.4 51.2

    so what do you think ? which should i get ?? thanks
  17. You really cant compared cards with different architectures in most categories becuase the specs won't be proportionate to preformance. Kepler is much more effective than Fermi and thus making the gt 630 Kepler a better preformer. I will stick to my recommendation: Kepler 630.
