Impact of Cloud Shadows on CPU (vs.GPU)?

Recommended Posts

Hi Steve!

 

Currently my old Core2Duo E8500 system with a new GTX1050Ti GPU is obviously more limited by CPU power than GPU.

Can you say how much CPU resources your Cloud Shadow add-on needs?

Or in other words: How much of this is done in the GPU?

The CPU cost is in turning on water 2.mid in cloudy weather which you can test.

With some tests I noticed no impact on the CPU usage and frame rates compared to low.1 water.

There was an impact on frame rates with my old GTX260, that's why I still had it at low.1.

 

It seems you have a new customer :)
