Sometimes a mere 1 percent and sometimes slower. I tested with Havana and some custom scenes exported from C4D R20. Also the benchmark released a couple of weeks ago didnt detect the gpu as an RTX gpu.
I know for sure that RTX is working in games so it must be a driver/octane problem.

My setup:
Dell XPS 15 9550
i7-6700HQ (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)
16Gb Ram
EGPU: Razer Core X
Gigabyte Gaming OC RTX 2070
External monitor AOC Q2790
Driver details:
NVIDIA 419.35
25.21.14.1935


We have seen some RTX devices reported as not supporting RTX using the RTX version of the benchmark before, specially for 2070 we have received feedback from NVidia saying that support may be still on its way so this may be your case. Do you see anything in the log that that could give us more information?

I have just seen the 2019.2 video materials. What about the "Anime Kernel" that have been shown in the previous video announcement material ?


No answer ? Another question (in fact nearly the same as the previous one) : Will the "Brigate" Kernel (seen in the video announcement) offer an "Anime" look option ?

Thank you for reply!

These were my logs in Octane2019RTX:

Started logging on 21.03.19 20:11:23
OctaneRender 2019 (7000000)
Starting render target RTX performance test...
Rendering (RTX Off)...
Rendered 36 samples at 3.18 Msamples/sec
Rendering (RTX On)...
Rendered 35 samples at 2.91 Msamples/sec
Finished: 0.97 to 0.92x faster with RTX On
Starting render target RTX performance test...
Rendering (RTX Off)...
Rendered 35 samples at 2.83 Msamples/sec
Rendering (RTX On)...
Rendered 34 samples at 2.82 Msamples/sec
Finished: 0.97 to 0.99x faster with RTX On

I don't think it is any use :(
I too read that people had problems with the 2070, I really hope it will be solved soon.

Is there a version out this that people with Studio all-access subscriptions have access to? the one seems to be for the bigger license only? or am I missing something? thanks

Hi,
please have a look at this other discussion about v2019.1-XB1, without RTX support, but with all the other features exposed:

marcvankaam,

I had the same problem with my 2x RTX 2070 their was no difference with "RTX On". The problem is the Nvidia driver 419.35. Download the new version of creator ready driver 419.67 that Nvidia did for GDC. Is not available yet in the normal nvidia driver location. Get the Windows version from here https://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/419.67/419.67-desktop-win10-64bit-international-crd-whql.exe&lang=us&type=TITAN.

See below the test with 2x RTX 2070 with benchmark scene where I got 3.16 times faster with "RTX On" and 70.08 M/sec.
