New OctaneBench supporting both Metal and CUDA is programmed for 2021.1 stable, as far as I know, so we need to wait a little bit more.

If someone with Big Navi GPU and Mac Os 11.3 beta 3 would like to do the following test in Standalone PR7, it would be very useful to have a rough idea of the performance:

Here is what I have found so far:

Not really related but here are my results for the Radeon VII and RX 5700 XT, each and combined.
Mac Os 11.2.2 and Standalone PR7.

Thanks for sharing the result with 5700 XT.
I have added it to the graph:

Any news on PR8? Are we waiting for yet another OS update?

any news on a native m1 Mac build? cycles renders much faster natively than under rosetta which is why I was hoping for a native build of both

For reference an early native build is available here: https://github.com/skwerner/blender/rel ... .0-mac-arm

Sometimes it feels like OctaneX is dead in the water. I wonder how many people are actually using it, after all the fanfare? I mean, it’s mainly a small subset of people who bought Mac Pros or use an eGPU setup. Feels like a fairly small gang to be a part of...

Dont get me wrong - I think it’s great what Otoy is doing for us, and the technology is amazing. But it does feel like some of the original excitement has gone. Updates are slow to come (PR8 was supposed to be last month), and there’s so little buzz about it any more. I’m just bored of waiting for it to be finished, since that first Mac Pro announcement all those years ago.

It's been great for me during the pandemic. :) I use it on my home Macs (Houdini, Maya), and then export to .orbx to render on my studio CUDA network. My iMac with 2x5700XT is certainly fast enough as a workstation. And the 16GB VRAM of the internal 5700XT is nice for Houdini OpenCL.

The performance per watt of the M1 looks insane. Looking forward to seeing what a 100 Watt version can do vs. the current ~10 Watts.
