vray 3 Vs 2 Speed Test

HOW MUCH FASTER IS THE NEW VRAY 3 BETA FASTER THAN PREVIOUS VERSIONS SUCH AS VRAY 2.4?

How much Faster Is The New Vray 3 Beta Faster than previous versions SUCH AS VRay 2.4?

05 September 2013

Vray 3 V’s 2.4 the speed fightout:

When I first installed the new Vray 3 Beta apart from the new features the first thing I wanted to take a look at was the speed, how much faster is it? I thought I would share some quick tests ive done with the new Vray 3 Beta, The below tests were done with Vray 3.05.01 & Vray 2.40.04. The Chaos Group has changed the method of pricing and with Vray 3 you will have to for extra render nodes full info can be found here.

Instalation of the vray 3 beta was very quick & simple as always & it is easy to switch & re-install previous versions, as far as I know you cannot have both versions installed at the same time but it only takes 5 minutes to re-install/swap from an older to new version.

My first tests were very basic & I just wanted to review & test the speed of Vray 2.40.04 Vs Vray 3.05.01. I wanted to test the Chaos statement “Early comparisons show speed increases from 1.5 to 5 times faster.” listed at http://www.v-ray.com/features/faster-ray-tracing/ was about right.

All of these tests are only quick tests using CPU rendering, the scenes have not been optimized and use a basic material scene from http://www.vray-materials.de/ which is a great source for vray materials.

Adaptive subdivision image sampler & Global illumination setting on the standard Medium Irradiance map & Brute force secondary engine. This scene could be optimized to render a lot quicker but it was just a quick test using i7 920 Cpu @ 2.67 Ghz with 12Gb ram on Windows 7 – “New computer/s due soon, which is one of the reasons for doing this test”

This is just a quick & simple test & my mathematics is not a strong point so if you spot any discrepancies let me know!

So how much faster was Vray 3 V’s 2.4 for me during my quick tests, take a look below & more to follow soon:

Conclusions so far:

So the question was “How much Faster Is The New Vray 3 Beta Faster than previous versions?”
Answer: Chaos Groups Vray 3 vs 2.4 is that Vray 3.0 Beta is a LOT faster at raytracing than previous versions!
