I have an intel 3570k cpu and an nvidia gtx 670 gpu, and it only uses my gpu for the 3d clview, but when it renders photos, it only uses my cpu, which makes rendering take so much longer. Is there any way around this?
Revit uses a version of the Mental Ray render engine, which only uses the CPU for rendering.
This is because it is a raytrace rendering app.
3dsMax has the ability to use the GPU when you render with I-Ray.
Revit does not have this ability.
Just in addition... if you are using 3ds for rendering with the GPU make sure you buy a Nvidia card, because it will use the Cuda Cores. Im purchased the ATI fire pro W5000 because the benchmark is higher than the QUADRO 4000, but 3DS does not uset the ATI for GPU render.
Also the same proble occurs with Octane Render.
Have fun rendering
