Today we tested our GTX server with 4x nVidia 970 gpus with Arion renderer.
The machine scored 5312,37 with Arion Benchmark. The result is quite ok but there is not a big difference between 4x 970 gpus and 4x 580 gpus rendering times – if I calculate it right only about 10% speed increase in favour of newer cards.
Compared to the old top performer 580 iray bench scores are about 30% higher on new maxwell architecture gpus – 970. With Octane renderer 970 gpus are about 25% faster than the old 580 and definitely less power consuming.

Cant wait to test the GTX 8×970 or the 980 Ti!
