Rendering on GPU server - tile size

To utilize power of all 8 GPU cards tile size should be set reasonably, please use the following formula as guideline:

  • horizontal resolution (X) divided by 8 and verical resolution (Y) divided by 8 for average frame resolution

If tile size will be higher than 400-500 on X or Y divide it by 2 or more so final render tile size shall be between 150-500. Small tile size are good for CPU rendering, GPU rendering needs slightly bigger size. GPU tile size doesn't have to be power of 2 unlike to CPU rendering.

Too low size will increase render time, too big will not utilize all 8 gpu cards and will also increase render time. Tiles should be evenly distributed in a frame.
