Free and open source 3D creation suite Blender gets funding from Microsoft

Quoting: Vortex_AcheronticBut I wouldn't use Blender on Windows anyway since the render time is a nightmare. You're loose approximate 25% CPU and 6% GPU performance on Windows due to Windows being Windows. Since time is money and time is a vital part of 3D rendering it's just a waste of money and time if you render larger projects.

This may be why they are sponsoring it!
Like others have said, I still don't trust them as far as I could throw mount Everest.

However, good news for the Blender team.

What play button have you been clicking on lately?

Quoting: furaxhornyxI really like this idea, however, I am wondering how this would work with multiple monitors ?

For example, I have 2 monitors, one is 180Hz with Gsync, and the other is 75Hz, so technically I could play at 180Hz (max) with Gsync enabled, (like I did when I was using Windows), but under linux, I am capped at 75Hz with no Gsync...

So I am afraid that the answer to these question will be biased.

But that's a general X11 thing, so that applies to everybody that has GSYNC on Linux. It only works on a single screen setup.

Same with AMD too, I have a 144hz FS2 screen as my main and a standard 60hz pannel as my second. Never actually tried freesync yet as it's to handy having the second monitor on!

Quoting: StraToNUhm... Please correct me if I'm wrong, but in French, saying that "something isn't going anywhere" means it's a lost cause. This didn't sound good to me at all when I first read it. Can you please confirm?

In English it means that it is here to stay. i.e. it will keep on being worked on. Nothing more nothing less.

It can also mean that Linux isn't improving. Which could be a reason to not put effort into the Linux version. Don't think that was the intention though. The wonderful inaccuracies of human languages. :D

To be frank I took it to mean linux gaming isn't going anywhere

Quoting: Liam DaweIn English, it means it's quite literally not going anywhere. As in, Linux support is staying.

No it does not!

It needs context.

Quoting: vipor29i can only imagine what the pc side of things will look like.the console is always lower res.

It's a 30 fps video. It also looks very artifacty to me. Honestly not impressed considering this is a demo video under completely controlled conditions.

May be you had streaming issue at the time? Looked fine for me @4k

As for the news, can't say am that interested TBH as Epics linux support toward their games has been shall I say rather lacking since the UT days.

Don't take a massive setup to get to them numbers depending how long he's been doing it.

Am only doing GPU whilst computer is on a few hours in a day and a few in evening and am 5th.

I would leave it on but just don't get the tasks to do.

Makes no sense, only time i've had corrupt work is if the GPU had been clocked, The prop OpenCL driver is the same even if you're using it with the open or stack.
