i dont know, i dont wanna look like the usual guy who bashes maxwell, i love it but honestly after i tried v5, there are some things like the quality output (cpu gpu comparison) and the out of core memory that doesnt really appeal me.
Considering i have a redshift license and considering there are out there so many faster and great looking engines, with less headache, i am on the verge of just stopping using maxwell.
i dont think its wise for you to upgrade if you do not invest heavily into GPU rendering and hope you dont have bottlenecks/technical problems which usually are slow to being dealt with at next limit.
I woul have expected a more innovative render, not just "another gpu render".
gpu rendering is already out since years now, i would have preferred a super fast FIRE and interactibve render in GPU that gives you the most realistic preview you can possibly imagine, then still render in cpu.
Rendering in GPU nowadays requires a massive amount of memory because scenes simply became more and more demanding and crowded and filled with geometry.
So unless you use an out of core technology on a render engine, rendering with just GPU internal memory is a pain, unless you are ready to throw lot of money at it.
