You can clearly check with Vray, Octane, and other rendering software that a single 3080 can’t outperform a single 4090.
Plus the 4090 have have an ECC feature ( like Quadro cards) that’s a life saver on stability within longer rendering project.
More efficient and newer Cuda cores in comparison within 3000 series.
Multi gpus system with more than 4/6 gpus need specific hardware that’s costly upfront and need sometimes a dual PSU configuration.
Maxwell Render didn’t received a major update in the last year.
Considering it doesn’t support Amd gpus, and there is no ETA about a minor release just to integrate the support for Ada Lovelace Gpus, their share in the rendering software market will decrease progressively.
Technology evolve, and if you work in a tech company you must evolve with it.
If we invest in new hardware, we look to newer ones that’s give us an increased performance ratio with other rendering software.
I’m still in love with Maxwell Render, and I would invest more money in the company if a V6 come out.
But actually look like more a death end project.
Clearly I hope to be totally wrong.
