This is interesting, especially if you were looking at buying Reality 4 because you can’t run Octane with Daz Studio. NVIDIA has released a powerful new GeForce GTX 960 slot-in graphics card (review) that should run Octane, and at an ideal $200 price vs. power point. But before you whip out your credit card, just remember to factor in:
* The probable need to upgrade your PC’s power supply unit. Even a new PC probably only came fitted with a wimpy PSU, unless you have a hardcore gaming PC.
* The electric bills that these graphics card beasts run up, once you slot them into a domestic ‘always on’ PC.
* Do you actually have the space and the correct type of slots in the PC case, so you can fit the card in?
Those fans are going to make a fair bit of noise, too, if you pride yourself on how quiet your PC runs.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
