I still miss being able to quickview files in open/save windows, but the speed overall is worth it.

 

Apparently that is pretty much gone / useless in OS X now anyway.

If you look through the list of contributors, you can see Todd K gave $1,000. I think its safe to say Adobe is behind it.

Looks like a new 12gb Titan just came out, curious how much of a boost they'll give.

It seems to be double every spec of the Titan (original) I have. I think this is one of those cases where they just sandwich 2 of the current gen chipsets together and give it a new number.

The 680 and 760s are still good cards. I'd just double up on them if I were you.

 

I upgraded from a 680 to a Titan, and only saw a 12% speed increase in TFD GPU sims. The increase in vram was worth it for me at the time, because there were no other 6gb offerings.

Thanks for the update. Sounds like an awesomely ridiculous setup. 

 

Please post some octane results, if you can. My biggest fear with octane is versatility - ie: not being able to update something in a particular fashion that the client requested, requiring us to render things in a different way, blowing deadlines and budget out of the water.
