I was looking forward to the 5.7 release when I read that it would support the new NVidia RTX card, so with the first RC of 5.7, I downloaded it, when tried to setup a scene to try it, with an RTX 2080 in my workstation.
I now see that I can choose the OptiX backend when ray tracing is on, but how can I check whether it actually works ? my CPU shows usage peaks around 100% when I change the view, which was typical when using OSpray, but I was expecting a lot more GPU load when choosing OptiX.
Or was my intuition just wrong ?
So, is there a possibility to know whether the RTX cores are actually used ?
Also I can still choose the OptiX backend, even on my laptop, which does not have a RTX card, so is this expected ?
