Question on Use CPU when performing GPU accelerated processing
« on: December 02, 2022, 06:30:00 AM »
I've seen multiple posts on this and I can't seem to find a "best practices" guide on whether to check it.

For example, should I check it if I have a dedicated GPU?

What about if I have an "integrated" CPU in something like the Apple M1 chips?

Should I select it for certain operations and not others?

I've read the manual a couple times and researched some of the forum posts, but I can't find a definitive guide on this.

Thanks,

PS - I know that the manual says to disable this setting when there is a discrete GPU, but I've also seen advice to the contrary on the forum.

For me, it's faster to enable it during the alignment phase, and then disable it for meshing and texturing.
