If you're running Blender, you can't game at the same time though, so your GPU will be idle. Yes, you can set process affinity and limit Blender to only some of your cores, allowing you to game on the other cores, but it's still a horrible experience because the CPU won't boost appropriately for gaming like that, and Blender will fight with the game for cache, memory allocation, bandwidth etc.Just one more note: the review on HWbusters.com states that the 700W PSU recommendation is based on a PC configured with a Ryzen 9 7950X.
That CPU can be way more power hungry than my i5-13600K.
Blender multi-threaded: 187W vs 235W. While after undervolting mine is running CB R23 MT at 140-145W as per HWiNFO64.
So that should shave off quite a bit from that 700W recommendation.
I guess I'll just go for it and see what it gives. If I do see unusual crashes or OCP is getting tripped, I can then still look for a higher wattage PSU.
To the best of my knowledge, V-Ray is the only renderer that tried hybrid GPU+CPU renders and nobody uses the hybrid mode that I'm aware of - it hasn't gained commercial success and the last time our visualisation department assessed it, it was a total disaster.
