Would a GPU upgrade increase Stardust performance dramatically?

Nick asked 2 weeks ago

I know this is probably a silly question, but would i be seeing a huge increase in performance in Stardust if i upgraded a 1080GTX to a 2080ti?
According to pudget systems, GPU doesn’t really affect AE performance (normally CPU bound), however with Stardust being a GPU plugin i assum i’d notice a huge difference.
Any idea on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Hi, you will see high increase in performance in some set-ups and on other possibly not, as render / simulation time has many factors.

Thanks! One other question, does Stardust use multi-core processing for simulation? 
Thankyou

Can I add a follow-up question: Would two GPU’s (Nvidia) using SLI improve performance? I’ve got two 1080’s around and would like to know if it’s worth MOBO upgrade to get SLI running.

Also, could we have an answer to @Nick’s previous question RE multi-core / multithread rendering?
