I'm an archviz artist, working in the industry since 2004. I switched from MAX to Blender in 2008.
About "London, Belgrave Square 35 Advertisement:"
It was rendered om my computer on double 980 ti. I worked in parallel - so I made and had clients approve for the 1st floor and I sent it on rendering on my second video card, and in parallel I was modeling the next floor - so for 1 week I modeled and approved the next floor and the previous was rendered. At least I needed to render only the 1st floor and it was ready after 4 days on double 980Ti. All project took about 55 days in total including the render time. Denoising made rendering with Cycles up to 20 times faster... I want to say "Thanks a lot" to Lukas Stockner, who made the Cycles denoise implementation. Now Cycles can be faster than Vray even on CPU, and It makes Blender a commercial tool for archviz.
