Hypershade Previews with Arnold GPU are Noisy, CPU is not. (Maya 2022)

In GPU mode it's like the Hypershade preview doesn't progressively refine itself. It seems like it stops after just a few samples.


Anyone know if I'm missing something?

Material Viewer renders use a fixed AA = 5, so for some materials, like frosted glass for example, GPU previews are noisier
