Can I use a 3080 FE with a 3070 FE to speed up rendering with Cinema 4D and Redshift?

And what power supply would I need if so? Currently have 850w.

Yep, definitely.

As for power, What does the rest of your system look like?

You won't be able to NVLINK two different GPUs. That said, those GPUs don't support NVLINK anyway :)
