    Now add two of those to the shopping cart, plus an expensive dual Xeon motherboard, plus a monster-sized well ventilated box, a top of the line power supply, two high end CPU cooling systems, 32gb of ram, a modern graphics card. SSD storage. A high end 27 inch monitor..

    This is a very expensive machine, but I use it a lot more than my car. It's well worth it for the type of work I do, wich is getting scenes ready to render. A pure modeling workstation doesn't benefit from this many cores. But having VPR this responsive is vital to my sanity and the quality of my work.

    with 2 overclocked 3770k processors, that might kick, and be fairly cheap.

    (not sure if it's possible, if the motherboard allows it, but maybe...)


    if so, it should give you about 45min render time.

    Not possible, only Xeons can be put in pairs.

    Haha! Yayyyyy!


    Just as a quick test I did my work machine too... wish I had this bad boy at home
    My work machine does the same scene in:

    1hr 03mins

    Dual Intel Xeon X5650 @ 2.67ghz
    16GB RAM
    Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit
    Quadro 5000 2.5gb
    LairdSquared | 3D Design & Animation

    Desk Work:
    HP Z840, Dual Xeon E5-2690 v2, 32GB RAM, Quadro K5000 4GB
    Desk Home:
    HP Z620, Dual Xeon E5-2680, 80GB RAM, Geforce 1050 Ti 4GB

    Simple air cooling
    I have 2 PCs with a CoreI7 2600K, both running at 4.3Ghz. One is cooled by a Noctua NH-U12P-SE2, the other by a Scythe Ninja 3.

    So any consensus on best bang for your buck as far as current CPUs and LW rendering goes? I've always liked sites like this:

    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_value_available.html

    It shows performance versus price (though the prices are a little messed up on this listing). I've been wanting to build a new machine and am fine going for something a few notches down from the best to save a little cash.

    Looking at this thread, I think single-processor machines deliver the most bang for the buck right now. If you want to go dual-processor, Dave Jerrard's setup will cost just under $2k for these components:

    • Two Opteron 6272 processors
    • ASUS KGPE-D16 motherboard
    • Four sticks of Kingston KVR1333D3D4R9S/8G for 32GB RAM
    • SeaSonic Platinum Platinum-860 860W PSU
    • Two Noctua NH-U9DO A3 coolers


    ...and that does not include the case, the hard drive(s), the video card, the OS or the DVD drive.

    F9 and VPR will max out all cores on a machine, so if you only care about F9/VPR a box with many slow cores will outperform a box with only a few fast cores. My machine and Dave's machine use the exact same (outdated) Bulldozer architecture. I have four modules (eight "cores") running at 3.6Ghz; Dave has sixteen modules (32 "cores") running at 2.1Ghz. His machine renders this benchmark in 57 minutes, while my machine renders it in two hours and 15 minutes.

    However, since Modeler is single-threaded, I prefer modeling on my FX-8150 machine (turbo mode: 3.9Ghz) over Dave's machine (turbo mode: 3.0Ghz). My gamer machine also cost less than half of what it cost to build Dave's Opteron workstation.

    Made it just under 2 hours --- 1 hour 59 minutes 4 secs to be exact - i7 3820 3.60 GHz no overclock | 32 GB Ram - GeForce GTX 660 | win7 pro.

    i'll go with Risgo's next... post#40

    render time - 1h 7m
    3930k overclocked to 4.2 GHz

    cheap! :] (and good for Dynamics and Modeler)

    Does anyone have experience of whether rendering is generally quicker on a Linux platform. I know this can't be done with Lightwave but I'm thinking other cross platform programs where a direct comparison could be made.

    In 2004, Warner Bros Feature Animation ran the Windows version of Screamernet on its Linux render farm using WINE. That way they could run third-party plugins like Sasquatch. Maybe someone with Linux could test this benchmark under LWSN -3 using WINE and report the render time.
