What are some "cheap" builds for render farms. I primarily use Blender cycles and Daz with Iray.
Seeing as how those are all about CUDA cores, should I just stack as many 980s or titans as I can?
Start a new build with dual 12 core opterons?
Pic semi related
/aco/ does, we just create it here.
Also pose it poorly.
There isn't much info, which probably is so that people don't stop buying current gen cards
Considering they're going from 28nm to 16/14nm you can expect 2-3x times the performance per watt
What's the most cuda core bang for the buck right now?
OP, have you looked into cloud based CPU rendering for Blender?
I'm too lazy to link you the thread directly but there's a thread on blenderartists forum detailing a plugin that works with Amazon cloud and lets you look at the spot price for CPU computing at any given time.
What GPUs is everyone using here?
980 at home, 950m on laptop.
>mfw waiting for preview renders on laptop.
I'm probably going to get a 980 Ti to replace the ancient shit that I'm using now, then I'll actually be able to do GPU renders.
How much does VRAM impact rendering anyway? Would 6 GB allow for reasonably large/detailed scenes?
