Yeah …. that’s why I’m asking, The dual xeon seems good in terms of cores since As i said i will be using different render engines like VRAY/Physical/standard render engines for C4D all can make use of all the cores that i can offer, but in terms of clock rate it’s very low … I try to keep things 3 ghz and higher and I couldn’t find a dual xeon with higher clockrate.
for the gpu I will be adding another GTX because sometimes i will be using OCTANE render engine for C4D which run on CUDA video cards and i guess GTX is better than the quadro since The GeForce GTX 780 and GTX Titan currently offer the best performance for OCTANE.
but I’m still not sure about the i7 6 cores performance, do you think it will be fast enough for rendering animations ? usually the kind of animation that I work on are 3D broadcast packages and openers etc for TV.
I hope you can help me with this.
I need your advice about choosing a workstation, I was thinking about getting a new machine but I’m really lost, any advice from you or hints would help me greatly.
The software that I use are:
-C4D and Modo for 3D modeling and animation.
-Vue X stream sometimes for 3D landscapes.
-And Adobe Suite
-Vray or Octane Render Engines.
The options that I have are the same price ( about 4000 usd) :
1st option is a Custom 6 cores build with the following specs : i7 k4960×3.6Ghz – 6 cores, 1 gtx 780 3gb, 32 Gb ram, SSD 240gb and SATA 2 tb.
The second option is 12 cores dell precision t5610 with the following specs : Dual Xeon E5-2630 2.6 Ghz v2 ( six cores ), 32GB RAM, 1tb HDD, Nvidia Quadro K4000.
seems okey, but I still prefer the old one !
+1 I was thinking about it since I started using behance. someday…hopefully !!
thanks all of you guys, haha I’m overwhelmed with the congratz here, good luck for everyone !
