I'm supporting a team of 4 designers with i7 960 / Dual Quadro 2000 workstations that want to upgrade. Their workflow is 60% Maya 2013 + Vray, ~30% After Effects and Photoshop CS5 (and maybe 5% RealFlow).
Is better performance available by mixing a K5000 and GTX Titan (to support a V-ray RT Viewport and GPU config), or with a single 12GB Quadro K6000 for this workflow?
I've looked long and hard to find if these cards work with CS5 and based on no findings online would guess Adobe CS doesn't even harness CUDA acceleration til CS 5.5 or 6.
Awesome forum, thanks all.
PS: How would access to their 8 node mini Render Farm for rendering (8 x 6-core Xeon E5 2665) bear on optimizing new single workstation hardware choices?
PPS: Is RT built into V_ray now or is that an upgrade?
