  2. I would like to build my system - a 3D workstation plus a render node. Here is the configuration and I would appreciate any input. Thank you in advance. Background: I mainly use Maya for modeling and rendering (also animation). I will also use zBrush for organic modeling. I also do a lot of photo processing with Photoshop and Lightroom. I want to build a workstation and a render node because I need speed of single-CPU (for modeling, photo edting etc.) and also time saver by using a render node. My system: Approximate Purchase Date: In this Sep/Oct Budget Range: US$ 3,500-4,000 for workstation; US$ 5,000-6,000 for render node System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D modeling, animation and rendering Are you buying a monitor: No (Already own two - One Dell UP2715K 5K monitor and one 21" monitor) Do you need to buy OS: NO (have Windows 10 Pro) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com/eBay.com/Amazon.com/Local stores Location: Hong Kong Parts Preferences: Prefer Intel, Quadro Overclocking: Yes (for workstation). I guess not for the render node SLI or Crossfire: Yes if that's a plus Your Monitor Resolution: 5K (Dell 5K) + 1920*1080 (21" monitor) 1 - Workstation: MB: Asus X99 DELUXE II, X99, ATX, LGA2011-v3, 8*DDR4 CPU: Intel Core i7 6800K 3.4Ghz 6C12T 15MB LGA2011-v3 BOX(BX80671I76800K) FT RAM : Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2A2666C16R DDR4 2666MHz 16GB Kit (2x8GB) X 4 (I will buy two of this to make it 64GB in total) DISPLAY: PNY Quadro M5000 VCQM5000-PB 8GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Full Height Workstation Video Card SSD: Samsung 950 Pro M.2 2280 MZ-V5P512BW 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 1.1 SSD HD: I think I won't buy HD since I would like to link this workstation to my existing QNAP NAS (TS-563). I already have three 4TB HD and one 256GB SSD installed in the NAS.

Will the ASUS X99 Deluxe II be able to accommodate? This M5000 is a dual slot card This is a lengthy post! Thanks for your patience!
  3. Which is better for my new Rig? Im using Sketchup, 3ds Max, Vray, Lumion, Autocad, Adobe (Ai, Ps)
  4. Hi, I'm building a machine for several 2D/3D programs, but 3DS Max is my current bottleneck, so I want to tailor my hardware to it. Here are my top priorities, in order of importance: 1. Viewport performance with thousands of objects. I would regularly be working with scenes that have ~10 million polygons, as well. (I use instances where I can, but lots of unique stuff in them). I want to minimize viewport lag and the need for bounding box substitution. I also want to conquer the distracting "flickering" (flipping back and forth between wireframe and realistic mode). 2. Quick preview renders. I don't care as much about final render speed, as that's something I can get up and walk away from. I spend 95+% of my time in the viewport building scenes. What I really want is fast preview renders, nitrous, IRay, etc... Things I care about somewhat: 1. Final render speed, should I go the GPU rendering route. I currently use Mental Ray but am thinking of switching to Vray soon. 2. Power consumption 3. Bang for the buck. (Performance is important and I'm willing to spend 1K on a graphics card, perhaps a little more. But if I'm only getting a barely noticeable performance bump for twice the price, then I'll go with the cheaper option.) 4. Photoshop performance/compatibility. This is one of the reasons I wish to stick with Nvidia (I use the Nvidia GPU accelerated features frequently as a heavy duty PS user.) Things I don't care about at all: 1. Animation rendering/performance 2. Fluid dynamics, particles, etc... 3. Longevity 4. Gaming Things I'm not sure whether or not I should be caring about: 1. Error checking (apparently Quadros are better than this). 2. Heat (does this slow down performance?) 3. "Accuracy" - this is a term I've seen thrown around among heavy Autocad users in reference to Quadro superiority, though with what appears to be differing definitions. I'm 95% sure this isn't a priority to me, as I'm dealing with concept art/matte painting and not precision-based software. General questions: 1. If I opt to not collapse most of my modifiers, what part of the graphics card handles them? I had assumed that extra processing (CUDA) would play a bigger part of this is the case. 2. Am I correct in assuming that I don't need much memory on the graphics card for viewport performance? I read somewhere that the viewport doesn't consume much, maybe edging on 2GB, so 8GB would be WAY overkill. 3. Is there a hypothetical situation where a large scene could be opened by the Quadro but not by a GTX? Information about my current build (subject to reluctant change, as I already have these parts): Processor: Single quad core, i7 4.0GHz). I read that viewport performance favors less cores with more power per core. 32 GB of RAM. Motherboard Hard drive Not sure if other info is relevent. Oh, and I'm using Max 2014 but may upgrade to 2015. -------------------------------------------------------- Nvidia Quadro k4200, GTX 980/970, or something else...? So I was going to buy the Nvidia Quadro K4200, because I was told that its drivers supported better viewport performance. However, I saw many users on various forums say that they were not impressed by the viewport performance bump it provided, and that it was negligible. They were in the "GTX-has-much-better-specs-for-the-price" camp. "Team GTX" I've then seen people with the viewpoint that specs don't matter at all, and that it's "all in the drivers." ("Team Quadro") They proclaim that Quadro's superior drivers make a dramatic difference in Max workflow, and is totally worth the hefty price. They also say that there are important hardware differences as well, that it's not just optimized Quadro/throttled GTX drivers. "Team GTX" then counters that this USED to be true, but that Quadro and GTX have converged in recent years. They give anecdotes on how well their Many of the benchmarks and discussions online are either outdated (Quadro NON-Kepler series compared, for instance), or they just compare just gaming cards/workstation cards without crossover. I've used head-to-head benchmark sites which show the GTX 980 being superior by a wide margin. But again, the benchmarks seem to be targeted at gamers. Further complicating things are the GTX 970/980 vs. the Titan. It seems that there is little advantage offered by the Titan to justify the price for me. -------------------------------------------------------- I'm new to this sphere, so I don't have much trial-and-error to draw upon, so any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I hope I brought enough specifics to the table that this won't be seen as a generic contribution to the debate.
  5. Hi Guys, Currently I'm cornered with my Current PC, I m going to threw that and going to build one, The Perfect & Kick-Ass Workstation, Yeah.... That what I really Need... Actually I m getting Angrier & angrier with my this PC.... So, I wanna know that what kind of Parts do I use? Budget : 10000+ $ (Note: Please dont give me any suggestions about buying AMD, They Sucks at my point of view ) Main Uses: 3Dsmax + VRay 90% Graphics Design 5% Gaming 5% Aim: Fastest Rendering with Vray in 3dsmax I got NO IDEA... i7 or Xeon? GTX ot Quadro? SUGGEST ME Pls Help Its Urgent!! Thanks In ADV
  6. Hi.. i am architecture student from Malaysia.. ive plan to build a computer to do my works. Just want to know if my system are good for my architecture works? Processor - intel i7-4770 3.4ghz MoBo - Asus Z87- Pro GPU - Nvidia Quadro K600 Memory - 2x8gb Kingston hyperX HDD - WD Black 1Tb PSu - Corsair CX650M For the works, I mainly use AutoCad 2D, Sketchup, 3Ds Max, Vray, C4D, Rhino, Photoshop and Illustrator.. and i dont play a video games on it. Im just not sure for the GPU. I have around usd450 for the GPU. (Sorry for my very bad english)
  7. Im planning on buying a new desktop system for a fairly small budget (~$1100 AUD) So far i know i can get a GPU-less system new for just over $800 including case and everything needed to operate (Intel HD 4600 with the CPU) Which includes CPU: i7 4770 3.4GHz HDD: 1TB 7200rpm RAM: 16GB 1600Mhz PSU: 750W = ~$810 AUD When it comes to GPU i am struggling to choose. I can get a GTX 760 2GB for $300 Or an Quadro K600 1Gb for about $200 I know that the GTX kills the K600 on most benchmarks but my main work will be inside 3DS and Vray CPU rendering, and i've read a few reviews showing the k600 with much higher viewport fps than the GTX 670 (and no doubt the 760). My main concerns are: - Will the 1gb ram of the k600 be crippling? - Will the GTX760 leave the K600 for dead in Vray active shade? - Will the K600 have the same advantages in performance in Adobe CS6 suite as in 3DS Max viewports, or will the GTX 760 stretch its legs here? Thanks in advanced! Josh
  8. Budget of about 1100 bucks total. Main use for archviz (3DS & Vray) + Adobe CS6 suite. Other components already chosen Total for whole system without GPU = ~$850 i7 4770 3.4ghz 2Tb HDD 16GB 1600Mhz Ram 650W PSU Cheap Case I've found a GTX 670 *USED* 4GB for 300$ and i can get a Quadro K600 for $200 NEW. Which will be best for all round use in 3DS and Adobe stuff, with viewport performance of high importance. Possibly will want to use Vray Active shade also, but the use of Vray RT is doubtful whilst not being something i want to completely rule out. Any advice would be appreciated!
  9. Hi, I'm looking to build a PC used for applications such Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects, Autodesk Autocad, Maya and Showcase. I'm not a professional but do video editing, animation and 3D design mostly as a hobby at the moment but am looking to study 3D design at university next year so will need a good computer to cope with the stresses of the various CAD software. I also edit videos as a hobby and may use those skill at university next year. So I need a computer which wont let me down in these areas of work. This is the components i am thinking of puting into my PC and i was wondering if you could give me your opinion or any suggestions/advice on the build as a whole for the applications i am going to be using. CPU- intel i7 4770K CPU cooler- Noctua NH-D14 Motherboard- ASUS Z87 pro ATX Memory- Patriot Viper 3 16GB DDR3-1866 Storage- Kinston hyperX 3K 240 GB SSD and 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black 7200rpm Power supply- Corsair 550W ATX12v Case- NZXT Phantom You'll notice that I have left out the GPU that because this is were Im still unsure, I'v been looking at the Nvidia quadro K4000 or the AMD Firepro W7000 or maybe a SLI GTX 680 or the GTX 780 but i would much appreciate an opinion on any of the cards or even a alternative which I haven't listed and whether the cards are overkill for what I looking to do and I don't need to spend so much money! I am planning on overclocking my system to about 4.5 GHz using ASUS 4-way optimization process. The last thing I was wondering was how well a top spec Imac would deal with the applications I want to use? Many thanks
  10. Hello, I have two topics I need some advice on please. They are sort of linked. I currently have a twin Zeon machine I am using, but am wanting to move this to be my renderer and build a working machine for modelling & test renders etc. 1. I need to make a decision on the graphics card. Do I go with a couple of GTX cards or a Quadro? Is it all about the CUDA, the more the better? I am wanting to get the best performance in VrayRT as I can. 2. With my work now being spread out over more than one machine. I am wanting some sort of network storage/server. However I know nothing about this other than I want to be able to have 2-3 machines all reading/writing and rendering etc from the same drives. (With one of the drives providing media to the rest of my house). I'm not sure if just a Nas or an all in one server/storage device would suit me best? Is windows server hard to get your head around for a novice? I have seen a few with that installed and it's a bit off putting atm. I would like to spend around £500 -($7-800) and have 5-8 drive bays if possible. Any recommendation or insight into this would be a great help. Cheers Adam
  11. My new HP Z820 workstation has proven quite problematic when it comes to it's nVidia video drivers. The video driver constantly restarts whatever applications are open, and gives a "video driver has stopped working and has restarted successfully" message. I have downloaded and tried several driver versions, namely: 276.28, 305.29, 311.15 and all give the same crashing performance. I am now currently on ver 311.35 released a couple of days ago from nVidea and though more stable than the previous versions, has crashed again once this morning (followed by a blue screen!); So was wondering if anyone else has the same setup rigged and if they're facing the same problem? Also, looking into the subject I stumbled upon nVidea's Maximus configuration for the Tesla-Quadro setup, I have downloaded the config setup file and have it setup, but would like more insight on the configuration if anyone has more in-depth info please. EDIT: Using windows 7 64-bit Cheers. Amer
  12. Hi, I want a laptop that edit and render large files(in 3dsMAX,Rhinoceros, AutoCAD). I dont want buy 5000$ nvidia quadro laptops because gtx and firepro series have same gear also cheap. What should i buy? Thanks anyway
  13. so my question is if any quadro gpu is better thatn the gforce family for vectorworks, autocd, maya, cs6, etc. I want to buy a mobile workstation and i want to know if the effort for bying a quadro is worth, because i think a ge force with enough own memory like 2 or 4 gb wil be enough, can u tell me if this is true?
  14. Hi, does anyone knows about performance drivers issues for our Nividia Quadro? I'm actually working with the nitrous viewport drivers, not so bad, but sometimes i've got some weird problems... I'm a little bit disapointed when i see that a Nvidia GTX 480 is powerfull than my Quadro 4000 with this viewport! Without performance drivers, any interest to work with Quadros... Thanks for your advice. M.
  15. Hi! I was just looking some options for a new videocard and found the Quadro FX 1800. Does anyone know whats the difference between this card and lets say the GTX260? Does it affect rendering time? Any information about the card is appreciated!
