Render nodes

Recommended Posts

Hi there! im thinking about building some rendernodes (a humble render farm) and somethings are not clear to me.

1-is the cache size important for a cpu that is going to run EXCLUSIVELY render?

2-Also, the ram size... 512mb is enough or 1gb would change drastically the performance?

Thanks in advance.

I would not worry too much about the CPU cache. I would invest the money in a faster CPU.


As for ram...... I render using the built in VIZ 4 engine and such and for the "average" model improved rendertimes drop like a rock after 1GB. now if you are doing REALLY REALLY complex renderings you may want to look at 2GB.


hope this helps
