richsto Posted January 13, 2014 Share Posted January 13, 2014 Hi guys, I've been using 3Ds Max with VRay for a few years now, but only on a standard PC. I'm in the process of buying a new workstation, I have all the components I wish to buy but have come unstuck on the GPU. I am unsure how the GPU affects render times - I'm currently utilising VRay with the CPU only on long render runs - Up to 48 hours rendering vehicle/character animations. Can I impact these render runs with the GPU or shall I stick to pure CPU power or can I combine the two together.? If I can use the CPU & GPU in unison would investing in a Quadro card such as the k4000 yield any improvement over say a GTX 780.? I'm essentially asking two questions - 1. Is it beneficial to use the GPU & CPU together when rendering or simply the CPU.? If so how can this be done.? 2. If using the GPU to render long animation scenes does a Quadro card have a better impact than a GTX.? Thanks for any answers.! : ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
