Dell PowerEdge r810


Recommended Posts

Good day


I need some advice please. I am planning to get me a Dell PowerEdge R810 2nd hand and I want to use it as a render PC for 3d Max and Vray. There is only on board Graphic card. I work on one pc and would render on the Dell server. Would this work and can you render on the server knowing that the Graphic card is a very low spec? See link below.




Kind regards

Yes, James is correct, if all that you do is CPU rendering, you should be fine with any video card.

Having said that, unless you are getting that rack server for a very, very good deal. I would recommend you to take a look any builded AMD Ryze or Threadriper machine, you will get way more rendering power for a fraction of the cost of that DELL Rack.


That machine has too many features that you will never use.

If you get those generation of Dell servers from ebay, you really can make a good deal


eg. for $500 a 20/40 core machine ( 2 Xeons equipped , from a total of 4 sockets available... )


ONE of those Xeons still costs over $4,5k alone here: https://geizhals.eu/intel-xeon-e7-4870-bx80615e74870-a615501.html


CPU clock is a bit limited, but maybe you can find a higher clocked variant anywhere
