Want to build a 12-core system - Page 2

post #11 of 19
$1500 can't get you a an SR-2 and dual Xeon procs.

Maybe look into a dual AMD Opteron build? Some Opteron procs have 8 cores, I believe.

Yes. Mainly fast architecture and hyperthreading. Plus some of them overclock pretty well if you get a board that supports it (SR-2).

i7 x58 6 core. over clock to 3.8-4.8 and 560ti+ gpu your golden. mite be-able to skip on gpu rendering tho, but its faster.
alldepends on software doing rendering

^+1 if you use programs that take advantage of cuda such as adobe premiere pro get an i7 6 core and a nice nvidia card. In premire pro the MPE in hardware mode helps a ton in multiple layer adjustments and rendering.

The solution I plan on going with is a 4-way opteron configuration, which will scale well into Bulldozer territory and probably hold its own well into 2012 (at which point the world ends anyways ).

For MUCH LESS then a dual xeon mobo+2procs, he could get a 4-way motherboard such as:
this one for $729.
Tack on something like four opteron 6128 8-cores for around $219 each, and you're looking at a 4x8=24 core barebone for sub-$1700 range, which will trample most dual xeons in ultra-threaded applications for a fraction of the cost.

Again, such a setup would scale well into the eventual 12 or 16 core bulldozer world, which I think socket G34 will support. Enjoy pwning SR2 fanbois

lulz if you are using AE to render its not going to use your cores very effectively. I was rendering some intense animated stuff on an i5 660 and it wasn't even loading any of the threads over 50%...

enjoy posting satire.

I also do alot of rendering. 12 cores. I'd go intel, although opteron in cpu bandwidth is higher.
