Rendering

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
does rendering affect the cpu at all? I was building a i7 920 build for general use and found a seller selling a i7 920 that was used to render stuff for a cheap price.

Yes, it does greatly because of i7 920's hyperthreading. You can look at benchmarks online against another processors and it definitely reduces rendering time compared to CPU's without hyperthreading.

I think he means if a life of rendering affects the CPU itself. As in wear and tear.

No, it won't. CPU's run for years at 100% load with no issues, as that's what they are made to do, a CPU will not degrade at stock no matter what load/extent you put on it. If it's been overclocked, then you may want to check what voltage they used and at what clocks, as that can and does cause chip degradation.

Other than that, it'll be fine. The 920 (especially the D0 revision) is a great CPU!
