Didn't I just say that it was the next thing to production purposes? Read before you respond as I acknowledged it.
I do CAD work myself with Revit and Inventor because I major in Architecture. There is no way that I would ever choose a BD for doing my renderings. There is a reason the visualization computers at my school are all Intel. Tell me the last time you saw a Phenom in a rendering or visualization setting? It may be the "cheap" option for multithreaded performance but a 970 or its Xeon equivalent will definitely pay for itself in the time saved.
As for the fanbios statement, in your case it definitively is. I choose what works to be the best investment, not something that kills it.
When people stop making inaccurate statements, I'll stop correcting them.
