Personally would love to mess about with Arnold, but have a feeling from what little info I can glean it's all CPU.

Octane must go like the clappers! sic...on four titans...if your workflow supports it (seems to be still somewhat beta)...still real-time rendering with 4xtitans....what a time saver. Even just for pre-vis...

Edit: too bad nvidia sucks for crypto-mining, otherwise they could pay for themselves....provided the whole market for altcoins doesn't implode...tongue.gif

Thanks!

Vray RT has gone a long way...I just upgraded to Vray 3.0 it seems to be getting there in terms of cuda rendering matching CPU production rendering. I've played with the others like Furry Ball and such, they seems to be VFX orientated, my workflow is Arch Visualization, Vray it seems to get better and better with every release. Corona looks promising but it's only CPU that I'm aware of. Redshift 3D looks promising and is coming to 3DS Max smile.gif

What's crypto-mining btw?

there should be some bios' by Skyn3t team. I use them on my 780s and they are safe when you follow the guidelines.

Crypto-mining is the illusion (or scam if you like) of creating alternative currencies in the hope that early adopters will become rich...with the proviso you are in it early enough. Late adopters can suck an egg. However it is pretty friggin' huge! That is for another time tho' (another story as my old man told me going to bed!). Look up the Dutch tulip mania....

Haven't tried Furry Ball, tried briefly Octane, but as it didn't work with vray or Vue or etc etc put me off...needs a completely new database of materials. However the speed isn't bad! Iff you can manage your workflow to fit that with multiple cuda cards, could be a real time-saver. Srry, mostly into vfx, so archviz etc is not my thing...but then for that would think the following should work really well...(Octane, Vray RT, Arion, Indigo etc). I guess it depends on whether you're doing animation or huge (8k) stills. Octane can do animation via a 3rd party plugin. 4xtitans should be more or less realtime rendering in octane would of thought. My beef with octane is yet another materials system, and no compatibility with e.g. Vue, Realflow etc...

Still a hobbyist here, so just my 2 cents worth...sorry iff that what incoherent, back from skiing after 3 hrs sleep! But what skiing! Snow is the next challenge for vfx.....(yes seen the demo!)...

If it wasn't for crypto currency, I wouldn't be able to afford my computer, my house (house hunting in NYC! :D) nor anything else! All Hail The Crypto!

Hey all smile.gif

I have a friend who bought this mobo, Asus Z9PE-D8 WS and soon getting some Xeon E-5 2620 V2 for it.
But the mobo is Rev. 1.04 (That means Bios 0503) and the CPU's is first on the list for Bios 5206.

Do he have a problem first boot?
Can he update bios with thoose CPU's, or without?
Or do he have to buy a third CPU for updating the bios?

Thanks guys biggrin.gif

It will not post on bios 0503 (this is not a guarantee for rev. 1.04 though, it could ship with any BIOS).

You can either buy a BIOS chip with 5206 or later (5304 is recommended). Or get a Sandy Bridge chip to flash the board.

Hello,

though this is my 1st post here i am reading since some month.

I got my way from Asus PC-DL (socket 604, fully modded) to socket 771 E5450 on a SM-X7DAL-E.
Now i am on the Z9PE-D8-WS train smile.gif

I like to tell you that i was able to run:

1x Xeon E5-26xx-v2 (those super cheap chips from that ebay-guy called "upgradem*****") 8 core ES with 1,6Ghz / 2,0Ghz Turbo, 22nm ivy bridge ES - not present @ intel ARK with that specs (!)
on a new Z9PE-D8-WS with 5206 bios. A pair DIDN'T post until i flashed 5304. Since then everything is working fine, also in dual CPU mode.

I am running 8x Kingston KHX-2133-C11D3K4 / 8GX (total 16gb) and they are prime95 and memtest86+ stable at 1600Mhz.
I am unable to get bios posting higher than that, raising busclock >100 results in prime95 unstable...

Cool thread guys smile.gif


Edit: Could anyone tell me where my mobo-rev is printed on the board?

So I have about 45 days of non-stop folding w/ my Z9PE-D8 WS. Most stable system I have ever built. This is even w/ the tops of all the heatsinks plasti-dipped. They don't even get warm. tongue.gif
