Element 3D is a fantastic plugin but extremely hamstrung by it's GPU only processing. It does not support MP by design. Caused some big slow downs in render times for my current project. Big comp with lots of subcomps, HD, and 4K layers...add Element and now you have to process all of that on one core. Best to probably pre-render the comp when possible sans the elements that have to interact with Element. AE....old code....with lots of tacked on expansions and revisions.

I haven't used element3d yet, but for larger projects, is there any time saving over the traditional route of comping in layers (matchmove-export to 3d program-export various layers-comp back into ae or nuke or fusion...)`? If element slows the render to a crawl? I must confess I often just 'eyeball it' once in say max, and use the tracking points as a general reference when combining live action and cg...and eyeball it again when back in after effects. But then I'm more of a hobbyist (no 4k camera here yet!)....tongue.gif

Normally, if your application is stressing all cores with more than, say, 90% of C0 residency, the EIST should keep all cores at the highest P state possible (which is, in most cases, the highest turbo state for workstation systems).

However, if the workload is fluctuating, sometimes EIST is too aggressive with clocking-down, and you could get better results by forcing the cores to the highest P state.

This is not recommended to be done all of the time, because the power consumption will go up by 10-20W. But for short periods, it can help in specific workloads.

Normally, it is also possible to tune Windows promotion/demotion thresholds for P-state transitions, but I prefer ThrottleStop.

Btw, for people who want to learn more about Windows CPU power management configuration options see this:

Like I said, I prefer ThrottleStop - but for server admins, Windows own configuration has advantages since it is part of the system policy.

@edit - double post, sorry

My friend has a pair of 2648L CPUs and is now wondering if they will work in the Z9PE-D8 WS even though it is not on the cpu support list. However, on various ebay auctions it is listed as 2648L/2650, which makes us think it might work. It is an 'embedded' cpu so we aren't too hopeful, anyone know?

Thanks

I appreciate the insight and the resource. I've been looking for understanding on this for quite some time, and somewhat unsuccessfully.

Getting antsy for the Ivy EPs to come out....got everything else ready to go except memory and CPUs

Has anybody had any luck running newer PCI-E 3.0 GPUs on this board?  Does the newer BIOS revisions fix the issues I read about early on?  I'm just using the on-board VGA header for display right now, but was wondering what to expect if I wanted to put my 780, or 7970 on this board, I'm running a really old bios from 4/12 IIRC.

Running 7 Titans no problem. 3 internal, 4 in PCI-E breakout box.

Thanks!  Which BIOS rev are you on?  What OS?

Thread Starter 

psyq said that his B0 chips ran along with a Titan. Just no PCI-e 3.0 speeds. Now he has 2697s and latest BIOS (one after 5004 I believe) and his Titan runs at 3.0.

 

Since you have C0, I think you should just go for the latest if you want 3.0 speeds. Otherwise, just test the cards :p
