New machine and card using Blender - Page 2

Ok thanks brucethemoose, so that link is incorrect?

And yeah Cycles is dependant on GPU more than CPU that's why I'm concentrating so much on the Titan Black for a new machine.

The link is correct, there might be a little confusion here (probably on my part biggrin.gif).

This is the 2010/pre 2012 Mac Pro. Traditional tower, dual-processor if you want, upgrade-able GPU.







This is the new one, which I humerously refer to as the "trash can" (I mean it LOOKS like a freaking trash can), and it seems to use 2 proprietary GPUs.




The old Mac Pro can take a Titan Black, I don't think the new one can. Does your supplier carry the old or new one?



EDIT: If Cycles is GPU heavy, the Dell is probably overkill.

I work for a uni and the IT guys order the new machines for us, but they were recommending the new trash can Mac Pro but wasnt sure the Titan Black could fit in it. And so that link got me intrigued.

Thanks PontiacGTX, yeah unfortunately I think they go straight through Dell, and if I'm using Cycles then that card is no use to me.
