TITAN Upgrade?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I am planning on building a video editing/ rendering rig.

Right now I am working with EVGA GeForce GTX760 FTW which renders my After Effects 10 minute project with full HD in 59 minutes.

Want to bring rendering time down to 30 minute or less than 10 if possible.

Building a new machine and SLI'ing these two cards
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121724

Do you think these two cards combined would do the job? If so, what other components do you would improve the performance of the cards?

Motherboard, RAM and CPU....

The Corsair TX650 doesn't have enough power for that. Besides, two GTX 980s would probably beat two Titans and consume less power doing it. Or if you can afford it, two GTX 980 Ti's.

 

You'd probably also want to upgrade to something like an i7-3770K. Or, just upgrade all the way to an i7-6700K. Of course, the 6700K would require a new motherboard and new memory. heh

I wouldn't be using this PSU


So either this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487140
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487079

Would the rendering speed be lower than 30 minutes?

Thanks for the response

Which PSU would you be using?

Do you think I need more juice?

Before you jump in with both feet, you need to be aware that After Effects only uses CUDA for a very small number of tasks, specifically 3D rendering / ray-trace plugins. For converting HD raw video to compressed video, transition rendering, frame size adjustments, etc., it's all done on on the CPU - and that's where you need to focus your efforts.

First thing I'd look at is an older X79/3930K or 4930K if you're on a budget, or a X99/5820K or 5930K if you have more cash to spend. The hex core (12 threads) CPUs and faster memory architecture are made for this kind of processing load.

Another thing to look at is your storage workflow. You should be reading and writing to different devices. NEVER render with your source and output streams on the same HDD. You'd be OK using a SSD for input and output streams, but will still get better performance using two devices.

You'd be surprised how little the GPU really matters with After Effects. There are plenty of production houses out there running on GeForge 200 era boards with great success - many generations old. .

On paper, that does have enough power, but those PSUs are known to have problems. I'd avoid them. Using PCPartPicker.com, I found this:

 

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220gs0850v1

 

This particular model of the SuperNOVA GS series is an extremely high-end PSU: the SeaSonic X-Series, but the "KM3" version!

 

You could spend just a little more though and get the best of the best in the 850W EVGA G2: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr It's a Super Flower Leadex, which is the pinnacle of quality right now. Its power delivery is the most stable and the most accurate of any other PSU series on the market. That's not to say that the KM3 isn't stable and accurate (it's extremely stable and accurate), but still.

 

Anyway, I admit that I don't know what the rendering performance would be. I'm just going by comparisons I've seen that show the Titan being beaten by these cards - and even an overclocked GTX 780. Like the one in my sig rig: this overclock beats a Titan at stock.

Okay thanks... The PSU I have on my sig is outdated I haven't updated it. I do have a supernova 1200.

This editing build is for my job so i'm kinda on a budget but not a firm one yet.

Ill add the supernova 850 to my list.

Wait... if you already have the 1200W EVGA SuperNOVA P2, then why not use it? Sure, the 850W EVGA SuperNOVA GS and G2 units are very high-end, but I wouldn't buy a new PSU if I had the 1200W P2. That's another Super Flower Leadex.

 

Also, according to hammong, you don't have to make any kind of a GPU upgrade. So, the TX650 would still be way more than good enough.
