TITAN Upgrade? - Page 2

Are you going to acknowledge and respond to what hammong said? This is my 3rd time trying to redirect your attention to his post.

Again, according to him, you don't need to make any kind of a GPU upgrade.

 

By the way, just in case you decide to get that CPU and motherboard, it does not support DDR4 memory.

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. .

So youre saying that alot the rendering takes on the CPU. I have the sandy bridge right now so by just upgrading the CPU I would get alot more rendering performance on my rig right now?

Yes, I did already

At home I have my personal computer which takes 1 hour to render the file.

At work I have an iMac which takes 2 hours to render the same file.

So, they want me to set up a machine that will lower the rendering time.

I have budget of 2.5k to build to best rendering machine that can render 10 mins of video in less than 30 minutes.


That is why i'm asking. (not taking my home machine apart)

Pretty much, yes.

Depending on your video project, could be not "a lot" of rendering takes place on the CPU, but "all" of the rendering takes place on the CPU.

You haven't given us any specifics about what the video sequence involves, if there is 3D rendering / ray tracing, etc. If there is, then GPU makes a difference. If there isn't, then it does not.

$2500 will afford you a top of the line 5960X rendering beast (with a modest GPU). That's what I'd do. That 4790K you have in the Partpicker is only about 35% faster rendering than a Sandybridge. You really need more cores to get the job done faster.

What Mobo/CPU would you recommend?

Here are my recommendations:

ASUS X99-A/USB 3.1:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132516&cm_re=ASUS_X99A-_-13-132-516-_-Product

Intel i7-5960X:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117404&cm_re=Intel_5960X-_-19-117-404-_-Product

Crucial Ballistix DDR4-2400 32GB 4-DIMM KIT:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148867&cm_re=Crucial_Ballistix_DDR4-_-20-148-867-_-Product


You can use whatever case, power supply, GPU, SSD/HDD arrangement you prefer. If you need MORE power than a 5960X, you could always go with a dual processor motherboard with a pair of Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 processors at 10 cores/20 threads each, but you'd need to quadruple your budget. =)

Thanks! I was able to go those parts and the rest of the stuff with in my budget! Thank you again.
