Postby Virgorival » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:27 am

I haven't seen anyone discusing it and i would love to build me a Threadripper Rig for my self
16cores 32threads on One chip

I'd love to know what i'm getting my self into before i go and dump nearly 2grand on a rig

Hi !

For rendering with Luxcore 2X vega 64 are a better choice. their are faster than threadripper and their can use cpu DDR4 memory to render heaviest 3d project.
i7 6700k + 32 Gb DDR4 + 2X R9 390 sapphir nitro.

over a month later i choose to come back to look this thread over haha

well, as a Daz Studio/Reality user

using the OpenCL modes (I'm assuming these are the luxcore?) have been nothing but a huge disappointment, but then that might be the CPU and GPU i'm using

frankly I have just been sticking with CPU only renders

But i have been totally out of the loop for what is happening with Luxrender and Daz Studio since they integrated IRay into it

I figure with the current set up i have, just upgrading my rig for more core counts in a threadripper would be A way to go

I've got a Ryzen 7 1800X running Mint 18.3 which replaced a FX8350

Also an i7 6770K on Mint 17.3 both at stock clocks. The Ryzen is just over 80% faster than the i7.

I can't remember how much faster the i7 was than the FX8350.

I did have to return the original Ryzen as it was segfaulting within 10 minutes of starting a render.
The replacement can still stop the rendering process but not as often.
I have seen some faults on the i7 as well but not as often.
