One of the core values of Puget Systems is transparencyWe detest hype in the midst of an industry that is full of it. Our mission is to provide the highest quality hardware and consultation services to our customers, and to back up our decisions by freely sharing what we've learned along the way. To earn a place in our product line, a computer component undergoes rigorous testing. We apply the results of our testing, along with our years of experience in learning reliability trends and manufacturer characteristics, to make prudent decisions about what we can put our name behind, whether that's an individual part or an entire computer. With the following articles, we are writing up the results of these internal processes and discussions, and taking them public. We feel we can take this on with a unique perspective as we evaluate each topic with the experience, resources, and objectivity of a system builder. If there is a topic you'd like us to write about, email us at !
PhotoScan makes heavy use of both the central processors (CPUs) in a computer and the video cards (GPUs) to run many of the calculations involved in turning still images into a 3D model or map. Intel's new Xeon Scalable processors offer configurations with dozens of CPU cores, as well as the ability to support multiple GPUs - so let's see how they perform in PhotoScan.
Intel has launched their new Xeon Scalable processor series, with very high core counts and multi-CPU configurations. How do they stack up to single-socket workstations using other Intel and AMD processors when rendering in V-Ray?
"Mac or PC?" - the age-old question among computer enthusiasts. How fast are Apple and PC workstations when rendering in V-Ray? And which offers a better value?
"Mac or PC?" - the age-old question among computer enthusiasts. How do Apple and PC workstations compare for content creation and rendering in Cinema 4D?
Intel has launched their new Xeon Scalable processor series, with very high core counts when used in dual CPU configurations. How do they stack up to single-socket workstations using other Intel and AMD processors in Cinema 4D?
Intel has long been the performance king for After Effects, but AMDs new 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs have shown some great performance gains. Is it enough to let AMD overtake Intel?
AMD has made great improvements with the new 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs that really closes the gap between AMD and Intel for Photoshop users. But is it enough to put them above Intel's 8th Gen CPUs?
After Effects is a tricky application when it comes to choosing a CPU as there are many factors that come into play. Not only is there raw rendering performance, but the new integration with Cinema4D and even the amount of system RAM you need all play a role in determining what CPU is the ideal choice for your workflow.
The initial release of Lightroom Classic CC gave us some great performance gains, but the Lightroom team is not done yet. With the new 7.2 update, we once again get some terrific performance improvements, this time with an emphasis on improved multi-core performance using high core count CPUs in a number of tasks.
Dassault Systemes launched the initial version of SOLIDWORKS 2018 (SP0.1) late last year, but with the recent release of SP1 we expect that customers will soon be using it in production environments. In preparation for that, we have tested the field of current Intel Core i7 and i9 processors to see how they stack up in SW 2018. We hadn't yet had a chance to test AMD's Threadripper processors in SOLIDWORKS either, so they are also included in this round of benchmarks.
Pix4D is an advanced photogrammetry application, suited to wide range of uses, with a focus on handling images captured by drone cameras. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes / textures is time consuming, so we have tested multiple projects across a wide range of CPUs to see what hardware performs the best.
With Lightroom Classic CC, Adobe is advertising performance improvements for a number of tasks including importing, generating smart previews, scrolling through images, and much more. In this article we will be running our Lightroom benchmark suite to see if Classic CC is actually faster than CC 2015.
The latest Core processors from Intel have launched: the 8th generation of this series, code named "Coffee Lake". This brings with it the first six-core CPUs in Intel's mainstream processor line, so we are taking a look at how they perform in Solidworks 2017. For comparison, we also have results from our previous recommendation for modeling and CAD: the Core i7 7700K "Kaby Lake" chip.
Alongside a small frequency bump, the new Coffee Lake-S 8th Gen CPUs from Intel have also received a 50-100% increase in core count. On paper, this makes the new Core i7 8700K, i5 8600K, i3 8350K, and other 8th Gen CPUs much more powerful than their predecessors, but will this translate to improved performance for real-world Premiere Pro workloads?
Intel has launched their 8th generation of Core processors, code named "Coffee Lake". This includes the first step beyond quad-core CPUs for Intel's mainstream processor line. We are taking a look at how these new CPUs perform in Autodesk Revit 2018, compared to the previous 7th generation "Kaby Lake" Core i7 7700K and a couple of AMD's Ryzen 7 chips.
For years, After Effects has struggled to utilize high CPU core counts to the point that a quad core CPU was the best you could get for raw performance. The new Coffee Lake-S 8th Gen CPUs from Intel have seen an increase in core count, but the question is whether After Effects will actually be able to make use of them.
Lightroom contains a few tasks that can utilize a higher number of CPU cores, but much of the application can only take advantage of a couple of cores. With the new Coffee Lake 8th Gen CPUs seeing an increase in core count, will Lightroom see a significant benefit?
With two more cores over the previous generation, the new Coffee Lake 8th Gen CPUs perform extremely well in certain applications. However, Photoshop has historically struggled with higher core counts so will the new CPUs actually be any faster?
