This article will cover if transiting over to a Linux operating system would be a good option for you. We want to help arm you with some foundational information regarding Linux and provide an understand about what to expect before making a transition.
There are a number of new features coming with the 1909 update even though they are technically already built into the current version of Windows. Microsoft is 'unlocking' them with the 1909 update and you should be excited!
For CPU-based rendering engines, the processor is by far the most important hardware choice when building or buying a workstation. What is the best choice among all the new CPUs that were launched in 2019, though? We've tested a wide range of chips so that we can provide that answer to you, so read on to find out!
Picking the processor, or CPU, is one of the most important decisions when building or buying a workstation - but there are dozens of options to pick from at any given point, with varying specifications and price points, so making the right choice isn't always clear-cut. We've tested all of the latest processors from Intel and AMD across three popular photogrammetry applications to help you know what the best choice is for your next system.
The latest version of DaVinci Resolve (16.1.2) includes an update to the latest RED SDK which is supposed to greatly improve performance when working with R3D files in DaVinci Resolve. But exactly how much of an impact does this make in the real world? (Hint: it is a lot!)
It's the end of the 2010's and start of 2020's. Time to reflect ...
A recent update (likely 1903) has moderately increased security for accessing network and external drives. The Windows credentials manager controls the access and is easily edited to solve the problem.
In this 45 minute webinar, Matt Bach will go over all the individual parts that go into a workstation, explaining what each does and how Lightroom Classic uses them. We will help you separate fact from fiction and make you aware of "marketing buzzwords" that are either misleading or flat-out lies.
Updated 12/11/2019. Do you use After Effects with multiprocessing plugins or homemade scripts like BG Renderer Max or RenderGarden to improve rendering performance? Want to see how your system stacks up to the latest hardware? Download and run the AERender benchmark that we use in our internal testing!
The Super Computing conference annual US counterpart is always a great meeting. It's a chance to see the trend and get sentiment for the highest performance end of computing. I have written up a few observations and provided a few interesting links for SC19.
How To Use MKL with AMD Ryzen and Threadripper CPU's (Effectively) for Python Numpy (And Other Applications)
In this post I'm going to show you a simple way to significantly speedup Python numpy compute performance on AMD CPU's when using Anaconda Python.
Your CPU is one of the most important parts in your workstation, but picking which CPU to use can be an overwhelming task with literally hundreds of options to choose from. In this post, we will be discussing what the best CPU is to use for a video editing workstation while keeping things at a relatively high level so that it can help answer the question for anyone - regardless on how much they keep up with the latest tech.

AMD Threadripper 3970x 32-core! ...The, third new AMD processor I've had the pleasure of trying recently. I'm running it through the same double precision floating point performance tests as the recently tested Ryzen processors, Linpack and NAMD.
While our hardware articles are extremely helpful in helping you pick the right CPU for your workflow, they only look at a single application and are often more technical than many readers may want. In this post, we will be discussing what the best CPU is to use for a photography workstation while keeping things at a relatively high level so that it can help answer the question for anyone - regardless on how much they keep up with the latest tech.
Intel and AMD have both launched new lines of high-end desktop processors, with different approaches to increasing value. AMD's 3rd Gen Threadripper CPUs are based on a newer microarchitecture, bringing better performance for around the same price as previous models. Intel, on the other hand, focused on reducing price while still using the same underlying technology as their last series. We tested both to see which approach gives the best results in Agisoft Metashape.
Intel launched an update to its Core X series, bringing minor performance improvements along with massive price cuts. Read on for more specs and links to articles about how Core X-10000 CPUs handle many popular applications.
