Would love to see the Threadripper 1900X make an appearance in your awesome articles! The high base clock combined with PCIE lanes should definitely serve the Puget Systems target audience! Keep up the good work!

We've just added the 1900X to our system options. I don't know that we'll be doing much testing on it right away, but it should be a good option for systems where the CPU isn't the primary focus... like GPU rendering.

Hi, first of all thank you for your support and feedback,

I was wondering if I can plug 3 rtx 2070 to render with Vray RT. I've read that it doesen't matter that this graphic cards don't support SLi neither NVlink because Vray doesen't use this technology.

Yes, you can certainly use three RTX 2070 cards for rendering with V-Ray RT (also called V-Ray Next GPU in newer versions). However, a couple things to be aware of:

- While V-Ray currently doesn't support NVLink, at least as of the current 1.0.8 version of their benchmark, it may in the future. Since the RTX 2070 doesn't have that capability, you would miss out on any additional functionality or performance it may bring in the future. However, there is also no 3-way NVLink, so you would need either 2 or 4 cards with support for that feature if you ever wanted to use it. If you are concerned about that, consider a pair of RTX 2080 or 2080 Ti cards instead of the 3 x 2070s.

- If you are going to have more than 2 video cards in a single computer, it is likely that at least two of them will end up being right next to each other. We have found that dual-fan video cards have trouble with cooling in that close of quarters, so I would strongly recommend getting cards with single fans that exhaust all their hot air out the back of the computer.

thank you so much for your support. Could be better to have a single titan rtx 24 gb than two rtx 2080 ti?

Only if you are dealing with scenes that cannot fit in the 2080 Ti's 11GB of VRAM... and even thent hen, if you are using a render engine that doesn't support out of core memory. Otherwise, the two GPUs are just a lot faster together than a single Titan RTX from the benchmarks I've seen so far.
