If you need increased rendering performance, this system provides multiple ways to reduce the time it takes to render a scene depending on whether you use a CPU-based engine (which are highly effective at using high core count CPUs) or a GPU-based engine (which are capable of utilizing multiple video cards to increase performance).
If you primarily use a CPU-based rendering engine (Mental Ray, V-Ray, Keyshot, Arnold, etc.), this rendering workstation allows for CPUs with up to 18 cores which can reduce render times by 50-75% compared to our Design & Animation system.
If you are looking for increase GPU-based rendering performance (Iray, V-Ray RT, OctaneRender, FurryBall RT, Redshift, etc.), however, this system is also capable of utilizing dual video cards. The exact performance increase varies based on the engine, but using two GPUs can result in anywhere from a 1.5-2x increase in performance over the single GPU in the Design & Animation system.
