Which system is right for you?

There are so many different models, brands, and revisions of hardware that choosing the right components for your system can be a huge challenge. We've taken the time to perform in-depth analysis to determine exactly what kind of hardware will give you the best possible performance when using a GPU-based rendering engine. This ensures that you will be getting a system that has all the capabilities you need without spending money on components that will not be beneficial.


Dual GPU System

Almost all GPU-based rendering engines are able to utilize multiple video cards to decrease render times, but not everyone needs (or has the budget for) the absolute fastest rendering machine with four GPUs. While physically small, this compact workstation is still able to fit two full-sized video cards which can provide a significant performance advantage over single GPU systems. The exact advantage varies based on the rendering engine used, but using two video cards can be anywhere from 50% faster to twice as fast as using just a single GPU!

While the GPU is the most critical factor when using a GPU-based rendering engine, the CPU options on this system are able to operate at up to 4.0GHz when only using a single core. This means that even though you will be getting terrific rendering performance, this system will also work well extremely well when working in 3D modeling applications such as 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema4D, AutoCAD, or SOLIDWORKS.



Quad GPU System

If you are looking for the fastest possible render times, look no further than our Quad GPU workstation. By utilizing up to four video cards, this system is able to power through renders many times faster than a standard workstation.

While the GPU is the most critical factor when using a GPU-based rendering engine, the CPU options on this system are able to operate at up to 4.0GHz when only using a single core. This means that even though you will be getting terrific rendering performance, this system will also work well extremely well when working in 3D modeling applications such as 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema4D, AutoCAD, or SOLIDWORKS.
