CPU Workstation for Keyshot
This tower workstation uses AMD’s Threadripper PRO processors to provide fast CPU-based rendering along with lots of system memory for even the most complex scenes.
Keyshot has always supported CPU-based rendering, and that continues to be the best option for large and complex scenes. The primary reason for this is memory space: video cards are limited by how much onboard memory (VRAM) they have, but the CPU has access to the entirety of system memory – which can easily be an order of magnitude larger.
To get the best performance in this situation, you want a high core count processor – so AMD’s Threadripper line is a perfect fit. This workstation uses that family of CPUs and supports up to 512GB of memory. Technically their Threadripper PRO offers even more cores, but those are also much more expensive and require a larger, costlier system. The video card is much less important, though you still want a decent model in order to run whatever other 3D applications are being used alongside Keyshot. Since multiple video cards are not needed, though, this can all fit within a mid-tower chassis – saving space compared to our larger, GPU-rendering model.
