At Puget Systems, we do a LOT of testing. We believe that computers should be a pleasure to purchase and own. They should get your work done, and not be a hindrance. To do that, they need to be the right hardware for the job.
Most programs and plug-ins for real-time visualization need one powerful video card backed up by a high-speed processor. The video card, or GPU, does the bulk of the work – so the CPU just needs to be fast and not cause a bottleneck. Such CPUs are also ideal for a lot of design and architecture applications, which is a perfect overlap to have in this type of workstation. On the other hand, ray-traced rendering programs tend to want either a high core count CPU or multiple, powerful graphics cards. GPU-based rendering tends to be faster overall, while CPU-based rendering can work on more complex scenes since system RAM can be a lot larger in capacity than VRAM on a video card. We have recommendations for each of these types of systems among the applications below.
If you don’t see your specific design software listed, or have questions about what hardware your unique situation needs, please reach out to our expert consultants for more tailored guidance or a custom engineering visualization workstation quote.
