  1. Hi all I want to install Tensorflow gpu on my PC (Windows 10, Ryzen 1700, GTX 1660 Ti) and for this I need to know what the compute capability is of my GPU. This should be listed here, but it seems like they forgot to list the GTX 1660 Ti. Does anyone know what its compute capability might be? Also I tried this a couple years ago (on a different GPU) and I think that by installing CuDNN, I broke my graphics drivers and I could not game anymore until I deleted CuDNN again. Does anyone have experience with this or can anyone confirm if it's possible to install CuDNN while still being able to game on the same PC? Thanks a lot!!
  2. Thanks! Also: is it a good idea to buy GPUs second-hand? And what do I need to pay attention to if I should buy a second-hand GPU?
  3. The amd cards indeed look promising, however I haven't really been following up on them, do you know anyplace I can find comparisons between amd and nvidia gtx/rtx (I don't really know much about quadros either)?
  4. So I currently have a GTX960, it still performs good enough for any games I'm playing (mostly sim racing, but also some higher end RGPs which look fine at 30fps). However I'm getting more into 3D modeling (Blender) and I'm seeing that Blender sometimes starts to lag in scenes with a lot of geometry. I went to look at my stats and it is clearly the GPU which is holding everything back (lots of spikes to 100% while navigating in the viewport). Therefore I'm thinking of upgrading it, but I don't really want to spend a lot of money (>€500) on a graphics card. Is it worth upgrading now? If so, which graphics cards do you recommend (should I go for 20XX/16XX/10XX or even AMD)? Should I wait for any new graphics card that are expected to be announced? Like I said, I don't really want to spend more than €500, but I'm willing to pay more for a card that should be good for a long time (like more than 4 years). Also I can get a discount on my next buy at my local shop, so if there is anything that is really worth the money, please tell me :) Sidenote: my cpu is a Ryzen 7 1700, so it shouldn't be a bottleneck I guess
  5. Ok so for games I would go for the 1700 for the lower price, but what would you advose for the 3d modeling? It's just a hobby, but it may be that I will need some other CAD programs (in the future) for professional use...
  6. A little more about the gaming part: I've got a GTX960 and play mostly open world games (GTA/The Witcher/AC/NFS/...) and a 60fps 2560x1080p monitor...
  7. Well that's the thing, I don't game that much. It's mostly for 3d modeling...
  8. Yes I've seen the video, and yes, the extra 85 euro is important if it's not worth it. I have seen that the i7 is better, but will it be that much better in 3D modeling?
  9. So Intel finally launched the 8th gen processors and now I need some help with making a decision... I'm about to upgrade my PC from i5 4460, 8gb ram and msi z97s mobo to 32 gigs of ram, an asus mobo (depending on cpu of course) and either an i7 8700K or an R7 1700. I mostly do 3D modeling (in 3ds max) and a bit of gaming and I will overclock either one anyway (and I've heard that the 1700 is a good overclocker). My question for you: which one of these processors will be the best choice for me? Also consider the prices of my local hardware shop (where I will buy it eventually): - i7 8700K : €399,- - R7 1700 : €314,- The i7 is a lot more expensive than I thought it would be compared to the 1700, so even if the i7 is better, is it worth the extra €85? Thanks in advance!
  10. I can wait a few weeks, but why (in which scenerio) would I need multicore power rather than singlethread performance or vice versa?
  11. I started a few weeks ago with learning 3DS max, but switched to maya a few days ago, I will now learn to work with maya tos see wich one I prefer, but I think I will stick to Maya.
  12. Hi, I'm currently learning the art of 3D modelling/animating, but my cpu (i5-4460) is way to slow for what I want to do (the rendering of a simple scene with 100 frames took about 1.5 hours). So my questions: - What cpu is best for this kind of jobs? - Do I need a fast core clock or a lot of cores/threads? and most importantly: why? I would love to hear about all the possibilities so I can make a good choice.
  13. I render my frames from time to time to be sure everything looks good, but I've only about 2 weeks ago started with modeling in 3ds max and switched to maya 2 days ago to decide which one I like better (looks like I will stick to maya). So I haven't got a lot of experience or consistent workflow yet...
  14. I have a 960 now, will this be enough? I don't want to change too much of my PC as long as it's not necessary..
  15. Thanks for the quick anwer, but could you please explain why you chose these components? Also, when searching the internet, I find a lot of contradictions about the number of cores, so could you explain your answer please?
