Best desktop for 3d work and rendering

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Should i go for a dektop with i9 9900k and rtx 2080 for 2800 $or go for a desktop with xeon E5_2640v4 with quadro p4000 for a price of 4000$ 

The i9 has a higher base frequency with a higher boost compared to the xeon who has more cores 

I personaly think that the rtx has a better performance 

What do you think

The answer depends significantly on what software you use.

3dsmax and vray render,  zbrush, photoshop adobe after effect and premiere

What is stopping you from looking at Threadripper machines in this price range? In my experience with Autodesk software (I used mental ray and Maya, so a bit different perhaps.) In terms of rendering, effective cores and core speeds are going to cut those render times. I haven't ever worked with a machine in this price range outside of college, so this is all theoretical on my end...

If ECC is important, I would probably go with a 1950x, it's a good price and it offers quad channel memory, if you need good single thread performance as well, I'd probably go with a 7980xe if you are liquid enough, or anything under that area, i.e 7820x+

 

But yeah i agree the TR machine is going to be the best bang for the buck but won't be the best

But if you had to choose between the 2 options i have woch one would you go for?

Personally, I would go for a 7980/7920x because i primarily game with some 3d rendering on the side, When delidded and with proper cooling they can technically still get to 5ghz which would be EXTREMELY inefficent compared to lower voltages or threadripper. but would cut render times on an equally threaded processor from AMD but they are both terrible value. 

 

It really just depends on budget, because the 2700x is the value king for production, as it offers 8c/16t and is around 15%-20% slower than the 9900k but at $200 cheaper. 

 

The problem i have with threadripper is that an i3 8350k will beat it in most games. making threadripper bad for an all around machine.

 

I'm not saying it can't game. It just wouldn't be as good as even most low-end options.

 

I guess TR if you are going to be doing only work on this machine

and i9 79xxx or 9900k if you are going to be gaming too.

 

Also if you need ECC then TR destroys xeon's

I used all the software except for Zbrush.

 

I used mainly i7s with 32 gbs ram. If I was not retired I would just add more ram to the systems I have now.

 

For 3D work I always used 2 computers. One as a rendering box and one for editing

Autodesk aloud me to have the license on 2 computers so there was no reason not to take advantage of it. This also allowed me to play games on my editing computer while the other rendered. If I needed both to meet a deadline it was the Xbox for me. 

 

I really like the i9 9900k. With the right motherboard and cooler they run cool even at 5gzs on all cores. With the wrong motherboard and cooler they are a bit of a disaster.

The mother board is msi mpg z390 gaming plus. Amd the cougar fan case hpb 120 vortex rgb kit x3 fan and msi cooler core frozr l what do you think about that?
