Bottleneck

Hullo.
Am running a Sketchup renderer,
Kerkythea, on a core2duo cpu
of 2.93mhz, and 4gb ram 667,
xp32.
On Nvidia 8600GT 512, K. took
nearly half an hour to create
th required .xml
Now,
with ATI FirePro V4800 with
DDR5 1gb, it takes 32 minutes.
Is there a solution.
Thanks, Vinci.

  1. Looks like you would benefit the most from a 64bit OS to get rid of XP´s ram limitation and more CPU power.
  2. Thanks.
    Didn't know 64bit optimised CPU performance,
    thought it was all about security...
    Does the DDR2 memory affect the performance of the DDR5 card.
  3. It'll affect the overall bandwidth of the computer, not necessarily just your video card.
  4. Best answer
    What the 64bit OS does is allows you to use more memory, XP 32bit only allows 2GB for applications. The DDR2 has no affect on the video memory.
  5. So why does the 8600GT post better times than the V4800 on the Kerkythea render.
    Is it due to the ATI not being too comfortable with either K. or Sketchup?

    Also, i thought the amt of RAM does not really affect a graphics card from functioning
    optimally. I mean, isn't that why one adds a graphics card in the first place, to get rid
    of the shortcomings of the CPU in handling graphics.

    What would be an ideal 32bit system one could build around an ATI V4800,
    so that the graphics card functions optimally?
    For instance, what processor, an i3, etc, a Quad, a Xeon? what memory? etc...
    It'd be great to know this, as i want to keep the card, and would consider a system
    upgrade in the near future... Thanks.
