More about xeon 2620 intel core 3930k rendering graphics
  1. The 3930K, they both run on the same architecture but the 3930K is clocked 1ghz higher.
  2. so do you think i7 is better then xeon in rendering
  3. Yes.
  4. thanks ..can you explain me how overclocking and higher GHZ works in rendering ...
  5. Doesn't a good GPU help aswell?
  6. An example:
    If a cpu can render say a 3d movie in 10 min at a stock of 3ghz.

    We bump that 3ghz up to 4ghz the 3d movie can be rendered in 7 min.
  7. ^^ depends if his software can support GPU acceleration.
  8. I´m building a computer mainly for 3D rendering, So far I´ve come up with

    Cooler master CM 690 II plus (Mid Tower) 3 Fan

    Cpu Fan :- Cooler master Hyper 412 Slim or water cooler

    Power supely :- Cooler master Gx 750 w

    Cpu :- 1) Intel® Core™ i7-3930K Processor (12M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz)
    2) Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2620 (15M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 7.20 GT/s Intel® QPI)

    Mother board :- 1)Intel DX79SR or DX79SI (Support I7,Xeon E5 family )

    Graphic card:- nvidia quadro 600

    Harddisk :- 2TB WD,

    Ram :- 16 GB Kingston 1600Mhz (EPC)

    i dont know much more about GPU rendering..is it work for max 2010 and maya 2012
  10. You don't need a 750w, a good 520w would be the best choice. How about a seasonic?
  11. could you give us an update? What did you end up buying , and how were you satisfied !

    I am having the same question, should I go with Xeon for stability or i7 for speed ?! It seems that most professional workstation rigs go with Xeon!
