Threadripper
« on: June 30, 2018, 09:50:42 PM »
Hi guys,


I just ordered myself a new PC with AMD's Threadripper 1950X.

The second gen Threadrippers have just been announced, I know, but I can't wait for
that, and I got a pretty good deal on this one.

I've had a lot of problems with my computer lately and haven't been able to
do much work with Terragen cause of blue screens and other crashes, but I hope
this is gonna put me back to work with the stuff I love. I can't wait to test this out.
My current computer is a very old i7. I think it's the first gen, so this is hopefully
going to be an awesome experience.


Cheers,
Terje

Congratulations. I'm sure it'll be a pretty thrilling experience. Can't wait to hear how it works, and see some renders by you again.

Is this one that comes as a whole or will you put it together yourself?

I have chosen the parts myself, but the company I'm ordering from is putting it together for me.

Looking forward to the benchmarks. From what I've seen and heard it should be a very, very good Terragen machine. :)

I hope so. I feel like a little kid just days before Christmas. My old computer was driving me nuts and I think this one is gonna be something else  :)

Nice. I think that's the route I would take next time too.

It's on the task list, but not top priority. Should happen within a couple months though.

I've got one - it's amazing - got 2:12 on Terragen benchmark the other day.

Make sure you've got some decent cooling for it though - it gets very hot if you're overclocking - mine is set to 3.8 ghz and just nips at the max temp for the CPU

Though as the UK is going through an uncommon heatwave at the moment. I've got all the fans maxed out to keep it tidy :-)

That`s quite fast, nice!

I just rendered the old benchmark scene in TG 4.21 again.
It took 4m00s on average. TG 4.01 rendered the scene in 3m42s on average.
Wouldn`t have thought that.

We have a couple of threadripper 1950s here. They do pretty well with Terragen 4.2.
Bang for the buck, that AMD box could really be a win for the home user.

But the intel i9 7980XE machines are eclipsing them in sheer brute CPU force.
The alpine shader screams bloody murder now in 4.2 and the liquid cooled intel chip.
One of the intel boxes however, crashes like all hell on Terragen scenes. It's bizarre.

"Steady wins the race..."  mainly why, when I've had a choice since win NT, that I've gone with AMD
something borrowed,
something Blue.
Ring out the Old.
Bring in the New
