My employee has a Lenovo P520 with these specs :
- Xeon E5-1620v4 (4 cores/8 threads, 3.5 GHz - 3.8 GHz)
- 32 go DDR4
- Quadro M2000 (770 CUDA Cores, 4 go)
- 490W power supply
She uses Rhino 6 with Vray (GPU rendering) for architectural modelling.
The performance on Rhino is pretty bad since I bought the PC ~2.5 years ago ; the pc lags a lot when rendering on GPU, the real-time view has a OK performance only, the rendering is slow, …
We tried the GTX 1650 Super (from another pc) and the performance is WAY better in a lot of ways, but I want more. I particularly find the CPU frequencies quite low compared with today’s standards.
So I have 2 options :
GPU upgrade to a RTX 2070 Super (the price is ok) or RTX 2080 Super (only if it’s really worth it…). About 800-1100 $CAN.
A new custom built pc with 32 go ram and the same GPU as option a. For the CPU I am hesitant between a i7-9700k (539$CAN), Ryzen 7 3800X (480$CAN) or i7-10700k (630$CAN). I know it’s the single core performance that matters… It would be about 2200 - 2400$CAN.
Thanks a lot for any suggestions
