So one of my guilty pleasures while working in Rhino is to take a break and render out a nice progress shot. This rendering does take some time, and I’d like to speed it up a bit. Also now that my projects are getting a bit bigger, I noticed a bit of slowdown while moving around the 3D view and wouldn’t mind addressing that as well.
I’m using Rhino 6 with an Intel Core i5-8400 Coffee Lake 6-Core 2.8 GHz and just using it’s onboard graphics (UHD 630 IGP). I’m looking at second hand graphics cards around $80 - Nvidia 950 GTX or AMD R7 370. I know there’s a lot better cards out there, but thought I could get some bang for the buck with a bit of money that I can afford at this time.
Will I see faster render times in Rhino 6 if I add a graphics card? Also is there any big difference between the R7 and 950 in terms of compatibility with Rhino?
