Hello guys, I recently built a pc for a friend who uses Rhino to run Matrix. The specs are as follows
Geforce GTX 970 4GB
32 GB DDR4
256GB Sandisk SSD
I really don’t know much about Rhino, or Matrix, but I’ve built plenty of computers in the past, for CAD and Gaming use.
I went by the Rhino recommended specs, which this setup surpasses in every aspect. I usally like to stress out a pc to see how far it can be pushed, so I told my friend to use Matrix to do an intense task. I believe he set 1000 stones into the project, and this caused the program to stop responding. We waited a few minutes and nothing. Meanwhile, I was able to open up Firefox, watch a Youtube, download and install a small program, all without any lag. I checked the task manager and the memory was at 3GB (out of 32GB) and the cpu at 10%… So I’m assuming the video card is the bottleneck. I’m thinking the video card drivers, or maybe settings that need to be changed within Rhino/Matrix… I’ve optimized setting in other programs ( After Effects/ Premiere) to use the Video card and the changes have been night and day. I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction, thanks!
