My workplace is sorting out a PC build for me to develop our Parametric Design capabilities using Grasshopper/Rhino. This needs to be solid machine. We will be upgrading to Rhino Version 6. The machine will also be used to run Lumion. This is a secondary concern.
I’d be interested to know whether anyone has any suggested modifications to the system the supplier has quoted below (it is based on a Lumion build)? The specs can be taken as indicative of the budget. Additional cost associated with upgrades would need to be significant to be justified.
I deal with complex surfaces and meshes regularly. Processing these efficiently is important. Rhino/Grasshopper is only used for modelling. Lumion is where the rendering happens.
Here are the specs:
Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64-Bit
Intel Core i7-7700K Processor (4.2GHz / 4.5GHz - 8MB Cache) Quad Core
HP 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4-2400 nECC Memory
HP 1,000GB ZTurbo G2 PCIe Solid State Hard Drive
Nvidia GeForce GTX1080 8GB Graphics Card with 2560 CUDA Cores
Any input would be much appreciated.
