Rhino is my primary software. I’m considering upgrading hardware to better support a different software that is calculation heavy, where multiple cores equate to less run time.
If performance in Rhino were improved then I’d likely go for an even better processor. Based on what I find in the forum I don’t think that will be the case, but it would be good to hear from someone with more experience on the subject.
Currently running Rhino 5. Likely will upgrade to Rhino 6 later this year. I design boats, and my models have gotten large as of late (>800 MB by project completion) to incorporate all of the small detailed models received by suppliers. I don’t do much rendering work. Save time is getting high with these models, and there’s quite a bit of latency when viewing the model as shaded or rendered… will the additional cores assist with this issue? Or is it primarily video card that will improve it?
Specifically I’m looking at the following hardware (processor and dual video cards). I’m all ears to hear anyone’s experience with this challenge.
• NVIDIA® Quadro® P2000 (5 GB GDDR5X, 4 DisplayPort, PCIe x 16) 2nd Graphics
• NVIDIA® Quadro® P2200 Graphics (FH, 5 GB GDDR5X, 4 DisplayPort, PCIe x16)
• Intel® Core™ i9-10940X Processor (3.3 GHz, up to 4.6 GHz w/Boost, 19.25MB Cache, 2933MHz, 14 core, 165W)
