we need help to renew our workstations. We actually work with Rhino 4 and vray on 4 old PC powered with i7 870 2.9 GHz, 8gb RAM and GeForce GTS 270. For our normal workflow are still good but for our “heavy” projects (4-500 Mb model files) a little bit less…
What we would like to do?
- 3d modelling
- smooth 3d visualization (render viewport with Vray)
- Renders with Vray 2.0
- I really would like to have RT renders on Vray 2.0 (GPU based render)
- photoshop (light use)
- 2d drawing with Microstation (but we will migrate to Autocad LT)
Now the big question is: is it worth to buy a proper workstation (Xenon and Quadro) or it’s better an i7 + dual GPU?
The budget should be below 2500-3000€.
Any help will be really appreciated…
Thank you all, ciao
