Being a 3D artist may be enjoyable, with fun tasks, creative outlets and a vibrant community to be part of, but it does present several roadblocks to being as great as it could be. The biggest hurdle faced by everyone from animators to lighters and riggers, is that of compute power. As software becomes more capable, the requirements of the hardware it runs on increase, and it can become a game of cat and mouse between the two. Luckily, developments in hardware have taken a giant leap forward, enabling designers to take advantage of all the tools and techniques they use in their projects day-to-day.
In today’s article, let’s take a look at the power and features of one of the most robust CPU currently available which is AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3955WX CPU and how interesting and convenient it is when iRender integrated this powerful tool into your desk to speed up your rendering time.
Multithreading for the people
First, let’s take a look at AMD’s Threadripper PRO CPUs, which deliver massive amounts of computing power, not only through impressively high clock speeds but by offering industry-leading core counts. Software like Autodesk’s 3D Studio Max can take advantage of the single-threaded class-leading performance and multithreading possibilities – massively reducing wait times for high-resolution renders that include attributes such as global illumination, which can be very compute-intensive.
The rapid increase in quality of output that clients now require has exacerbated this intensity too; 4K content is now an industry standard, with 8K gaining a lot of traction also. Workstations, therefore, need to support content creators who work with such high-resolution assets.
A universal approach to computing
Not only do artists see the benefits of the raw processing power on offer here, but also the gains of a more holistic approach to a workstation system. Designers will notice the high core count with these PRO processors, as well as the multiple lanes of PCIe 4.0 available, which clear away problematic bottlenecks often experienced with other systems, allowing for huge increases in connection speed to storage devices, graphics cards, and other add-on devices. A large memory bandwidth helps with transferring large texture sets into RAM, further supporting system resources and allowing creators to work efficiently and quickly. What we do know for a fact is that it’s no good being able to render frames at exceptional speeds if your workstation sits twiddling its thumbs while images are sent and saved to a sluggish hard drive.
It’s not all about the render, though. Waiting for the final stunning images to materialize can be painful, and that applies to many other tasks too – especially the ones that require frame-by-frame updates to effects like cloth and fluid simulations. The Threadripper PRO takes these hits on the chin easily, allowing the digital content creator to stay focused on the worlds they are creating, rather than enduring endless waits while the workstation struggles to keep up. It’s not often that an enhancement in hardware can have such a profound impact on render times, especially considering the current cost we’re seeing for Threadripper PRO-based systems. Those unique, full-spectrum compute capability enables reduced render times, more creative iterations, faster simulation solving, quick assembly rebuilds, and smooth interactivity with 3D assets.
Not only integrating the powerful AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3955WX CPU, iRender also offer a various package with the most powerful graphics cards currently available which is RTX 3090. As we all know, the driving factor for performance in 3D rendering is graphic cards. The faster the better, and you can also use multiple GPUs to further speed up rendering. There are two aspects of a video card that impact render capabilities: the raw speed of the GPU itself and the amount of memory on the card. Video memory will limit how large and complex scenes can be rendered effectively.
The RTX 3090 is the current heavyweight champion of the GPU market. It sports a whopping 24 GBs of super-fast GDDR6X VRAM and has over 10k CUDA cores. It is a beast at gaming and creative tasks (rendering, 3D visualization, visual effects, etc). Incredibly, iRender supports NVLink (Request) which helps you increase the amount of VRAM to 48GB.
So to conclude, iRender is always up to date with the latest card models from NVIDIA such as RTX 3090 with large VRAM 24GB totally satisfying for software that utilizes the power from multi-cards. Besides, we offer clients the powerful processor Intel Xeon W-2245 @ 3.90GHz/AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX @ 3.90GHz and 512 GB – 1 TB SSD – a great option if your project requires a strong super powerful CPU. With these above powerful servers (1/2/4/6 x RTX 3090) and NVLink combined, iRender brings 3D artists unprecedented rendering power, performance, and capability wherever they are. We are proud to shout out that we are one of the most user-friendly and powerful cloud rendering services. Let’s see some rendering tests at iRender:
