Hi, I have tested a few computers rendering a large model, filesize 1 GB. My "Old" computer did it in 1:41, having i7-6700 @3,4 GHz, boost up to 4 GHz. Our new Ryzen computer, having a fabric clocked 1800X, did it in 1:38. Not much extra speed on the render. What I see is that the "symbols"part, prerender, and edge part of the render is not utilizing the processor at all, and it's just the pure rendering part where the processor goes full tilt. I think the i7 is par or maybe a bit faster than the Ryzen in single thread, so it seems most of what we at our company has thought of rendertime is not actually rendering but some kind of single threaded operation. It seems like a i7-7700K overclocked would be a good bet for a faster CPU for rendering viewports for Vectorworks. Does anyone who have a bit more knowledge on this? OJ
We are probably investing in a couple of new computers soon and I'm wondering if the new AMD powerhouse will be a good processor for Vectorworks. We have done some in house tests on render times, and it is pretty clear that multiple cpu cores with as high clock as possible, and ram with high speed and timings have an impact on render time. Will Ryzen be supported? Ryzen have 8 cores and 16 threads, and supports memory up to at least 3200 MHz.
