For Screen Rendering (OpenGL) you will need a fast graphics card (GPU)


For Renderworks Rendering (RW) you will need a fast Processor (CPU) with

high frequency and many cores.

(look for a good result in Cinebench multi core)



If it is a current nMac Pro, the choice isn't that big (6-12 cores).

If you are willing to spend more money and can wait another 4-6 months,

coming iMac Pro may be worth a look at. You can have up to 18 fast Xeon cores.


Not sure if I want to know its price though ....
