GPU Rendering Ready For Prime Time?

GPU rendering has been slowly advancing since arriving on the scene several years ago. While the technology can significantly redude render times, the widespread use of GPU-accelerated engines for final frame production rendering has yet to materialize. In this article, we'll take a look at how the landscape is set to change with Chaos Group's V-Ray 3.0 beta. We'll also talk about the recent launch of BOXX's unique GPU Edition workstations that can get you rendering faster than you’ve ever imagined.

Don't Be A Bottleneck Villain

BOXX exists to serve very specific markets just like yours. Over the past 15 years, we have become experts in addressing the pain points of our customers. Complicated workflows are the norm when it comes to digital content creation, architectural design, engineering, simulation, and product visualization. A "one size fits all" approach to IT, and particularly the hardware chosen to run these applications, will more than likely lead to lost productivity and ultimately, a negative impact on your bottom line.

High Frequency and Redundant Cores

In computing, common sense says that the more CPUs you have at your disposal, the faster your machine will complete its tasks and the more productive you will be. In reality, the ability of a software application to take advantage of multiple CPU cores is dictated by whether the application is single threaded or multi-threaded. Most of you are familiar with this concept, but we think it’s worth digging a little deeper into how this affects CAD applications.
