Increasing Rendering Time

Recommended Posts

There are nearly a dozen different Windows 7 variations.

I see what you mean, but the specific version of W7 should make no difference whatsoever.

It seems to make a difference in how you are able to view and modify process information. We still haven't determined what the main problem is. It could easily be an out of physical memory problem, but without seeing the CPU and memory useage it's not realy possible to tell.

At this point any advice is pure speculation.

Advice is advice, not speculation. We have determined that his CPU is very poor in terms of what he is asking it to do. We have determined that it is performing as expected when comparing like for like processors in the Cinebench benchmark list. He has asked for, and has been given, advice regarding a possible upgrade path for either his CPU, or a semi rebuild comprising Motherboard and RAM.

The only thing we are waiting for are details of his current motherboard to determine whether or not there is a compatible CPU which will offer him a significant and worthwhile performance boost.

The only other option would be for him to upload the project which he reported in his original post.

The most interesting thing imo is to clear up if the slow renderspeed is a product of bad scene setup or limited CPU performance. The difference is that the first can possibly resolved without investing anything but a bit of time.

Hence my hoping he uploads the project.

Incidentally, is there a benchmarking scene on the Cafe to download and post comparison render times ? I know we have Cinebench, but a standard real-world scene might be nice to have. That way, someone who might think they have an optimal setup might suddenly discover they are significantly slower than someone with an identical system, and be able to compare notes and possibly speed up their system.

Thats exactly what the CB scene is for, it was select from a large number of scenes for this specific reason.

  • hello, thanks for sending the list through showing all of the different processors available. With regards to the motherboard I'm using. I'm using a ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe if this is right? I did ask amd if the Opteron CPU would be compatible with my current graphics card and motherboard and they said it would be.

    I'm also using Windows 7 ultimate.

    Thanks for the help

    AMD Phenom II X4 945 might be your limit on that board.

    Seriously, just google "<your motherboard> cpu compatibility" and look up the processors on there and cross reference them with the Cinebench results.

    A word of warning. If you just go out and buy one of those, you may find it won't work in your board without a BIOS update.

    I take no responsibility for any CPU you ultimately buy not working, trashing your system, burning down your house or increasing global warming to the point at which all life on earth ceases to exist.

  • okay cheers for that information. I will do some more re-search before I go ahead and buy the CPU. Don't worry I won't hold you responsible for global warming :-)
