New with Blender, hmmm not really ( was working few months on my trashcan which’s drive me crazy a lot :D)
I’m planning to replace the trashcan soon with one of these
- iMac Pro 10core - 64GB - Radeon Pro Vega 64X with 16GB
- Building a powerful PC
But as I’m working a lot with Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X I might stick again with Apple
My question is: if I install windows 10 or even linux as bootcamp on Mac, do I get the CUDA and OpenCL for blender?
One more thing, do I need more than 10 cores for blender with any device I will get?
Thx in advance!
Just OpenCL. Cuda is for Nvidia gpus
Most operations in Blender are single threaded for the time beeing. It can be interesting for rendering though…
Edit: Oh, and welcome to BA!
Hi and welcome to BA.
If it wasn’t for the Mac specific video editing programs you use, I would definitely suggest a PC for blender, and for a fraction of the iMac’s price. If you still can handle video editing tasks with your older Mac, then concider building a pc for everything else.
Thx for answering! its good news for me… thx again
So 10 core is quit good for rendering…thx buddy
Yeah I have to stick with apple for video editing, and the trashcan is almost dead! last month I replace the graphic card witch’s cost close to 500$
For now as I’m almost new to blender the IMP will be good enough for me, bootcamp as windows 10 also will be very helpful as I can use the OpenCL, my main projects with video editing, and just want to avoid clients fights lol
But for sure my next step will be a powerful PC
