Was wondering if anyone could give any insight into why I’m getting such a dramatic difference in render speeds between 2 of my PC’s?
The scene I’m rendering is Earth and uses a few 16k textures and a subsurf modifier with displace on it, nothing fancy really. But for some reason the same scene is rendering much much slower on my other PC’s, here are their specs.
All run Win 7 64 bit and have similar ram speed.
Intel i7 950 3.07ghz, 12gb ram - renders scene in 01.24
AMD FX-8150 8 core 3.60ghz, 8gb ram - renders scene in 13.43!!!
I also have an AMD 6 core @ 3.80ghz with 8gb ram which also renders this scene stupidly slow…
I can’t for the life of me think why there is such a difference with the Intel and AMD set ups. They have similar Cinebench scores and when I’ve used them before they have been a similar speed to my Intel PC. The only thing I can think of is the difference in ram, 12gb versus 8gb? Perhaps something to do with the large 16k textures?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
