This topic is archival. More recent information can be found on the following links:

    
The best processor for 3d rendering: June 2015
    
The best processor for working with computer graphics: June 2015
    
The best video card for 3ds Max: June 2015


Very often, computer graphics specialists are faced with the problem of choosing the optimal computer configuration for their needs. We are asked a regular question, and which one to choose a computer for 3ds Max? That's why in this publication we decided to analyze the most successful PC assemblies, which are the best choice for the CG specialist. In particular, we have focused on the description of the computer for the CPU rendering, since from the workstation, such a computer differs only in a video card. As practice shows, with a new Nitrous viewport engine in 3ds Max, any modern video card will work perfectly in the price range from 80 to 120 USD. Therefore, you can choose it yourself. As for the CPU versus GPU rendering, RenderStuff specializes specifically in CPU rendering in V-Ray and the main emphasis is on the total system performance for building the so-called. Render-node.

For the sake of simplicity of choice by non-specialists in computer hardware, the overclocking issue is deliberately missed: those who understand in overclocking can make appropriate adjustments to the PC configuration they purchase by themselves. In addition, the assemblies below do not take into account the cost of the case, because This is a very individual thing and absolutely does not affect the performance of the computer in any way. Motherboards, if possible, have minimal physical dimensions and support video output directly, without a discrete (separate) video card. As for RAM, for all the needs of 3d rendering, 8 Gb of RAM is enough. More memory is needed only for better responsiveness in Windows on the workstation, more RAM does not affect the rendering speed directly, and you can independently determine it based on the principle "the more - the better", and, of course, the size of your wallet.

Budget Render-node

Do you have a limited budget? Want to finally try yourself as a render farmer? You do not need to wait for the accumulation of a sky-high sum to buy a modern powerful render-horse, there are quite inexpensive options:

    
1 st place: The most affordable FX-8350
    
2 nd place: Record of coldness i7-3770
    
3 place: Energy-saving i7-4770

Value for money

Why waste money? Need a large render-farm, you want to cleverly invest money? If you treat 3d visualization as a business, then only a dry, unbiased calculation of efficiency is meaningful. Assemblies of this category are the most rational acquisition for rendering:

    
1 place: Head of economy FX-8350
    
2 place: Modern leader i7-4770
    
3 place: Big Brother i7-3770

Elite station wagon CG

If for you CG - not only work, but the whole life, you treat it as a hobby, then, beyond any doubt, you need only the best. You, as a successful specialist, can afford not to compromise, having received a super-productive render-node in one system and the most comfortable workstation in everyday use:

    
1 place: Top of the top i7-3930K
    
2 place: Single-threaded monster i7-4770
    
3 place: Old, but the remote i7-3770



Without superfluous digressions from a theme, we will pass to a reality (if you, of course, of it any more did not make).


Configuration up to $ 425

The most budgetary and (more importantly) the most efficient configuration for distribution and network rendering. AMD has been releasing affordable processors for high-performance desktop PCs for a year now. Leadership price / performance as always for AMD, both in other and high power consumption.

Pluses:

    
Low total price
    
Leader in price / performance ratio

Disadvantages:

    
Not very high total capacity
    
Poor performance for single-threaded processes, as a consequence - the inability to convert to a workstation, where this is the most important parameter.
    
Increased power consumption will require the replacement of the PSU with a more powerful one when the need for conversion into a workstation.

One of the most powerful AMD processors. 8 cores in the system will allow you to distribute the load very effectively, but the utility of such a distribution for network rendering is invisible. The rarity and high cost of related components, gluttony make this configuration irrational.

Pluses:

    
A powerful computer for AMD fans

Disadvantages:

    
Extremely high power consumption and heat dissipation
    
Low total efficiency
    
Dear motherboard
    
It's hard to find and pay for a suitable cooler

Data sources are found in the links in the text. This rating is compiled as accurately as possible, but it is always worthwhile to check the relevance of the figures given. Be sure to consult the vendors for compatibility of the selected components. All calculations are relevant for October 17, 2013.

Separately it is worth mentioning, the "paradox" of getting the same processor, for example, i7-4770, both in the budget and in the top configuration. It so happened that this "people's" processor actually has a performance, below which it is not worthwhile to buy a working system today, at the same time it has excellent energy consumption indicators, an acceptable price and, as it is not strange, quite satisfies the requirements for the "heart" of the Hi-End Configurations of the render node. We can safely recommend it as the most optimal acquisition for the modern needs of 3d.

Also, do not forget the issue of power consumption, choosing the most optimal system for your needs. For example, our mini render-farm of 5 render-nodes with 125-watt processors, when fully loaded, "eats" about 100 USD of electricity monthly, so when choosing a render node, for commercial rendering, you can not discount the system's power consumption.

We hope that this mini-guide will help you decide on the choice of a computer for 3ds Max😉

The best choice as a laptop workstation for III quarter 2013 laptop is the Asus G750JW . It's a very powerful video card nVidia GeForse GTX 765M, which ( even with a stock ) will be enough to work in complex scenes 3ds Max. The processor in terms of performance comparable to that described above, the most appropriate high-top processor AMD FX-8350 , which will be rendered at a rate of a powerful desktop computer. 8 GB of RAM, a large hard drive, large screen. If you are a successful 3d specialist and able to pay ~ $ 1650 for mobile working in 3d on a laptop , it's a wonderful choice, not a compromise 👍

A great article, I want to thank you - I chose a PC for 3D rendering with my sister, I did not work with him once, I stopped on the 550 $ system on i7 4770 as taken as a basis.
I wanted to pay my own five kopecks for the conversion of such a system into a workstation.

MB
1. choosing a motherboard - I wondered - am I going to use 2 or more monitors for work. The mother of the Gigabyte GA-H81M-S1 offered at the base of the assembly has only 1 D-SUB connector, which will allow connecting no more than 1 monitor. You will have to buy a separate video card or take a motherboard with several outputs.
2. The mother is inexpensive and good, but not all the capacitors on it are solid-state, in simple language - when choosing a very poor case (and we are saving here on everything), it seems to me that the mother may fail in a year Two (electrolytic capacitors will be boiled)
3. I prefer to use 4 memory slots, 8-pin power supply, so that the processor power supply stabilization was more than 2-phase (in the future up to 12), so that there were several connectors under the video card (to increase the maximum number of connected monitors)
Chose Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H B85 Socket-1150 4xDDR3, 4xSATA3, 2xPCI-E16x, 4xUSB3.0, RAID, D-SUB, DVI, HDMI, GLAN, mATX, Retail at the price of $ 75
Yes, more expensive, but more reliable in the long run.

CPU
I7-4770 as written above - a good stone for our tasks
You do not have to pay more, buying a modification with the "K" index, you will be able to overclock the Vryatli by more than 600 MHz, and overpayment for a more expensive mother and percents and RAM (probably), I think, will not justify

RAM
I think that it's not worth using memory 1333 MHz, even if the proposed mother supports 1600 (yes, and the processor too) at almost the same price
For my system I used a set of DIMM 16Gb 4x4Gb KIT DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz G.Skill RipjawsZ (F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH) $ 148
Scored all the slots with the amount of RAM that I most likely need
(Do not be fooled thinking that you'll take a few hours, and after a month you'll buy - as soon as you buy it - so many will use, take the right amount at once, in the end - borrow money - through mesyatsok - ottain)

HDD
(In contrast to the render-node), I would not buy Toshiba 320GB 5400rpm 8MB 2.5 ", SSD is also not necessary, but take at least HDD with the required parameter of 7200rpm, but in general I advise it:
3.5 "HITACHI Ultrastar A7K2000 HUA722010CLA330, 1000GB, HDD, SATA II
$ 81 - Ultrastar hard disk is designed for use 24/7 365 days a year - you can take it for a reliable basis for the working disk and data store (in essence this disk is so steep that it can be used in servers - which it is oriented on)

Good selection, many newcomers will be a great help in the selection system. Fully soglasshus with Haloo, the RAM is better to take 1600MHZ and 1866MHZ (for AMD processors) and use it in dual channel mode - rate increase will be noticeable in comparison with the single-channel mode (in many online stores memory is already being sold in sets of 2 straps for a perfect collaboration in dvuhkanalke). In the case of acquisition workstation, the same applies to HDD - the difference between 5400rpm and 7200rpm is significant (watch the video and you will understand that in some cases the difference in performance is 100% http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= o9f8fKn40kk.

17 Jan, 2014 # Re: CPU for CG work & rendering: FX-8350 vs i7-3770 vs i7-4770 vs i7-3930K
Hello, Kostya! The gain from the transition to Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz on Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.40GHz is about 15%, so if we talk about a clean upgrade, it does not make sense due to a slight increase. In addition, at this time, the ratio of price to performance of these two processors "from the box" (4770 new bu vs. 2600k) approximately equal.

Whichever card from the lower price range you recommend? From the same GeForce GTS 450 / Radeon HD7750 which is better? Is there any noticeable difference between the GeForce and Radeon some price categories?

31 Jan, 2014 # Re: CPU for CG work & rendering: FX-8350 vs i7-3770 vs i7-4770 vs i7-3930K
Victor, the GeForce usually less productive than the Radeon for the same price. Radeon often has little concern drivers that create discomfort in the initial set-up and with recent versions of 3d applications. This all applies to the GeForce GTS 450 and Radeon HD7750, so the choice is yours. With regards to the lower price category, then this is a very vague concept. Please specify the amount of the limit on the video card, then we can talk more in detail. Yet, on the basis of practice, it is not necessary to purchase a cheaper video card than a GeForce GTS 450 / Radeon HD7750: this is the minimum (in this case 100% is sufficient), the right to work in 3ds Max.

Max, the budget for the $ 100 video card. But I recently went shopping and noticed that the GeForce GTS 450 is slightly more expensive than HD7750. But even if dokinut 10-20 dollars, you can buy already Radeon HD7770. I think we should dwell on this form? And as I understand it, "problem drivers" affected mostly recently poyavivishiesya card, and afraid of nothing special. 😉

I recommend to work with Max to take it with GeForce index of at least x50 and number of CMV 2GB memory At least for the reason that they themselves avtodeski stubbornly and persistently stated on the optimization of the engine under the CUDA, and the card company nVidia. I think it makes no sense to take the Radeon.

2 Feb, 2014 # Re: CPU for CG work & rendering: FX-8350 vs i7-3770 vs i7-4770 vs i7-3930K
Advantageous dokinut $ 30 and buy GeForce GTX 650 Ti. The next segment is already <$ 200, which is already far from the initial budget. With regards to the optimization for CUDA, at the moment it is not noticeable. All the same, you need to think in advance and, therefore, the GeForce - better choices for 3ds Max.

Hi all, dear! Max (RenderStuff), do you think there is a sense to install two graphics cards GTX 670 for improved performance when rendering on the basis of i7-3930k (in principle on any processor-based) CPU? Amazing news to me said a programmer that can be run on the computer to render, then running second 3ds Max on the same computer to put assume another picture on a miscalculation, and the whole affair in the settings PhysX graphics deliver not auto-select, or central processing unit (CPU), and GP. In this case, supposedly, to the processor card is loaded and helps calculate. Something I do not see the rationality, given that V-ray settings are not installed in the RT. Here. I was called into question. ???

Good afternoon, citizens! Well, the authors fellows work invaluable, beginners quite go. But, in my opinion, still has a fly in the ointment. Processors without doubt quite worthy podobranny, there is no doubt, feel free to take The suggested children (acre AMD FX (Bulldozer) these processors are known for their volatility, much battered parties, worn out all this stuff in for repair to take). Send BUT. Hard drive ... Well the most rational investment of money is put on the main screw faylopomoyki etc. and attracting the right customers carefully poke SSD from it all superfluous and not desired (PF, AB, Temp and others like them) on a subject leaving it soft concrete. Regarding mobility (noted above question noutu) Asus is certainly good, but the stated characteristics of ADR do not work as they should, the paradox stationary motherboard Pts good deeds but in laptops ... inhibited controllers, missing bits ... recommend ( IMHO) pay attention to the model of the same MSI. Do as the laptop game, and the above-mentioned WorkStation. Good luck to all! 👍

I interviewed a lot of people working in 3DS Max, and no one really can not answer the question ... Explain to me what is better to take for 1 computer in 3DS Max 2012 (no earlier version of this)? AMD FX-9590 Vishera or Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Interested speed (performance) is very necessary your advice. Thank you in advance !

Hello! Unfortunately, no significant changes in the direction of progress in computer hardware has not happened. So far, that ... That is why this topic is relevant and in 2014😉

Hey . Why do not you consider the INTEL Xeon E3-1230 v3 3.3GGts as a cheaper alternative to I7 4770 and 3770? And how do you think a video card with 192 bit bus to be sufficient or Better 256 bit (problem Vray RT, Mudbox, Max 2012) .Konechno the more the better, but much to be a noticeable difference?

tybys, then it appropriate to compare with the Intel Xeon E3-1240 v3. Performance and price is the same for both processors, but can be overclocked 4770K and then Zeon no chance. From my own experience skszhu that even a 256 bit bus for a little Vray RT. I stood GeForce GTX 770 (256 bit), in a more or less simple scenes it was still nothing, but difficult to work with viewports in Vray RT became impossible. Now there is a Radeon R9 290 (512 bit), an enormous difference, even in complex scenes work with the viewports is very easy, the brakes are, of course, but not so that it was impossible to do anything. So make your conclusions.

Yes 5orehead mistake at 0.1 GHz😁, and if you lower the setting ray bundle size + low resolution and the other settings to underestimate, we can achieve acceptable performance.? And you have now is Radeon, but how can there CUda all cases or is it not so fundamentally? Just this moment, working at a laptop (not fresh) and compare especially not schem

Hello. I'm going to collect a new car, and looked closer to these components: Intel Core I7-4771 / 4770; GTX-760 2gb 256 bit. RAM - 16GB, if necessary backfilled. And the SSD system, by which I imply one more question😁o I have to own 3d max install on ssd? or an ordinary hard, too, go? What do you say, normal percent and graphics?

Machete, a good time. Regarding the installation of SSD and SSD installation, I advise you to read these two topics: 1. http://renderstuff.com/whether-the-ssd-need-for-3dsmax-509/ 2. http://renderstuff.com/setting-ssd-save-failure-556/ the PS: I urge you, before you create a theme (question) use the first search on the site. Save both time and time resource creators.

I read almost all the threads of the gland, but the question remained open for me - I did not understand how effective will work 3dmaks being fixed on a SSD rather than a traditional hard drive. Because it will be difficult to find room in my budget ($ 1500-1800) volumetric SSc. With regard to the above the processor and video card, it seems to me a good configuration, but perhaps I have overlooked something somewhere, and there are more winning options in terms of price / performance. It is worth noting that the budget laid the whole system unit.

At the expense of comments in the first post, I meant that there is a corresponding topic about SSD and questions should be asked in that topic, but nothing personal. Just guys follow the order on the site so that there is no confusion.

Now on the case:

From personal experience I can say that SSD is a cool thing for 3d max, and in general for any software and the system as a whole. And it is unnecessary to spend money on a large disk - it's enough for 90-120 GB. I will not praise him and tell him that after buying such a carrier you will not have a computer, but a rocket😁. Simply after using the archive disk and SSD for the needs of the system and Max'a, the feeling of performance gain is very tangible. This is so purely my feeling of using SSD.

If you proceed from your needs, as a buyer and a person who has a limited budget, then in your place, I would still still not take revenge for an SSD drive, but bought a PC onboard with a regular archive disk - especially since you have to buy it Unambiguously, because SSD is not suitable for frequent recording and storage of all media files, as you could read in the above described topics. SSD pair with the archive disk primarily for the needs of the system and acceleration of the programs. At this stage, you can do without the SSD and better spend money on the maximum on the system, and the disk can always be bought😉.

About the video card. Sam recently changed vidyuhu, my disappeared due to marriage, changed with a surcharge on the warranty on the GTX 660, before that used AMD. The price / quality justifies itself - the performance of the viewports standards and how not strange the bugs of the viewport that were with AMD have disappeared. I think that with the choice of vidyuhi you did not miss.

Denis, this answer I expected, thank you very much) From now on I will try to unsubscribe the relevant topics. 🙂 And I write here that for normal work on my local forums in max budget should be at least $ 3,000🙂🙂 Tomorrow I go to the shops to order the computer on what else should I focus?

People who give voice to such a "minimum" should think seriously ... Well, for example about the optimization. 🙂 I started to study at the Max Pentium 166MMX😉 1,5 kilobaksa (without monitor) - quite adequately.

Machete.

Ilya_sp rights, 3000 Baku for the system to work in CG is of course too. Of course, I do not deny the fact that it is possible to collect something very productive for such money-dwelling with several monitors, a good stuffing of the system man, various gadgets and manipulators for the convenience of work and the like😁.

Last year, I collected a systemist based on the recommendation of this site (the beginning of the topic) and invested in 550-600 Baku, so it's the entire periphery, not just the system unit.

Concerning your phrase: "what else should I focus on?"
Again, I will answer not as a special in the assembly of computers and their components, tk. I myself am not. But if I were in your place and bought the system from scratch, the first thing I would not save is the processor, video card and monitor. I'm such a person that I do not really care about the look and details, I prefer simplicity of reliability and performance.

In the store, give preference to the processor in the first place, well, the motherboard is already flowing out from the chosen prots, it's easier to save on the box, buy less RAM, for example, a minimum of 8 GB. Hard disk also does not make sense to buy a large capacity, the benefit of the Internet has saved users from storing unnecessary media files that I used to store on a computer before, like a fanatic, and there was always a need for GB memory😁.

Well, the monitor. If you really want to work comfortably in 3d, then take a good monitor with a large diagonal.

Separately, I would like to note the choice of power supply. Take on more powerful with a margin for the future.

All on what you can save money as a result, you can buy / change over time, determine for yourself the criticality of these components and take it all to the maximum, on the rest of the economy. Successful purchase😉

Already ordered the computer without waiting for an answer to your question (absolutely not to offend any of the participants🙂 So the configuration is: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz GigaByte GA-Z87X-D3H Cooler Arctic Freezer 13 ASUS GTX-760 2GB 256bit DDR3 16GB KIT (8GBx2) Kingston 1600 MHz SSD Kingston 120GB KC300 WD 1TB FSP ATX FX800-GLN's see what happens 🙂

Hello. I have the following situation. We collected computer 6 years ago. Render - for days, but so quietly that something is out of order, and (even longer beeps). In your recommendations pre-collated sets. staying true to the processor i7 4790k (3930 I would like to but it's expensive. And how much difference between them is palpable?) Video card is thought to leave available, namely the ATI Radeon HD 4870, but doubt. Say what? whether to replace GeForce GTX 650 Ti. Or does it makes sense to string up and take the ASUS GTX-760 2GB 256bit ???

In any case, a 256-bit graphics card will make a 128-bit even on the 2 generations older than her with the same index name. Therefore, if you can take the best bits of 256 and a minimum of 2 GB of memory. Though if the machine is only to render meaning to take a card there, it is better to take a more powerful processor 🙂

Hello.

Good evening! As well as the 3 years ago was interested in the question of acquisition quadra, but communicated with a person who worked on it realized that it putts a waste of money, it is better to take a top-end gaming vidyahu with a good supply of memory for the money. According to the familiar little performance gain is not on blocks, but still on it much more stable work very hard scene. I GTX 560Ti 1Gb Ram, no complaints, except that noise under load as a plane propelerny😁 and 1GB of memory is not enough.

Hello, thank you for your hard work, a good site, learned a lot. Help is needed. I stopped on the configuration up to $ 425. But I want to make the workplace rather than a render node and a budget option, since it is only beginning to learn 3D. Help choose the alternative motherboard with a "look ahead"🙂, that without integrated vidio card (I want to take the card separately) and an alternative power supply because I realized that with the external graphics card is better to take in a more powerful power supply. Thank you!

Hi gabriel,


Real price of A i7-5820K is near USD 500, at least in retail network in Ukraine . However, you definitely right. Taking less See Productive Now (3.3 GHz vs 3.2 GHz) i7-3930K , the no Makes Sense, since its' the retail price to still about USD 600+😉
