hi guys, sorry can't speak English well. I planning to buy new hardware for OpenCL simulations on GPU. I study a little about pro-GPUs computing performance and find some information in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLOPS "Built using commercially available parts. AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU combined with AMD Radeon Vega FE cards in CrossFire tops out at over 50 TFLOPS (OMGOD!!!) at just under US$3,000 for the complete system." is it right? Can combine two AMD Radeon Vega FE cards in CrossFire with CPU? Does it help to speed up simulations in Houdini? Which Single-precision or Double-precision floating-point is more important in Houdini? is it depend on 32bit or 64bit process in software? https://pro.radeon.com/en-us/product/radeon-vega-frontier-edition/ OpenCL™ 2.0 Support Enables professionals to tap into the parallel computing power of modern GPUs and multi-core CPUs to accelerate compute-intensive tasks in leading CAD/CAM/CAE and Media & Entertainment applications that support OpenCL. Does Houdini support OpenCL 2ver?
I am thinking of getting a new computer for my freelance work, I am thinking of getting Ryzen 1700X + RX 480 + 32GB RAM on 2000$ budget, I have heard that AMD has better Open CL support than nVidia. I am still a little new on how Houdini uses the hardware, I tweeted to companies who develop, Real Flow & Pf Track, they recommended getting a card with better Open CL support. I am also into video editing and motion graphics, ( 2D stuff), so for that I have been using my 2011 Macbook Pro, Its given me a fairly good performance, and that's what I have been using to learn houdini, its given me a decent performance so far. Macs were horrible for using Houdini 11 to 13, but since 14 I have seen it has become more stable on Macs, sadly Apple no longer makes computers.
