Differences when rendering on AMD and Intel procs

Recommended Posts

I've never tested this before, but I'm hoping some of you have -

How consistent is mantra when rendering on Intel and AMD procs?  Are there perceivable differences?

I'm also wondering about how close mantra performance correlates with the non real world cpu benchmarks to determine which procs make the most sense...

 

My pickle is I want to build a big simulation node with dual procs, which I believe will limit me to intel at this stage.  I'm also keen on hp for support - intel procs only.

But AMD probably makes more sense for the rendering side of things in the future.

I do have a HP dual Xeon setup, and I confirm this is very confortable. That being said, I have discovered the joy of cloud farm rendering, and having my workstation freed up during rendering or sim is just very cool. So personally, I would not invest again in big setup (that’s confortable when you are tweaking setups and have many iterations), because with a good network, you can really enjoy cloud rendering and have a simple i7 or AMD for setting up your scenes (and with a good graphic card).
