  1. Hi there,


    Are there any benchmarking tests out there that are the most indicative of how houdini will perform running larger simulations?  I have read that single core high frequency matters though I also here some people pointing to the new Threadrippers which are mellow in terms of frequency but have high core counts.

    Looking for a high sample size, objective test that will relate to houdini large scale simulations.  Not mantra, not small sims.

    I wanted to add my current setup to add context.  I have an i7 6950x OC'd to 4.2 ghz ( watercooled) with 128gb of 2666 ram.  This runs fairly well though I see setups sometimes process faster than my setup.

    This is all part of me trying to understand everything I can about how houdini manages hardware and how you can tune both hardware and software to each other.  I do realize that at a certain point this leaves the single workstation and jumps to a very different process of splitting sims up onto a server to process extremely huge sims.  I am more so interested in how to min/max the single workstation.

    Thanks in advance!
