emelendrez posted a topic in HardwareHi guys! I have the chance to upgrade my workstation. But I don't completely understand what would be the best choice in my case. Still learning about hardware and houdini´s performance. I´m in the advertisement Industry, and as you know, the timetable can get pretty crazy. I´m interested in improving simulation times and performance mostly. These are my specs. AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x 16-Core Processor, 37000 Mhz 32 GB 2666Mhz DDR4 (Corsair Vengeance) GTX 1080 Ti What would you do? Upgrade Graphics card? maybe getting a second one? or getting more RAM? I´m still learning about Hardware and I´m a little lost. Also If you can recommend a YouTube channel or forum where I can learn more about this stuff, I´d really appreciate it. Thanks a lot for the help! Cheers!
PC Upgrade Advice
chrisdunham95 posted a topic in HardwareHey guys, I currently have a - X99-UD4 gigabyte motherboard, 32gb of ram , GTX 770, i7 - 5820k, (500gb SSD, 2x 3tb HDD) - i am looking to upgrade very soon but not sure where to start or what actually would improve Houdini/other vfx software (maya/nuke/rendering) performance. To me my graphics card and ram was what i was thinking. My ram is nothing special and my board is quad channeled so was thinking of replacing my current ram with 64gb (4 x 16) sticks, and then replacing my current GTX 770 with either a 1070/1080 OR as suggested by a pc building freind, a Quadro of some type? (but i didnt and couldnt tell from online specs/benchmarks whether a Quadro would out perform a GTX 1070/80 of the same price for rendering/simulating rather than gaming) He also had a suggestion that i use the new m2 sata ssd instead of new ram. Using that to place all projects on and work from, (as it has much higher read/write speeds than a ssd) - also considering to begin to use openCL and GPU rendering is beggining to take over. So essentially looking for some advice and facts about what will help my performance etc. (When i get to it my budget will be around 1000) Any help would be great!
upgraded to 13, how to migrate customizations?
kleer001 posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsSo I finally installed 13... but all my old digital assets, desktops, and the rest are still in 12.5 land. How do I sweep up all that old customization? Seems easy, right? I searched a bit, but couldn't find anything. Maybe I'm not searching for the right thing or my brain's mush from last night. Get old prefs, how do?!
