  1. New VFX Workstation

    Hello, I am looking to buy a new setup. Currently what I have is a hp z640 with dual xeon e5-2630 v4 processors @2.2GHZ (max turbo frequency @3.1GHZ) as you can imagine it's very fast at rendering but in terms of houdini simulations and it's single core performance it is very poor. I am hoping to get rid of this setup and purchase good balance in multi core and single core performance (the dream would be to have the most cpu's at the highest clock speeds but unfortunately I think the price tag would give me a heart attack). Can anyone suggest a good setup that gives very good simulation and render times. It doesn't have to be classified as a workstation because I know those are expensive for whatever reason.
