Mini Houdini Farm

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

What do you guys about this for a sim/rendering solution with houdini?

 

Just tinkering with the idea, but would it be great to throw a big SIM to this setup:

No graphics card, but in a way that would help keeping the price down..

I think you are better off just buying one expensive machine with a ton of ram if you are gonna do heavy simulations.

 

For rendering it would probably work pretty good.

Yep, a few fast cores will usually outstrip a room full of networked cores for things like fluid sim... there's just too much data to move between cores - even the interconnect bus between CPUs in a dual-chip machine can be easily saturated and end up slowing down proceedings.

 

It would certainly be a fine thing for rendering though :-)
