Accelerate renders with external GPUS
Connecting to a computer via Thunderbolt 3, external GPU breakaway boxes like Sonnet’s EGFX series enable both Windows and Mac users to boost the performance of their systems with AMD’S powerful Radeon Pro WX 7100, Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Pro SSG graphics cards.
In tests conducted by MAXON, the motorbike model shown above was rendered in Radeon Prorender in Cinema 4D R20. Connecting an external Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPU cuts render times dramatically – and the effect is scalable, with two external GPUS cutting render times still further.
Tests conducted by MAXON Computer in June 2018 on macos 10.13.4 using a mid-2017 15-inch Macbook Pro with a 2.9 GHZ quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, AMD Radeon Pro 560 internal GPU and 16 GB DDR4 memory, and a mid-2017 27-inch 5K imac with a 4.2 GHZ quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, AMD Radeon Pro 580 internal GPU and 16 GB DDR4 memory.
