Ac­cel­er­ate ren­ders with ex­ter­nal GPUS

3D World - - RADEON PRO -

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.
