DaViper Posted January 18, 2017 Share Posted January 18, 2017 I am going to have to build another computer and I realized with some basic tests that Chief taxes my current system even more than any of my other softwares do so I would like to find out if there are any benchmark tests or links available to determine the best bang for the buck in my new machine build? I am still on the fence between the Intel i7 vs Xeon. Seems about all you dig up online has to do with "gaming"....Something I could care less about. I know the Xeon class seem to be built for this type of work, and can have many more virtual cores, but when looking at certain tests and reports, some feel they are kind of a waste of cash vs the best i7. I won't be taxing my system every day. Many days are nothing more than emails and basic files. I probably tax my system 3days/mo with some type of 3D work. Anyone here push their system with clocking and whatnot? I typically run a little hotter settings but stable is most important. I have an older Gigabyte MB with i7 950 and kinda need a little more from that one. My newest build will have to be a ground up. I tried Ray Trace with my old machine and stopped the cycle after realizing it was going to take WAY too long. Also, from what I gather so far, it seems that typical renderings in 3D space are primarily just GPU heavy, correct? And Ray Trace is what pushes the CPU?
