Reality and LUX processor use.
I will soon be getting a new computer, and resources to work with Reality are high on my list.
I have been thinking about dual processors on a single motherboard, as the CPU is more important for Reality/LUX.
I know Intel i7 processor is effective, but I have also been looking at the Intel Xenon CPUs, and have yet to finally decide on that.
I know that if one is looking at a render farm it is the number of CPUs that matters most, and not so much the clock speed of the CPU. So in a similar way, would a slower 8 core Xenon 2.2 Ghz be more effective than, for example, a 6 or 4 core i7 ?
Also, am I correct in thinking that some Nivedia cards are now using OpenCL and so can be used with Reality/LUX ?
