I am curious how many users of Carrara are running AMD CPUs versus Intel.
Currently, I am building out a decently sized rack server to run lab virtual machines for my job. Naturally, I started thinking about shutting down the labs on the weekend and rendering Carrara stuff with all that horsepower…
To save $$$, my servers will likely be 2-sockets with 8-cores and using AMD processors (32 GB of RAM). I typically go with Intel chips but getting this many cores from Intel hardware is more $$$ than I’d like to spend.
If anyone has run Carrara on AMD hardware, I’d love to get your feedback on the experience.
