Need experienced thoughts on hardware list, and 3rd party GPU renderers....
show user profile  HANZZ
I'll be coming into some small inheritance soon, and would like to get thoughts on the following hardware:

i7 5820K (6 x 3.6ghz)
ASrock X99 Extreme3 Mboard
64gb ddr4
eVGA SuperNOVA 1300 power supply

And does anyone have experience with either the demo or the full version of Redshift, the third party renderer that uses your GPU for accelerated rendering? Or any other 3rd party GPU renderers?

Wait a few weeks and get the 11 GB Nvidia cards. Much faster than the 1080. If you are going to start with GPU renders, you will enjoy the extra boost.

Well, at the very least, if I wait until then, the 1070 price might drop so I could get two. Theoretically.

Nik, do you have more info on the card, by name/number? I googled and only found the 980TI and Titan Z.

Thanks for that. I'll certainly wait for its release and see if the 1070 or 1080 standard drop in price.
