  1. I am happy to report that the computer now seems to be settled in its task. with a comfy new Intel based board. I actually got a piece of work done in one cut without spoiling it by the machine freezing.

    Onwards and Sideways......

  2. Never bought anything with an AMD processor... always stuck with Intel... especially when its mission critical... last thing I bought (fortunately not with my own money lol) was a pair of 4-CPU 10core blades (40 cores in all) for a big database... read some disturbing reports of issues with the 12core Opteron CPUs so stuck with the Intel 10core ones...

    That's what I could do with for rendering! Stuck with 8 cores at 4Ghz and its sloooowww.

    Bet its the price of a new car though so maybe not.

    Ummm arguably a tad more... configured blades with 4 x 10core, 2.26GHz CPU, 512Gb of RAM, 2 x 10Gb network, 2 x 8Gb FibreChannel SAN connect, 4Gb SDHC boot card = 12,000 each approx :) Then theres the 55k worth of database software and the 70k of 24Tb of RAID6 SAN disc array on top :) but it goes like the proverbial muck off a shovel :)
