Computer upgrade to make rendering faster
by Christoph Mellin on Mar 2, 2016 at 8:00:58 pm
I have started to get into using cinema 4d and after effects and wanted to know if I should upgrade my pc which I have for about two and half years. Only thing changed is gpu. I will use cinema 4d and after effects often because I am using them for school.
I thought about upgrading my mother board so I could add more than 16GB of ram. Or should I go with a new cpu like i5 4460 with a cheap-ish mother bard? My budget is 230 Euros.
I can't decide about the upgrade because my current cpu has 6 cores which I think is better than 4 cores for cinema 4d rendering and after effects, but every benchmark shows that intel i5 4460 is better than fx-6100.
Would I feel that i5 is better in render times or it would only increase the performance by little?
I could buy new motherboard and for the rest of money buy more ram.
Here are my specs:
AMD FX-6100 3.6GHz
Gainward GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 2GB GDDR5
2x Kingston 8GB, DDR3, 1333MHz
Thank you in advance and sorry if my English isn't the best.
