Re: Upgrade CPU or GPU?

Dang it! Y'all got me questioning my thought processes... again!
Which is actually, okay. I want to make sure I have everything right before I pull the trigger.

Re: Upgrade CPU or GPU?

No shame in that, you don't want to go spending the time and money only to find out that it barely registers much of a difference. For my own use, I am Mac based, and while I was very tempted by the iMac Pro offerings (with 8 cores, 64GB of RAM, and, most importantly, the VEGA 64 GPU option), in the end I went with a steal of a deal off of B&H for last year's iMac, a quad-core i7 (instead of XEON), 64GB of RAM and a 580 GPU. My reasoning was that, with the deal I was getting (under $4k), could I justify nearly double that for a system that, while powerful, might not make 2x difference in responsiveness and rendering? I couldn't justify that to myself, so that's why I went the direction that I did.

Roger that! I'm going to stay the Windows route, though I may create a Hackintosh install to see how that might work. I'm still reviewing the different possibilities and the "boss" hasn't released the funds yet. That will come presently. Researching the different possibilities is a fun thing!
