advanced rendering for AutoCAD
Is there a maximum number of cores that Accurender can utilise?
Sort of-- nXt has a hard-coded max of 32 but you get diminishing returns before than point. If you go beyond 32 they can sometimes be used, depending on the load. I guess I would still think of 32 as a practical limit.
ArStudio should do much better-- far more threads are created than the number of physical cores present, the scheduler and the load balancing is much improved, and the hard-coded limit is gone. I've only got 16 physical cores here, so it's a bit hard to test. It's almost a moot point since I implemented noise-reduction, most renderings converge so fast now that I'm not yearning for extra cores.
There should be an Update Manager in the Start menu. Grab and install 0267. If this doesn't work I'll send a link.
