AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am building a new Rendering Machine to work with Autocad and NXT. 

Biggest question is OS. How does NXT work on windows 10 pro?? Do i stick with windows 7?

Here is the build so far: Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Case: Cougar MG100 minitower

Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Extreme4

CPU: Intel Core i5 7600 3.5GHz to 4.10GHz

RAM: 16GB DDR4

HD: MZ-75E1T0E Samsung EVO 850 1TB VNAND

Video: Radeon Pro WX5100, 8GB GDDR5, 4 Display Port out

DVD: ASUS 24X DVDR/RW

Windows: 7 PRO 64bit

Dump Radeon and get some serious video card like NVidia (GTX 1070 or 1080).

Did you examine the new AMD Ryzen CPUs? Look quite powerful.

Windows 10 pro is OK, not having any problems so far, with any software, even an older ones.

If you have software that you may or may not "own", 10 will not let it run.  if it cannot authenticate it, its dead. 

Still running 8.1 at home (and love it!)

What do you mean Kevin? 10 turned into software piracy police now? Didn't know that... :)

I had 10 installed for about 30 minutes before I noticed that a couple of my programs weren't loading. Then got a pop-up telling me why.  Reverted back to 8.1 and have been happy ever since.

Telling about not being compatible with the new OS or not being properly licensed? Between those two alternatives are abyssal difference I think. Never got this kind of message (about not being licensed OK) after the upgrade form WIN7 64bit to WIN10 64bit on any of my (3) computers. Should I start to feel lucky? ;)

All softwares work if installed on wins 8 and ungrade to 10. Like Kevin said, some will not install directly on Wins 10. Iobit start menu 8 is one and Corel X3 is another.

Kevin you probably mean the Windows 10 smartscreen function. I think it can be disabled anyway.

"Not yet.  It's not quite like that-- where you can offload certain portions.  It's more like an all or nothing proposition."

"Thank you Roy. The more physical based effects nXt has, the more realistic pictures it will compute. All of those need a lot of computing power under (or on top of) our desks though. Are you doing any move to engage GPUs on rendering process in nXt?…"

"Most are using nVidia's stuff for denoising-- it's pretty impressive. They are reflective caustics which you get automatically in the new engine-- yes, I think they come from sunlight striking the chair bases.  They should be pretty…"

"Nice! Many path renderers are introducing denoising features with good results. I have a question on those images Roy: the bright elliptical spots on the wall between the two windows are reflection caustics from highly reflective surface on the…"

"I've been experimenting with nVidia's denoiser (requires one of their GPUs) in the new Image Editor.  Very promising-- here's regular and denoised.  Click on each image to see it full size:"
