AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

How to you compare Intel and AMD processors. i3, i5 and i7 I know but when it comes the AMD I sometimes have to go by prices and that never cuts it as other factor are involve and even among brands same processor rating comes in various prices.

Here is a good eample!

Which has a more powerful processor the AMD Six Core or the Intel Core i5?

For nXt, use clockSpeed X nPhysicalCPUs as a decent rule of thumb performance index.  The hyperthreading used by the new Intel CPUs will make them perform a little better (~10%) than this index would indicate.

Performance of other applications may be very different.

So the AMD will be 6 x 2.7 = 16.2, will the i5 will be 4 x 3.4 = 13.6. So the winner here is the AMD right?

The rule of thumb tells you the two machines will be very close with regard to nXt performance, especially when you take into account the hyperthreading bonus for the i5.  I would choose between these two systems based on other factors.  

For example, the i5 will almost certainly be faster for other software, including AutoCAD.  The AMD machine, on the other hand, could be cheaper.

Thanks will put that in consideration ie the hyperthreading 

Nice site with CPU benchmarks comparison:

Chose two CPUs to see the overall performance. There is also multithreaded rendering benchmarks - Cinema, 3DSMax etc.

My two cents.....

AMD for workstation computers        -           Intel for renderfarm computers

Also costing on top shelf i7's big question on your bang for your buck vs top AMD.

I also find AMD can be hard on RAM chips, have had a lot burn out.

"Thanks Rich. I also popped-in my license code to the checker, it came up with nXtFarm64_0355.exe Seems to be the render farm though?"

Old versions of nXt for AutoCAD

Is it still possible to download old versions (bought in 2013), of nXt for AutoCAD? Got a new PC, but cannot find my installation file. Thanks.See More

"Almost certainly.  A fix may be difficult at this point.  The code has not been touched in years."

Reflected background brightness

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?See More

Accurender für Bricscad

Es gab vor einiger Zeit mal eine Version Accurender nxt für Bricscad.Wird es das in Zukunft wieder geben z.B. für Bricscad 19 oder 20??Wäre super, denn dann könnte ich meine 3D Modelle die ich mit Accurender rendere auch mit Bricscad rendern.See More
