I am considering buying a workstation to help reduce light building times, but I realized the cost of Xeon processors and other parts is a bit high. Therefore, I wanted to know what performance gains I will be getting and whether it’s worth that cost. I googled light building benchmarks and didn’t get useful results.
So would you guys be interested in doing a light build benchmark using your PCs so that we have a better idea of assessing the need for hardware?
If there are enough submissions, I’ll try to make a wiki page and post a results table for everyone to see. We’d need to agree on a free archvis scene so anyone can download it, and what information to include in each benchmark (CPU, motherboard… etc).
