Swarm Hardware Specs

Hi all,

I want to put together a render farm for building the light. I want to put together 2-3 servers with Xion CPUs and enough ram but I’m not sure whether I need to have good GPUs as well or it doesn;t really matter when you bake the light using swarm. because if that materrs I should buy workstations to be able to install a good GPU. please advise.

This is what I’m considering for rack mount


and for workstation

please let me know your thoughts,


Lightmass does not use the GPU at all at the moment, so the more CPU power the better.
