Blink Image have invested in Dell Precision T7610 workstations – allegedly the “most powerful workstations available”. I’m not sure about that, but they are darn quick! My own workstation has 48 little rendering buckets dancing around my screen when I click ‘RENDER’. Its great to see. One of the major advantages of having so much power in my local workstation is that I am less reliant on the renderfarm, freeing this up for other jobs.
The machine has dual Xeon CPUs each with 12 physical cores (24 when hyperthreaded), which amounts to 48 threads in total. 64GB RAM compliments the CPUs. Running Windows7x64, it is proving to be a VERY stable, strong system.
