View Full Version : What do they do with their old render farm....

Does anyone have any idea what those big studios do with their old render farm or even their old work station after getting a new one? Do they throw them away, sell them cheap or just keep them for memories :shrug:

I heard that they sometimes modify some of the machines, so that they can be used as a workstation... (if possible).

It'd be cool if they donated them or something, but I have no idea...:shrug:

That would be even cooler if they sell them to us here in CGtalk for cheap price....I'll go for it :beer:

in a render farm every processor can crunch something, so i dont see why they wouldnt just incorporate them.............why get rid of 10 thz of processing power just because you got a new 100 thz farm..........(we were talking about the big companys remember!) i know i for one would put the old processors to work too ;)

as for the rest of the parts.....................ummmmm, well ive seen some very fashionable circuit board jewelery in some stores
