View Full Version : computer rendering slowly, max and vray

hi guys

Ive been on a few forums trying to find a solution but have been unsuccessful.

I recently built a computer, its a dual opteron intelagos 6272 system with 64 gig of ram and a 256 gig solid state drive. nvidia quadro 4000 card.

I use 3d studio max and vray to render images but for some strange reason its rendering times are incredibly slow. just to put it into perspective, i have 3 machines in total and i tested an Identical file on all 3 to compare:

machine 1. core i7 980x with 16 gig of ram render time 6.5 hours
machine 2. opteron dual 6120 12 core (24 total), 32 gig of ram render time 4.2 hours
machine 3. opteron dual 6272 16 core (32 total), 64 gig of ram render time 32.5 hours

everything else seems to run really fast and there are no memory errors, disk errors or anything that jumps out as being wrong? the solid state is lightning fast, all 32 cores operate fine im really struggling here! please help

here are two screen grabs of my computer rendering a bedroom shot. it should be doing it in 3 to 4 hours...not 40!! really upsetting
