I came to this forum attempting to figure this issue out...
I've been approved to max this baby out when it comes out, but are GPU render solutions the answer? Will going with this Mac Pro be the wrong path?
I haven't had a chance to really give iRay or Octane A thorough chance to prove its self a solution. Or maybe TeamRender will be more refine in R16(hope 15.5)
I would guess that going from a 16 thread 2009 to a 24 thread 2013 will be a worth wild improvement, but the GPU scene is really creeping up fast.
