Another question for the pros…
Currently, I have 2 x PC’s both with 4 x GPUs inside them, both PCs are connected via 1Gb switch to each other and a storage server…
Would anyone know, if there might be a better configuration? I’m speaking specifically about speeds when C4D octane uses the 2nd PC as a render node.
I tend not to use the 2nd node when rendering light scenes as the transfer time (from master to slave) can take longer than the render, which is fine, I understand that bottleneck I guess!
But I’m wondering, for larger scenes, if there’s anything to be done to help speed the transfer up a bit?
Unfortunately, there are no free PCi lanes to add 10Gb ethernet. (everyone else in the studio has a Mac and is on a 10Gb network 😢)
I think I know the answer to this, but maybe someone else has had similar thoughts and actually knows what they’re doing?!
