I’m planning to build to my wife a render node at home. She works mainly with archviz and event 3D rendering on Vray for sketchup (sometimes lumion). Due to her studies she’s working on a laptop with the current config:
Ryzen 7 5800H
32GB DDR4 3200mhz memory
GeForce RTX 3060 6GB
I’m planning to build a render node for her but I’m kinda lost which should be better for the money.
I found some good deals in for Xeon E5-2683 V4 (16 core/32 threads, 2.10Ghz base and 3.0 Ghz turbo) + 32/64GB DDR4 ECC Memory + RTX 3070 8GB (or maybe a cheaper model and a Nvidia Tesla)
As my understanding sketchup wouldn’t benefit of processors cores/threads, however she would still work in the laptop and use the other machine just to render in Vray and/or Lumion.
Is this configuration good enough or you would recommend something different? My budget is USD 1500-ish.
