I am fortunate at the moment where my company is asking me to provide them with specs that I would want in a new Desktop PC for my office.
I've had close to a dozen different workstations in the past and all worked really well, but I have to admit I was just getting by with just above minimal components in the prior machines based on what they would buy me.
So, although this topic gets beat up quite a bit, I'm curious any have opinions about certain computer components and which they would rank more valuable than others.
For example, my current GPU (at home) is an Nvidia RTX4000, it worked ok for rendering smaller building projects. However, these days I'm working more on large sites with many new buildings as the Architect. My work desktop GPU is an Nvidia Quadro P4000.
I believe I'm overtasking my workplace's GPU, and just realized it does not support Ray Trace..... (RTX does).
Having said that, I'm sure I'm overtaxing my CPU/processor as well, but that makes sense after 5 years.
So, if you had a fairly open checkbook to buy the almost best (instead of just a notch above minimal):
What GPU would you wish for when using Revit/Enscape/Archvision/Twinmotion/or really any other render tool alongside Revit?? My current thought is the best RTX Nvidia GPU that they'll let me buy, but perhaps RTX isn't the right model??? Thoughts?
For CPU/Processor, im going to ask for best available, but if you have thoughts, please chime in....
I'm also thinking dual hard drives; to keep programs on C drive and other misc items (ie materials) on D or other non-C drive. My home machine works well with dual drives.
If you have had good experiences or recommendations, please let me know, very much appreciated.
I have a chance to do a new computer the right way, so may as well ask for advice
Have a great day!!
