iMac Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I use Evolve 2017.1 on my current iMac 4 GHz Intel Core i7 with AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB.

I plan to upgrade to iMac pro, but as I was told in a previous topic, I will not gain any particular advantage graphic-wise, since the new iMac Pro is not equipped with a NVIDIA card and CUDA. 

You could say the same on my current iMac that, as the iMac Pro, use the Radeon card...as I understand it the rendering and construction is mostly done by the CPU. Is it then fair to say, that an upgrade from my current iMac to the iMac Pro WOULD give me some speed, since I get more CPU power and more cores?

Ok I spoke to one of the developers and in a nut shell, Yes, the new iMac Pro will be faster in rendering. If you are primarily using Evolve for modeling, then the cost might outweigh the purported benefits.
