The other option is to rent a server on Amazon EC2. It is expansive but it is an "on demand" cost (you pay only for what you use and only when you use it). A rendering like your will probably take something like 7-8 hours to be 100% noise free at very high resolution on a 72 core instance. For a cost of about 25$.Sharlybg wrote: ↑Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:09 amDon't really like such solution ! I always prefere to be as compact as possible this why in the past you see me working a lot on GPU.It is possible, not trough PCIe but through Ethernet. I mean, network rendering does what you are looking for, it is the old solution for CPU-only rendering: https://knowm.org/24-core-linux-cluster ... from-ikea/ (cheap case, cheap motherboard, no gpu, fastest CPU worth buying and a bit of ram)
The IKEA supercomputer was a (old) funny example of this kind of solution.
There isn't a more compact solution (i.e. zero space required).
Keep in mind that AMD is going to release a slightly improved version of Ryzen the next month. For the new Threadripper, we will unfortunately have to wait more (I will buy one when it comes out).
