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.
Don'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.
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$.

There isn't a more compact solution (i.e. zero space required).

But now i'm really impressed by Your job on the BIDIRECTIONAL engine it is amazing I love it. Now I'm searching for A Threadripper 1950X or a nice R7 1800X. The R7 1800x is almost 2X times faster than the i7 6700k it an amazing CPU.
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).

And also Ryzen Gen 2700X is going replace both 1700x and 1800x at a price lower than 1700x for performance a bit better than current 1800x.
