Is anyone here using a Threadripper 1950x?
I would like to know what its performance is like in ZBrush. If you can, post results from its performance test: Preferences - Performance - Test Multithreading

Afaik, ZBrush scales well with many cores, so this CPU should be very good for it. The RAM speed also matters.
Can anyone confirm?
>>
Ryzen 1700 is probaly your best bet. 8C/16T. Can overclock close to 1800X. Best bang for buck.
>>
Why? I didn't ask for a good bang for buck CPU, I asked about the performance of a specific HEDT CPU in a specific software package.

I don't see what part of using Zbrush would actually justify using Threadripper over Ryzen. Threadripper is hardly better than Ryzen for most workloads. It's a server CPU built for virtual machines and web servers.

Keyshot? Maybe.

You're an idiot. That's why you don't see it.
I wrote in my first post that ZBrush scales well with many cores.
If you don't see a need for higher performance in ZBrush, you should just keep out of this thread.

Here are some other ZBrush benchmarks I came across. Ryzen 1800X vs dual xeon with 32 threads, Xeon wins, now what do you say?


AMD Ryzen7 1800x
64GB DDR4

Single = 2.742
Multi = 0.617982
Multithreading = 443%
Dual Xeon E5-2690 @ 2.9Ghz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) - 8 hyper threaded cores per CPU = 32 cores total
64 GB quad channel ram

single thread - 3.519
multi thread - 0.4429
multi thread performance - 794%

If you're willing to pay three times the price for something like 30% increased performance in things that take vast minority of your time and don't really affect your art, then cool. I just don't see any sense in it.

Also if you just want to buy cool hardware for the sake of hardware, I can relate to that.
>>
>>586134
To continue I also tried to dig brush engine and dynamesh benchmarks, but those don't seem to exist. It would be cool to see if Threadripper scales at all. I would be very surprised if there's any concrete difference when compared to Ryzen.
>>
>>586134
Where did I say that ZBrush is all I use and I wouldn't benefit from the CPU in other software as well? I am only asking about ZBrush because that is the only factor of uncertainty for me and I'd like to see actual benchmarks. The inbuilt performance test is all that is needed.
>>
>>586139
Honestly for the money I would pick up 2 used E5-2667 V2's and a new 2S mobo. I got a pair of em for $490 on ebay for a CPU rendering rig for 3ds Max. Was gonna go 1950x but I just needed a spare rig to crunch frames.
>>
>>586127
Don't insult the dude when you're the one who came here asking questions. Do you even fucking know which operations in Zbrush are multithreaded or did you just hear a vague 'Zbrush scales well with more cores'?
>>
Jesus christ, why not aswer OPs question? A dual xeon ebay board or a Ryzen isn't good alternatives to a Threadripper in all cases.
