One final question. So last night I submit a job to both the manager computer (my workstation)
and the PC I’ve been talking about.
My computer has 8GB of RAM, windows 64bit, I’m showing four processors in task manager, Xeon CPU E5440 2.83GHz and 2.83 GHz.
I submitted the job in 64bit mode as these are both 64bit operating systems. The PC did each frame in 8 minutes while the manager computer (my workstation specs above) did each frame in 27 minutes! What the hell! Now I KNOW my manager computer should be blowing the other PC away with specs like that, or at least coming close, but it took three times longer!
Could it be because I haven’t defragged my system in a while? I had everything shut down except for background proccesses, and all the maps are on this machine.
my specs are this quad processors, 8 Gb RAM, windows xp64bit, 3ds max 2011
you have helped, it just didn’t seem like it at first. yes I would appreciate any help you can offer, I just don’t like when people reply and ask more questions without explaining why. at least tell me why you need to know this and that, and what specs, etc I can get to help you help me.
In your last post you asked a lot of good questions, so thank you
