I read all the old posts - but still unsure. To speed up Topaz ( every app including Studio not just the new AI apps) what would be the best ultimate system to buy - that is where are the bottlenecks. Imagine your employer said - money is not object but your fired unless you can increase your topaz rendering times. So what really speed things up
For instance, I have a very high end gaming PC - windows i7 9700K/16gb ram/fast ssd/1080ti with 11gb vram - and do professional work where I am willing to buy what I must to speed things up ( for me mostly topaz studio and all its apps) -
is it all GPU now ( of which 1080ti 11vram - well I can’t get much better)
and the CPU threads matter where I should get an AMD many threaded CPU
or pure single CPU thread speed ( overclocking them?)
or is it also system ram ( I for instance only have 16Gb)
Or tell me what I can do to profile where the issue is.
You tell me I will buy a ~ $4k computer if I have too and report back on how it went.
some caveats: I have them built so no I am less interested in Apple computers & I do heavy AI work, so I would prefer to keep an Nvidia GPU setup (need CUDA) so less interested in AMD GPUs - but AMD CPUs are fine.
So where is the bottlenecks and spec out the best Topaz computer possible.
