8 GPU Superserver Benchmark

0

This is what a server with 8 GeForce Titan cards looks like! And check out the performance in Cycles :) The GarageFarm.NET team built one as a test. Would you like to know how your scene performs on this beast? Leave a message and the GarageFarm guys will pick one for their next test!

Hi all blender enthusiasts, and geeks of all kind!

GarageFarm.NET is a relatively new farm on the market. We've been supporting Blender Cycles on CPU for quite a while now and are finishing public beta testing of our automatic uploader now. Anyone can visit our website at www.GarageFarm.NET, download the software and test it. I believe we have the best prices on the market, and by an order of magnitude(!)

But this post is not about that. :)

We recently finished building and testing our new GPU super server with eight 6GB Titan GPU cards, 20,800 CUDA Cores that can be accessed via remote desktop.

For now you need to contact our support to get the access, the guys shall set it up for you in 15 minutes or less. We are also working on an automated customer portal and if there is enough demand we are planning to build a few more of those servers to avoid potential queues. The price is as low as possibly could, the offer is not for big companies only, but small studios, freelances and even hobbyists.

We used benchmark listed here. But we encountered a slight problem, on 8 powerful GPUs the 150 sample test basically completes before it even begins . hahahaha :)

So we cranked up the samples to 700 (4.66 times more) and benchmarked both our CPUs and GPUs. Stay tuned as we have more announcements coming your way soon.
