Chaos Corona for 3ds Max > [Max] General Discussion

Will Corona take advantage of announced Xeon Phi accelerator ?

I'm not saying it is bad, it still looks more attractive, than GPU rendering ;)

That wasn't so true before Corona.

Paul Jones:
8gb is plenty - well at least it does me, and my 2.5gb gfx card fits most of my interior scenes in with iray

glimmers of hope

Something to remember with both GPU rendering and this new phi processor is the RAM they have goes further.  This is because they don't need to store the OS + 3D program + whatever else on the GPU or Phi's RAM.  The only thing stored on the RAM on these will be the actual scene data with the rendering code needed.  This makes 8 GB on these cards work more like 12GB to 16GB or so on a full computer system.
