Thanks romullus! ;) Is there any date for the 1.4 release? Can't see it anywhere, sorry.

Any news if we're going to have region render directly on VFB in v1.4?

That was another doubt i had :) I read somewhere (tomshardware if i'm not mistaken) that 3 screw holes wouldn't line up. Corners and some internals do. Also found this for reference:

If i go the Samsung 850 Evo 1TB | Asus Z10PA-D8 route i was thinking on the Fractal Define R4.

On the other hand on the Samsung 950 Pro M.2 PCIe | Asus Z10PE-D8 WS route the Fractal Define XL R2 is a really tempting choice but i'm not sure the overall extra cost is really worth it. I guess i have to sink that in :)

Do you have any dual Xeons Juraj?

Great input Juraj! Many thanks! Sata 3 ssd route is somewhat around 300€ cheaper. Cheaper MB and no special SSI-EEB compatible case to match :)

Hardware / nVme PCIe (x4) vs Sata 3 ssd

I'm about to build a workstation with 2x Xeon 2699 v3 and i would like some input regarding storage. My options are either go to Samsung 850 Evo (SATA3) 1TB or go to Samsung 950 Pro 512GB (nvme Pcie x4).

My question is: is there ANY real difference in opening large 3ds max files between the two hard drives? I know that large file transfers benefit the M.2 nvme but my interest is to speed up large 3ds max file opening and if M.2 pcie x4 doesn't cut it i won't invest in a specific motherboard with support for M.2 pci2 (x4).

If i go the SSD Sata3 route the motherboard would be the Asus Z10PA-D8.
If i go the M.2 pcie x4 route the motherboard would be the Asus Z10PE-D8 WS.

Has anyone tested this?

So, no render region in the extended viewport as well right? I bought Corona just now to see this feature... bummer! :) Should have read the thread before.

Many thanks for the reply romullus! I assume this is already present in the Release candidate 1?

Is this feature already implemented in v1.2 Ondra?
