Ryzen OpenCL CPU drivers Aug. 20, 2017, 12:40 a.m.

I don't know much about this. I just built a 1950X and would be happy to test some things… as long as you can point me in the right direction. I don't know about OpenCl for CPU.

Build for Houdini - CPU or GPU based? Aug. 18, 2017, 2:13 p.m.

If you want to stay within Houdini and Render with Mantra CPU solution would be best in my opinion because you can use the CPU for rendering and simulations. Also as far as I know Houdini only uses one GPU with open CL so you would need one beastly GPU but then you would get no rendering bonus unless you render 3rd party.

More cores and more ram better performance and render time in houdini (using mantra and pyro and flip fluids?) Aug. 8, 2017, 7:08 p.m.

I preordered a 1950X and I am going with 128 gigs of RAM right out the gate. I remember issues with updating ram modules from a different lot. Just to be sure I contacted G.Skill and here was the reply.

Q: I am building a system with 64 Gigs of your Trident Z RGB with plans for purchasing another 64 gig Kit. Do I need to purchase then all from the same lot? OR is it fine to add it later, I want to start with a 4X16gb Kit and see how the workload goes.

A: Hello

Yes, ideally only a single kit of RAM should be used in each system. When using two separate kits, the rated specs are no longer guaranteed. Some times they may not work together at all, and other times you may need to run them at a lower speed. Neither of which we feel the user should do, especially when working on a high performance build.

Thank you
