AMD Ryzen and Vue

Post by kenmojr » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:43 pm

Reading the specs for Vue and it seems e-onsoftware prefer Intel over AMD due to AVX support.

I would like to upgrade my present I7-4770S to a newer cpu. Preferably 6 or 8 core with hyperthreading, giving 12 or 16 threads.

Ryzen 5 and 7 CPUs seem to be favorably priced but I am concerned about issues with Vue and Photoshop/Lightroom.

A 3rd gen Ryzen - R5 3600 (6 core/12 threads - 3.6 ghz) and a 2nd gen Ryzen - R7 2700 (8 core/16 threads - 3.2 ghz) are within my budget.

Presently I am doing more photography work (Photoshop/Lightroom) then 3D (Vue Creator, MOI3D, DAZ Studio, 3DCoat).

Anyone here using a Ryzen cpu and how has your experience and performance been?
Any thoughts on the R5-3600 vs R7-2700?

From e-onsoftware site:

Recommended System Specs

Windows 64 bit (Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10), Mac OS X v10.13+,
Multi-core CPU (Intel QuadCore, Core I7, or Mac Pro), AVX compliant,
8GB+ of RAM,
4GB+ of free Hard Disk space (on the drive hosting the OS),
We recommend a graphics card containing at least 4 GB of VRAM with a 3D Mark score of 10,000 or better.

Thanks kindly

I have a threadripper with 32 threads and it works very good with Vue ( as far as I know the chip architecture of Ryzen is the same as for Threaripper)
So I woulg go with AMD since you get better value for the money, before I only had Intel, but I don't regret the switch to AMD. As for GPU, there Nvidia is a bit better with things like Optix Denoiser ( but that is not integrated yet in Vue)

I used AMD Ryzen with Vue/Photoshop and have some graphic issues. However, I have now different graphic issues with Intel / Nvidia RTX. I think it is a conspiracy.
