    Intriguing, but I wonder how much R3D workflows would truly benefit? Most of the computational bottleneck is the processing itself, but this does raise some interesting possibilities for shared data sets within each GPU pair.

    Good find L,

    I like the HPC and workstation pages. Looks like they do a lot of interesting technology.

    No prices. Even a Ryxen workstation.

    -Since when has denying that the possible is possible been reason? Such is the life of some skepticism.
    -Normalcy involves what is realistically possible, not just what you say.

    Combined with the right storage and memory tech, a great deal. We've already seen 8K 90FPS just from moving the raw video files to NVME storage that is directly connected to the GPU for processing functions, bypassing the CPU. That was with older tech, so what's possible with the stuff right around the corner is certainly much better, when you factor in HBM, more efficient/faster 3D memory storage options, and newer GPUs. Toss in some form of CPU-GPU connectivity like NVLink and you're gonna redefine the workflow, once the software catches up. Unfortunately, this is all bleeding edge tech that is incredibly expensive and not all the pieces fit together at the low-end yet, so only the big boys with fat wallets can afford it for the foreseeable future. If Jarred ever gets it in his head to try and build a RED Monster, for 8K 3D or 10K 65mm or whatever he's got baking in the oven for next-gen, he'll have plenty of excitement to look forward to with what's going to be available in HPC.

    He's got into his head to reduce the price of Red Rocket, a lot, and commercialise it widely outside red workflow. A little bit of receding, he has a vehicle. The only reason to go GPU is cheap convenience, but the thing offers that without the house specific parts.

    Thanks L, this us more towards my line if thinking rather than all the 'but' 'can't' stuff.
