My PC arrived the past Thursday. I've been busy reinstalling software, almost everything is on place again so I was able to run some tests.
First: exporting/importing complete scenes from Carrara8Pro... works like a charm, so I can continue working on all the ongoing projects in the new PC.
Second: Rendering times... a scene that my old computer rendered in 5 hours was rendered in 1 hour, the processor is not even over-clocked.
Third: gaming, I installed the most resource heavy games that I have with everything maxed out... runs nice and smooth, the gtx690 doesn't even blink. I think that I'll try Far Cry 3 next. Any other suggestions?
Fourth: The renders of the set with the priestess are finished but I still have to install/configure software for the post-work and other stuff so you'll have to wait a little longer.
Fifth: There's a new artist on the community: Zen, go check his blog at:
Pretty women with not so pretty guys... just how i like it :D
