Why is this the best C4D build?

Strongbox test software 24/7/365 both in our lab and on customer workflows in situ and we know which components work best with C4D.

Cinema 4D uses a series of design tasks including creating, modifying, and animating 3D models but is only able to utilize a single CPU core which makes a high frequency CPU an ideal choice for these tasks.

However, the rendering capabilities built into Cinema 4D – along with other CPU based rendering engines likes Arnold, Mental Ray and V-Ray are very efficient at utilizing a high number of cores.

In fact, most of these engines scale almost perfectly… which makes a CPU with twice the number of cores nearly twice as fast (assuming similar clock speeds). Dual processors have lower clock speeds and aren’t ideal for workstations where modeling is a core part of the workflow so Dual Xeon’s are out.

The answer is to use the AMD Threadripper 3990X 2.9GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) 64 Core  which is a fantastic choice for workstations that are focused on rendering performance. The good single-threaded speed means these CPU’s also do well with modeling and animation,  All three of the 3rd-gen Threadrippers are great, but the 3990X has the most so the ebest great for Cinema 4D!

Pure Threadripper Power

Professional content creators can now leverage the fastest, most versatile workstation processor ever created with unmatched core counts for multi-threaded workloads that rival competing dual socket solutions and high frequency single threaded performance for lightly threaded tasks. This unique, full spectrum compute capability means reducedrender times, more creative iterations, rapid simulation solving, quick assembly rebuilds and smooth interactivity with 3D assets. Designed to let artists, architects, animators, and engineers multitask and get more done in less time.

Ideal Processors for 3D Modeling and Animation

3D modeling and animation is a common task in any visual effects production. Bringing complicated 3D assets to life onscreen is a tedious process. From a compute perspective, 3D modeling and animation are lightly threaded tasks and benefit from CPUs with higher frequencies which can help with better viewport frame rates and scene interaction.

If you wish to accommodate secondary multi-threaded tasks in your workflow, like rendering and simulation, find the best balance of high core count and high clock speed
