Required Hardware*

(* Recommended )

Tachyon, Wormhole or Dark Energy for Transcoders:


  • GPU Minimum – NVIDIA Maxwel Class
  • GPU Optimal – NVIDIA Titan RTX, Quadro RTX8000, Tesla T4, Tesla V100
Notes – Card must be placed into TCC mode

RadiantGrid


  • CPU Minimum – E5 V2 Family, 8 Cores, 2.6 GHz
  • CPU Optimal – Intel Xeon Scalable Gold 6154/6254
  • Memory – 32 Gig per processor, fastest supported, single rank configuration
  • Render Drives:
    • Primarily HD:  4 TB SSD [i.e. 4x1TB Samsung EVO 860, RAID 0]
    • Primarily UHD: 8 TB SSD [i.e. 4x2TB Samsung EVO 860, RAID 0]
  • OS/App Drives – 500 GB [i.e. 2x500GB Samsung EVO 860, RAID 1]
  • Network connectivity – 10 Gig E

Dark Energy Professional


GPU:

  • Minimum – NVIDIA Maxwell Class
  • Optimal – NVIDIA Titan RTX, Quadro RTX8000, Tesla T4, Tesla V100
Notes – Card must be placed into TCC mode

Display card:

  • Minimum – NVIDIA Maxwell Class
  • Optimal – NVIDIA Quadro p4000/p2000
Notes – Card must be placed in WDDM mode, Pascal series display card is required for Pascal/Volta/Turing series GPU

CPU:

  • Minimum:  E5 V2 Family, 8 Cores, 2.6 GHz
  • Optimal:  Intel Xeon Scalable Gold 6154/6254

Memory:

  • Primarily HD/2K – 16 Gig, ECC, Registered (Buffered), Single/Dual Rank
  • Primarily UHD/4K – 48 Gig, ECC, Registered (Buffered), Single/Dual Rank
Notes – Higher quantity of memory will provide longer real-time caching of images for playback. The higher the resolution, the less time will be available for playback for a given amount of memory.  It is not uncommon for workstations to have 128 Gig for 2K workflows and 256 Gig for 4K workflows.

Network I/O:

  • Minimum – 2 Gig FC, 1 Gig-E
  • Optimal – 8/16 Gig FC, 10 Gig-E

Drive Throughput:

  • Minimum – HD/2K or less: 300 MB/s.  Greater than 2K: 600 MB/s
  • Optimal – HD/2K or less: 600 MB/s.  Greater than 2K: 1.2 GB/s
Notes – Minimum specification should perform at 12-18 FPS, Optimal specification should perform at 20-24 FPS.  Uncompressed files are quite large, size these drives appropriately.  For full motion pictures, an ideal setup would be 6 x 2 TB Samsung EVO 860 drives.
