Instructions for choosing a CPU for PC do professional graphics

There is a story that sounds easy, but many people hesitate when choosing to buy a computer configuration, they should choose the right CPU for their job, especially as professional graphics. So should we choose Ryzen CPU or Intel? Hoang Ha PC would like to advise you on the most effective, easiest and suitable factors for choosing a CPU for each person.

To begin with, let's understand a little bit about what a CPU is.

CPU is abbreviated as Central Processing Unit, or data processing center, or to put it simply that is the brain that controls most of the remaining components in a computer.

Basically important parameters such as the core number (Core), the number of threads or clock speed (GHz) and the cache (Cache) are pre-written by manufacturers on each product to evaluate their performance. .

Which factors help you choose an effective CPU for graphics?

The answer depends on the specialized graphics software that you use as well as your real needs. Because the software will decide whether the CPU will handle a single task or multi-core at the same time.

Take a specific example: In the same computer configuration other than the CPU, if the basic calculation with the CPU has 1 core clocked at 5GHz, it will be compatible with a 2-core CPU clocked at 2.5GHz. So the more cores CPU, the more beneficial, right?

However, most of today's software uses a single core to work with and is not coded in a way that handles multiple cores. For example, the Adobe Premiere software many brothers running Intel Core i9 9900K are very smooth when Preview 4K 60FPS, but when using the Ryzen 9 3900X, it is not equal despite the problem based on the Ryzen 9 3900X parameters.

In other words, if you have a 4-core 5GHz CPU, it will definitely be much faster in graphic design if compared to a 32-core CPU, but the clock speed is only 2GHz.

Intel CPUs will Preview smoother than AMD CPUs

So for brothers who want to be smoother in the graphic design process like Preview Adobe Premiere, it is clear that Intel's CPU, especially the K series with the base clock and high turbo, will bring more advantages. Hoang Ha PC would like to advise the following CPU products:

Product link: Intel Core i7 10700K

Product link: Intel Core i9 10900K

So does the multiplier have any effect in the process of making graphics?

The answer is yes, the multiplier and the flow will have a huge impact on the render factor or "rendering graphics" is the most important step to creating quality products with beautiful graphics.

To learn more carefully what Render is you can see here

Essentially the Software will exploit the full power of the CPU, Memory and other hardware resources to create the end product. Render process will take a lot of time and if you have problems such as power outages, you will have to render from scratch. So to be able to speed up rendering, it is necessary to invest in expensive CPUs.

Take a specific example: The same price, we will have 2 options: Intel Core i9 10900K with 10 cores 20 threads and Ryzen 9 3950X with up to 16 cores and 32 threads, Intel Core i9 10900K clock speed 5.3GHz and Ryzen 9 3950X just 4.7GHz. If based on the problem at the beginning, then 10 x 5.3 would be no more than 16 x 4.7. Because the product creation process needs to exploit the entire CPU core to render the file (Render file). It turns out that the Ryzen 9 3950X will outperform the Intel Core i9 10900K during rendering.

Hoang Ha PC did a comparison table Render VRay and Adobe Premiere speed between CPUs to help you have a clearer view. Also select CPU for Render you can refer to the following CPUs with Render criteria and reasonable price. AMD products will dominate with more cores and threads in the price range.

Product link: Ryzen 9 3900X

Product link: Ryzen 9 3950X

After looking at the comparison table, you probably know the CPU is the current boss, right, AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X with 64 cores and 12 threads and CPU up to 4.5GHz. It's really hard no CPU can compete with this product from AMD, but its price is not pleasant at all. You can refer to the product below:

Product Link: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X

In the case of the CPU with the same core and thread and you are hesitant about what to buy to optimize the render, Hoang Ha advises you to prioritize the higher clock speed to help optimize the render time. This is shown by comparing the 3800XT and 3800X that Hoang Ha has tested.

In addition, Hoang Ha PC also tested the Ryzen 3700X CPU with 2666MHz and 3200MHz Bus Ram with a V-ray file. The results show that the render speed will also be improved when the brothers use higher Bus on Ryzen CPUs. In theory, the file transfer data between CPU and RAM will be faster thanks to increased bandwidth (Bandwidth). So you should also consider carefully before buying RAM. The configurations of Hoang Ha PC are mostly equipped with 3200MHz RAM Bus as well as most suitable for the CPU to avoid the green screen dump rate during Render, you can rest assured when using the configuration of Hoang Ha PC. Please.


With what I said above, to balance both design and rendering (Render) will be very difficult so if you really want a good CPU, do not hesitate to spend money choosing an expensive CPU. . That will save a lot of time for you to work especially in today's fast technology need.
