Redshift does not require much CPU power, and users will want a CPU that is powerful enough so as not to cause a bottleneck for the GPU.
Redshift is a GPU renderer that can make use of multiple GPUs, so you should also make sure your CPU has enough PCIe lanes for each graphics card.
Not all user workflows are the same, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.
The amount of memory you will need depends on how many programs you will have open at any given time alongside Redshift, and how large the files are that you will be working with.
A good starting point in deciding how much RAM you should go for would be to check your current usage via Windows Task Manager.
Graphics processing power is the most important factor for performance in Redshift. Performance is affected by GPU speed, VRAM, and number of GPUs.
While Quadro cards are not a requirement, higher end Quadro GPUs feature far more VRAM than GeForce cards.
You may want to consider starting with a single large and powerful card and adding a second one in later.
In the past, computers were held back by slow mechanical hard drives. Unless you are storing files which are not accessed too often, in which case mechanical hard drives might be a better choice, Solid State drives should be used for everything else. Having everything stored on SSDs means you’ll be able to copy, move, open and save files quickly and PC and program start times will be reduced.
