Maqina Workstations & Benchmarks

Posted in Blender Institute, Development by campbell Saturday, January 5th, 2008

So far our workstations haven’t been mentioned much, partly because it’s not as fun as furry animals but also because they don’t break down!

Now the artists are working hard and don’t want to “waste time” blogging, I’ll go into some details about our workstations.


At the moment we have 8 workstations…

5x Maqina C6850DC 3D Blender Workstation’s
(Dual Core 3ghz, 4gig ram, GeForce 8800 GTS)

2x Maqina X5130DC Workstation’s
(Quad Core 2ghz, 4gig ram, NVidia Quadro FX 1700)

1x Maqina X5345QC Workstation
(8 Core 2.33ghz, 8gig ram, NVidia Quadro FX 1700)
