Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I want build a new PC for my new UE Project and i need help

My project should be a "open world turn based rpg" that means my pc will build the large map often and i will use blender, iclone and more at the same time. And of course 4k textures.

I will use:

Zotac 1070 extreme edition 32 GB Ram ( because it turned out 16 gb weren't enough for my last project ) 1 TB Samsung SSD

And for CPU i was thinking about AMD Threadripper but i am not sure which one

So the main question is which CPU can save me some time if it comes to build lighting and so on.

Product Version: UE 4.19

Well considering I have a similar build (even the ram), and more cores will help with light building, so your looking at 16 threads for around $450, then 24 threads for $700, and the top at 32 threads for $800 (price reference, Newegg). So If you don't plan to distribute the light building with swarm, then its a budget question. Performance will be great on all of these in the editor, so the only thing your doing is decreasing your light build times. So ask yourself, "how much is that build time worth". If your working on personal projects I say cut the cores and save the cash, just get the 1900x. But if you work on large projects, and build a lot then just go for the 1950x. Or you could just get a small server, and use that for the light building, because more cores/ram is the take of the cake with build times.
