Render Farm for Sale!

Posted: July 18, 2011
I have a 4-Node-(32 Core)-RENDER FARM for sale. I had an animation studio that I am closing and I would like to sell our farm.

These are amazingly fast reliable units. It used to take over an hour to render each frame of our animations but if you use Mental Ray with Combustion they are lightning fast at about 8 to 10 minutes per frame. A super high rez single frame renders in about 15 minutes. We would set up a scene at the end of the day and it would be ready to preview by morning- AWESOME!!! It really made or deadlines less stressful.

These were custom built to higher specs than BOXX's-2XQuadCore-RenderBOXX:

Motherboard- Super Micro Computers-MBD-X&DCL-1

Processors- 2ea- Xeon Quad Core Processers 2.5 GHz

Memory- Kingston-2ea 2GB

Hard Drive- Western Digital - 80gig


Operating System: Microsoft - MS SP Pro-X64-Special

Also included is a LinksKey 8-Port KVM Switch and cables- This allows you to switch and monitor the progress on all four nodes from a single Monitor.

These are wonderful units and cost about 14k when new.

We are asking $6800 for all four nodes which includes shipping
