Evolution Of Machine by montag451 Evolution Of Machine by montag451
Created with Mandelbulb 3D, post-processing done with IrfanView; I found this to be a wonderful image to work with and one which inspired me to title it for the Machine Series once completed...enjoy! :-)

Hey--thanks a lot for the comment! And with my new Acer Quad-Core 2.6GHz...it really doesn't take very long at long to render images such as this. A good investment, I think...cheers! :-)

Nice :D
Sadly my home computer I can't do much with =\ it's an old AMD Athlon XP 2600 with a graphics card that can't even handle DirectX 9 =(

If I could use that crappy old thing, it would takes MONTHS to render this xD

Well, I can only suggest your saving up patiently as I did for a stronger machine and quad-core is the best way to go, as far as I'm concerned. And trust me, you will NOT be disappointed with the results!

Good to know :noes:
How much did something like that cost you?

Render times must be through the roof...

Nope--render times are not long at all...my new Acer quad-core 2.6GHz machine takes only a fraction of the time it might take with a P4 for example. A good investment, I think!

Rendering fractals is not like rendering traditional 3d I guess... My render times can take up to 10hrs for a single frame and I have a I7 hexa-core @ 2.8Ghz... And yes, powerful PCs are a good investment :p

Well, I still have my Pentium 4 computer and will try Mandelbulb 3D on it, just to see what happens--if anything at all, that is! ;-) I almost bought a dual-core machine but decided to spend a bit more and got the quad-core which seems to have been the best bet. But I waited patiently for a long time, saving up money for the Quad. And I'm only having a chance now after many weeks to really get rolling with some of the more demanding 3D graphics programs which are out there. But the whole thing is just great and I certainly recommend your getting a stronger PC for...2011!?
