My setup consists of a Mac for modelling and Linux box using your docker to render. This works well but I'm hitting a wall with render times - the render-box is currently CPU only and has a Ryzen 7 3700X (8-Core @ 3600 MHz). My render times a currently up to around 3 minutes per frame, which is an eternity for animations. Being new to Blender and Crowd-Render I just wanted to check what the pros and cons are with CPU v's GPU? On the face on it, it looks like I should just buy a RTX 2070 and add it to my render box, but I wanted to check to see if I'm missing anything - I'm pretty new to 3D.

Hi Guys I've been playing around with the free version of CR for a couple of days (thank you - it's amazing for us Mac users) and I've found it to be quite hit and miss on my setup, Mac for modelling and Linux box with the docker for rendering. When it works it's brilliant, but quite often it just refuses to see the 2nd box despite me feeding it the IP address (all on a fast wired LAN). I was wondering if the newer versions for sponsors fixed any of this but I can't find a change log anywhere. Can you point me in the right direction? Many thanks
