I have swapped in a new motherboard/CPUs/memory in my computer to speed up the process of panomaking :) Life is to short to wait for stitching and rendering.

Asus Z9PE-D16 motherboard
2 pcs Xeon E5-2660
16 pcs Kingston 8GB RAM

The mobo take 16 DIMMs and I thought populating them with 8GB sticks for 128GB RAM would make me happy for a while.
That was until I see APG eat 103GB RAM to keep four spheres in memory !! see image below.

It's pleasure though to see 32 cores work @100% for me :)

If you can post a rendering log for a big panorama, it would be nice to look at :)

I have started to learn how to run this computer, how to optimize my pano workflow.
Starting with my standard outdoor sphere setup: 92 images shot with a normal lens

I have loaded a single sphere into APG 3.63 and done two runs:
with antighost checked - 18min 34sec
no cutting - 6min 36sec
(this is no scientific test, I've been browsing the internet while rendering)

To my big surprise APG eat 75gig RAM with a single sphere !!

Bottom line for now:
It took me 12 hours hiking to get to this location, I can wait for 18 min for it to render :)
