If money is no option, go to any computer supplier and add the latest, fastest chip with as much memory as the machine will take and l large SSD. Install 64-bit windows on it and BAM.

money no option, wait till Q2, then get one or more of these.

drop a bunch of them on a multi-processor motherboard for maximum effect. intel can advise the optimal configuration.

then liquid nitrogen cool and overclock the fuck out of it.

the core of max (the viewport/ui) is single threaded. multiple processor cores accelerate raytracing.


keeping it within a realistic budget that doesn't require funding by some oil sheik, try something like this :

switch to a fast ssd drive & faster graphics card if your budget can handle it.

amd have the fastest gpu at the moment afaik.
