RAVE's XLR Photogrammetry Server Designed to Optimize Bentley Context Capture software and Other Intense Rendering Workloads

Introducing the RenderBEAST XLR

Designed for high-performance photogrammetry use, the RenderBEAST XLR is a specialized powerhouse rackmount designed to meet the rigorous demands of photogrammetry and 3D modeling by optimizing multi-node near real-time rendering and single-engine photogrammetry workloads.

Seamless System Architecture

The RenderBEAST XLR features a harmonious integration of CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and motherboard.  This seamless synergy ensures swift data access, uninterruped data flow, and system stability.

The system comes in a custom liquid-cooled, half-depth 4U chassis, prepared for the heaviest of photogrammetric workloads.  From GPU selection to a custom 3D printed heat shroud, every aspect has been meticulously designed with the client experience and workload in mind.

Virtualization for Enhanced Utilization

Early testing with photogrammetry workloads revealed that virtualization significantly enhances resource utilization. The systems combination of high clock-speeds and up to 64-cores powering up to eight high-performance VMs to deliver multi-tasking capabilities that can drastically reduce processing times.

The RenderBEAST XLR’s multi-node VM configuration can process extensive datasets in a fraction of the time compared to other systems.  It offers nearly a 70% reduction in processing time when using iTwin multi-engine reconstruction software.

Purpose-Built for Excellence

RenderBEAST XLR configurations range from single CPU/GPU up to 7 GPUs in a single chassis. Based on either the 13th Generation Core series of processors or the AMD Threadripper platform the RenderBEAST XLR stands as a testament to RAVE’s commitment to performance. With clock speeds up to 5+ GHz and up to 64 cores on a single CPU, the systems are well-equipped for both parallel workloads and multiple virtual machines.

The Importance of Hardware in Photogrammetry

RAVE’s XLR is not just another computer system; it’s a specialized rackmounted powerhouse designed to meet the rigorous demands of photogrammetry and 3D modeling.  Photogrammetry is the science and technology of obtaining reliable information about physical objects and the environment through the process of recording, measuring, and interpreting photographic images and patterns of electromagnetic radiant imagery and other phenomena. Photogrammetry is a computationally intensive process. The software’s ability to transform 2D images into detailed 3D models is heavily reliant on the computer’s hardware components.
