Pricing explained


Price/Node

Example scenario
50x 1h long frames
50x nodes render all 50 frames in 1hr time

Cost breakdown
50 nodes x the priority rate = price
appx. $22.5 Low|$45 Medium|$90 High

Price/Ghz

Price per Ghz hour is a precise representation of the rendering cost. It is a price for 1 Ghz used for an hour of rendering.

Example scenario
A node with two 2.66 GHz 6 cores CPU’s rendering for 1 hour uses ~32 GHz per hour
Cost = $0.48 Low|$0.96 Med|$1.92 High

Types of nodes

Fast
They are twice as fast and consume more electricity
Energy efficient
Slower but more energy efficient nodes.

Ghz rate is the same for both types of nodes regardless of the node in use, the only difference is that one renders faster than the other.
