Priority Plan

Machines are dedicated to your submission and will not be interrupted or reassigned


Priority Plan Calculator

Use the calculator that follows to estimate the total cost of your Priority Plan submission.  If you prefer to see our pricing in a table format, see HERE.

  • "Service Level" = the maximum concurrent machines count/submission (see "Max. Machines)"

  • "Machine-Hour Cost (USD)" = the cost of running  one machine for one hour

  • "Est. Time (hh:mm:ss)" = Elapsed time in hours:minutes:sec to complete the submission

  • "Est. Cost (Credits)" = cost estimate (in GridMarkets credits)​

 
 



How to Find Your Average Render Time per Frame

  1. Enter your preferences for "Service", "Renderer" and "Machine".

  2. Submit 5 to 10 representative frames.

  3. Enter the average render time (see "Average Task Time"  in the screenshot example below) into "Ave. Render Time per frame (mins)".

  4. Enter the total number of frames in the "Frames" box.

  5. Hit "Calculate" to get your estimate.

* Costs are represented in $US/machine-hour.  We charge by the machine-second.  Costs are all inclusive (i.e. machine time; operating system and software licenses; data egress and 15 days of data storage are included).

"OB" refers to a machine's approximate Octane Benchmark performance used to deliver the service.

Note: To help balance its machine inventory, GridMarkets may run your submission on the performance equivalent of your machine selection. Your project costs and performance will not be impacted in such cases.
