    Keyshot is a great option, but is only cpu base and need an extra licence
    visualize is offer by solidworks, come basic with solidworks profesional and premium
    Offering an hybrid redering CPU + GPU, GPU being away faster than CPU rendering, you will be able to find an speed test and how to use visualize in this link:

    Keyshot is a great program, and its easy to work with.
    Autodesk 3ds max is amazing , but has a steep learning curve to it.

    I think that keyshot is your best bet.

    Both programs need to be bought first.
    Keyshot is around 1000 dollars , 3ds max is around 2000 each year.
    So for rendering only i would suggest keyshot since its allot cheaper and more user friendly.
    You can try keyshot first with this link :

    As for how to use it.
    I would just search some random tutorials on youtube and try it out yourself.
    This i just a simple example video :

    Try Fusion 360 by Autodesk; You make the renderings in the cloud and doesn't be necessary a good PC to make them.
