Best computer/workstation set-up

Postby matthewlee » Sat Oct 31, 2015 5:47 pm

Hi

Im curious about how to improve the speed on David via computer hardware. I have AMD FX-8350 eight core processor and Nvidia Quadro 500 GPU and 32 gb ram.
Is there specifics to David software that could be addressed/improved by computer hardware?
For example, if I got a Nvidia Tesla card and could use CUDA cores?

Any help would be great
Thanks

Your computer is more than fast enough. Are you talking scanning speed or the speed while processing/aligning scan data?

the pc listed above seems like its about as good as one can get without torching large sums of money.



I have a desktop that I'd be very happy with performance on, but i'd like to be able to use a laptop to do the capturing... How well would a laptop with the following specs work with the SLS-3?
SSD Hard Drive
i7 Skylake, 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-6600U
NVIDIA 8M Graphics, 1gb DDR5 (similar to 940M)
8 gb ram
USB 3.0

That is easy math, more power = faster alignment and fusion. You have to see how big is your budget, try to check some CPU and GFX benchmarks.
From time to time I check this one here:
