Wow Ian, thanks for prompt response!

So the two options I mentioned have almost equal PI, indicating the 1600MHz EC11 would probably not outperform 1333 EC9, not by much anyway.
So, all in all, considering that 256GB allows for bigger projects than 128GB, I am now leaning towards the 256GB/1333.

Memory                                                           [GB]    PI     PI * GB / $      USD
Kingston DDR3 1600MHz ECC/REG 128GB EC11   128   145,5     8,6               2158
Kingston DDR3 1333MHz ECC/REG 256GB EC9     256   148,1     8,6               4432

I for sure will stay tuned for your upcoming tests.
Tom  :)

Ian,

I am really glad you included Photoscan in benchmarks on Anandtech! This is one of few pieces of software that can stress hardware in a number of interesting ways. And PS is getting more and more popular by the minute! :)
I am particularly interested in how memory speeds improve PS performance - it seems to be quite the bottleneck in some stages.
I am also curious to know if/whether full utilization of CPU and two GPUs at the same time causes enough thermal issues to result in throttling. I saw that Anand in his review of new Mac Pro, in order to fully saturate the hardware, had to run two programs (Furmark and Prime, and it DID cause slowdown), well now Photoscan alone could do the trick (Build Dense Point Cloud step). I can't wait to see whether Mac Pro's cooling solution is sufficient for Photoscan. And lastly, it would be great to see how does dual D700 compare in OpenCL performance to dual 7970s or 290s on regular PC builds.

Thanks Ian!

Latest update to these results.

Click the link to see breakdown:
http://anandtech.com/show/7752/msi-x79agd45-plus-review-building-up/7



I'm currently sitting here with a 12 core Xeon with 24 threads, 32GB DRAM 1600 C11, and it doesn't seem to be any faster than a 4960X.  This is because the single threaded speed of the Xeon is poor, and despite having 2x threads, is down 25% in MHz for the multithreaded stuff.  I will add these results on my Xeon article, coming soon (hopefully).

Some more results, including with 12/8 core Xeons:

Very interesting results.

Where can I download the same image set to test myself?

The samples on the agisoft page seem to be 31 & 32 images?

It's the Building Reconstruction set on http://www.agisoft.ru/tutorials/photoscan/

Thank you for sharing, Ian, Wishgranter and all of you.

Now I would like to share the benchmark of my recent workstation build.
ASUS Z9 P8 WS, 2* Xeon 2687 v2, 3* R9 290X, 1* Quadro K5000.
1333 MHz RDIMM CL9. Win 8.1 64



Interesting observation:
The Build Dense Cloud computing (82 sec) in the above table was done with all CPU cores deselected (0/32 CPU cores in the OpenCL preference).

Selecting the recommended 24/32 resulted in 94 seconds processing time.
Selecting 32/32 active cores resulted in 101 seconds processing time.

Thanx Mr Map, so its not only my Dual setup that have better results with all CPUs disabled.. on single CPUs seems that just few cores disabling get better results......

Hi @pjennes,
It would be interesting if you would also publish the associated GPU performances, ie samples per second, please.
Cheers / Tom

Code: [Select]
## parameters used:
## Align Photos: High, disabled, 40000
## Build Dense Cloud: Medium, Aggressive
## Build Model: Arbitrary, Dense, Interpolation=Enabled, Medium
