Linux - Hardware and Distribution - what is the right choice
« on: September 13, 2018, 12:08:08 PM »
Hello,
I have the chance to set up a new machine, only for Photoscan.
In my personal experience with linux and hardware is, that - at least opensource software - is very often much more performant on linux hardware than on Win7.

I am no kind of specialist in these questions, but my plan are about the following:
- dual xeon workstation
- ram as much we can afford (its quiet expensive at the moment)
- card grafic, thats tricky, need to run proprietary drivers (no problem) but is it here the same difference, that photoscan runs better on gaming cards, then on professional cards like nvidia quadro?

Linux - Ubuntu? Or rather a pure Debian.

thanks for your suggestions
Marcus

I am also setting up a stand alone system. I have a Poweredge R710 to use with dual cpu xeon. Up to 6 cores each and 3.3 MHZ. Please let me know if you get some answers. Currently use a Z440 4 core 3 MHZ.
