System Upgrade Specs Recommendation?
« on: August 04, 2020, 10:35:29 PM »
Hello everyone,

After having spent some time using the Free Trial, I took the plunge and purchased the Standard Licence. Now I'm thinking of what I should upgrade first on my system.

I'm not too concerned about my processor, an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X. However right now I have 32 GB of RAM and an AMD 570 (generic 570), and can't decide which one should be upgraded first.

Which one would be more important to upgrade (and to what?)

Hello OutrageousBPLUS,

If major time of your processing pipeline is spent on image matching, depth maps generation procedure, depth maps based mesh generation and texture blending, I can suggest to consider upgrading GPU first. Adding the second GPU or purchasing more powerful GPU should speed up the mentioned stages.

When choosing new GPU consider number of CUDA cores / Shader processor units and estimated theoretical TFLOPs value for single precision calculations.

Upgrading RAM is only reasonable, if you are working with large datasets (like thousands of images).
