Hi, need to upgrade elaboration speed of thermal image processing to render 3d ortho and thermal representation.
I’m with the idea to buy a big dell poweredge with an important xeon CPU, after I saw GPU is not used to much in elaboration… I’m in something wrong? There are some better solutions? Thank you for the help.
It is tough to give you a straightforward answer. The performance of the processing depends on many different factors and only once tested, we could give you an honest answer. I highly recommend you reading our article Hardware and Pix4D and https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/202559519-Hardware-components-usage-when-processing-with-Pix4Dfirst. You’ll learn a lot about all the factors. Also, you find a link to a tool with which you will be able to compare base processing speed between similar builds and components. I would also suggest having a look also in the articles below:
Review this article from Puget Systems as well as their other Pix4D articles. It will tell you everything you need to know. I would not get a Xeon CPU. AMD Ryzen or Threadripper processors are much faster / cheaper than Xeon for Pix4D Mapper. A mid-level nVidia RTX 3000 series GPU would be sufficient as well.
