I need to upgrade the workstation used by future pix4d operator and I have a couple of questions.
Nvidia QUADRO K2100
With this configuration latest job (about 800 images) was completed in about 5 hours
The person will frequently travel but we’re evaluating to move to a desktop workstation in order to get better and faster resutls. Here the proposed HP Workstation Z640 E5-2630v4 with 64Gb RAM (portability will be solved with an additional laptop)
GPU we have in the list a K2200 or M4000 or maybe a TITAN
Approx how much faster we could expect to get results compared to a new laptop configuration:
ThinkPad P51 20HH-001R i7-7820HQ 2x8GB NVME SSD 512GB (upgraded to 32/64Gb)
If we proceed with a workstations with options could give us best benefits?
additional xeon processor
got the faster GPU (M4000?)
Both configuration will be upgraded to at least 1TB SSD disk
Latest question: if we downgrade to a slower xeon proc. (16…) we lost a lot in term of performances (same RAM and GPU)?
Thanks in advance.
