Perhaps that got your attention?
Now, I’m looking for a rendering machine for the office to handle all my Drone surveys etc.
It’s not graphics-heavy, so I don’t need some crazy GPU like a Quadro or AMD equivalent, but it is number heavy, so I need RAM.
Supposedly, the recommended specs for Pix4D are:
- Windows 10, 64 bits.
- CPU quad-core or hexa-core Intel i9/Threadripper/Ryzen 9/.
- GeForce GTX GPU compatible with OpenGL 3.2 and 2 GB RAM.
- Hard disk: SSD.
- Small projects (under 100 images at 14 MP): 8 GB RAM, 15 GB SSD Free Space.
- Medium projects (between 100 and 500 images at 14 MP): 16GB RAM, 30 GB SSD Free Space.
- Large projects (over 500- 1000 images at 14 MP): 32 GB RAM, 60 GB SSD Free Space.
- Very Large projects (1000 - 2000 images at 14 MP): 64 GB RAM, 120 GB SSD Free Space.
Generally, I work with projects in and around 800 images, but we are tackling larger things now and doing some side projects, where I would be capturing 1500+ images.
I’m trying to not break the bank with this as I also want Da Boss to approve a new drone on Thursday when the Mavic 3 gets announced.
I’ve found a couple of places with decent spec machines, but fuck me with a bacon-butty, they are pricey! Am I that out of touch that I can’t find or spec a decent rig any more???
This seems too good to be true:
Meaning it more than likely is.
Then when I look at specific build sites, they’re obscene money.
