Intel’s 12th Gen Core desktop processors launched toward the end of 2021, as did Windows 11, making this a great time to do a roundup looking at CPU performance in Pix4D across a wide range of different processor lines. How does Intel’s new Core i9 12900K stack up against AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series, Threadripper, and Threadripper Pro chips – as well as Intel’s own 11th Gen Core, Xeon W, and Core X Series?
NVIDIA Lite Hash Rate GPU Performance
In an attempt to make their GeForce line of consumer video cards less appealing to crypto miners, NVIDIA has updated many of their GPUs with “lite hash rate” versions. These are supposed to reduce effectiveness for mining of currencies like Etherium by about 50%, without impacting game performance or other applications, but to be sure of that we put a pair of GeForce RTX 3070 cards – one with LHR and one without – to the test.
Best Workstation PC for Pix4D (Winter 2020)
What are the best specifications for a Pix4D photogrammetry workstation at the end of 2020 and going into the start of a new year?
Pix4D 4.5.6: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Performance
AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors have launched, with their updated Zen 3 microarchitecture bringing substantial performance improvements over the previous generation. How does this update impact processing times in Pix4D, and how do the new CPUs it stack up against other AMD and Intel models?
Pix4D 4.5.6 – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, 3080 & 3090 Performance
The first cards in NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series launched earlier this fall, and now the RTX 3070 has finally joined its bigger siblings. How does it compare to the RTX 3080 and 3090? And how do they all fare against the previous generation of GeForce and Titan cards? In this article we take a look at how these all stack up in Pix4D.
Pix4D 4.5.6 – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 & 3090 Performance
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series cards are here, with NVIDIA boasting significant performance gains over the previous generation. The RTX 3080 launched last week, and now with the RTX 3090 released today we can compare these models to each other as well as the older 20 Series find out how large those gains are in photogrammetry applications like Pix4D.
Pix4D 4.5.6 – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Performance
The RTX 3000 series cards are here, with NVIDIA boasting significant performance gains over the previous generation. With the RTX 3080 now launched, we can find out how large those gains are in photogrammetry applications like Pix4D.
Ryzen XT and Core i9 10850K for Photogrammetry: Are They Worth It?
AMD and Intel have both released small revisions to their latest-gen consumer CPU lines, in the form of the Ryzen XT models and Core i9 10850K. On paper these appear to be identical to current products except for very slight adjustments in clock speed, but how do they stack up in real-world photogrammetry applications?
Pix4D 4.5.6 HT / SMT Performance Analysis
We’ve observed that some photogrammetry applications seem to perform better with lower core count processors, so we wanted to look at whether Hyperthreading and Simultaneous Multithreading could be negatively impacting performance in these programs. Next up is Pix4Dmapper.
