High-end Build Components

For applications where low processing times and large datasets require the use of high-end workstations, there are high-end components that have proven to work better than others in most cases. An ideal high-end workstation provides balanced resources to avoid bottlenecks that slow the system down overall. Below are some of the components which have performed well with Pix4D.

CPU

  • Core i7 8700K (Good)
  • Ryzen 9 5950x  (Better)
  • AMD Threadripper 3970X 32-core (Best)

GPU

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (Good)
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Better)
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 ti (Best)
Further information:
  • An SSD hard drive can speed up processing.
  • The graphics card may have an improvement on the processing speed for step 1 if the graphics card is compatible with CUDA (NVIDIA Graphic Cards). Processing time of step 2 and step 3 are not affected by the GPU. The GPU also helps considerably with rayCloud visualization.

    I Completed the Ground School Training and exam with Survey Drones Ireland and then completed the Flight Test. I found the instructor very helpful during the duration of the course and he covered everything and after the course and exams he was still very helpful and I would highly recommend Survey Drones Ireland.

    Two of our operators completed the Ground School Training and exam with Survey Drones Ireland. We then followed up by completed the Flight Test and some Pix4D training. I found Wayne very knowledgeable on all aspects and could get the information across in a straight forward easy to learn manner. I would highly recommend Survey Drones Ireland for any training needs, and we will be using them again in the future.

    I would like to to take this opportunity to thank Survey Drones Ireland for providing the drone flight school course online, for me it was a renewal. The fact the course this time, was online and not in a classroom environment for me it was a bonus, I could attend in the comfort of my own home, no stressing with Dublin traffic and nobody had to worry about social distancing. The course was delivered with great professionalism with many practical examples and advice. It certainly didn’t feel as if he was sitting in a room on his own talking to a screen, he encouraged plenty of interaction making people feel part of the course not just a student watching an online course.

    Wayne is a wealth knowledge of the industry, he has a passion for everyone to succeed and be SAFE. What he’s learned in his years, he’s more than willing to share. He also encourages people to contact him after the course if the need any advice. I would certainly recommend Survey Drones course to anyone, professionals and hobbiest alike.

    “I completed the Ground School Training with Survey Drones Ireland in the middle of a COVID-19 lockdown, through an online classroom setting. While I thought the online setting might be a bit ‘cold’ it actually wasn’t, it worked very well and there was good interaction encouraged, plus I had the added bonus of a very short commute to my home office. It was great to get Wayne’s insights into the multi-faceted aspects of drone flying, and his wealth of experience was obvious. The follow up afterwards has also been terrific. Highly recommend. I think it works much better when everyone keeps their cameras on while the training is ongoing.” – Aidan Fidgeon, Dublin Airport – 18 November 2020.
