OpenCV and NVidia Cards: How to use.

asked 2017-05-04 20:44:15 -0600


I am looking to more information about hardware performance with NVIDA Cards for Computing Vision. For example: GTX vs Quadro vs Tesla, or GTX SLI vs GTX. How to use? There are many information and reviews about game applications, no to OpenCV/Computing Vision. Can I assume that if it is good for game it is good for OpenCV/Computing Vision too? Thanks!

The graphic cards used in research or in industry are different from those for games because they don't have the same interfaces. For research we use a GPU that has a CPU and graphic cards but also a camera and many other inputs outputs.. Those cards work independently from the computer and they have their own OS.. so easy to work with when developing your application.

Hi, Can you share some of those models? We will have a system with 15 cameras FullHD to processing in real time. We have tested the system with NVidia GTX cards and normal PCs, but we are looking for minimize the amount of PCs to do it. Another thing is have a good relation of cost and benefity. If you have any suggestions, we will thanks.

The one that I'm familiar with is Jetson TX1 or TX2 of Nvidia. It's not very expensive, however I don't know what kind of processing you'll do with 15 caméras because 15 FullHD is quite big number!
