I had some trouble getting my pointcloud to fully render and it got slightly better with a more powerful laptop so my reasoning made me to think that if I ran my simulation on a powerful stationary it would be all good.
Problem is that on a i9-7900X 3.3GHz, GeForce 1080Ti and 30Gb of RAM with Windows 10 64bit it runs horribly.
Is there any know issues with PlantSim and Core i9 or something to explain this?
Thanks in advance
So you're saying that the performance got worse with a more powerful hardware?
The Core i9 CPU together with the GeForce should be an ideal configuration.
One important hint is to put the point cloud onto a SSD drive. Since point clouds are in the area of GBs the read performance from the hard disk is usually the most critical bottle neck.
I assume you are posting about the 3D performance.
To put the 3D performance in numbers.
Select the 3d window and press "F" to see the frames per second.
Yes, 3D performance is lacking. I get 3.5-4 fps when running the simulation and running a camerapath through the plant. The model is not large either, about 100 m^2 in total.
I find it wierd too that it doesnt perform as well as it should do with this much computing power behind it. Both PlantSim and the point cloud is located on a SSD drive and I'm getting 3,5-4 fps when running the sim and running my camerapath.
Can you tell me the file size of your point cloud?
I have a point cloud with 9GB file size and on my notebook (Core i7-6820HQ, NVidia Quadro M1000M, 1920x1080 screen resolution) I get a frame rate of ~23fps once the point cloud is fully loaded.
2-3 fps is too low
It should be roughly > 25 fps to get a non flickering move
I guess the graphics card is mainly designed / optimized for triangulated objects than points.
To be clear, I get a frame rate of ~23fps not ~2-3fps.
The pointcloud is on 213mb so cant be that either. Gonna have to look into it further but I thought I might as well check here if there were reported confirmed issues with the Kaby Lake architechture or something along those lines.
Thanks for all the responses
