It is a "given" that to run Agisoft Photoscan you need a computer with a fair bit of computing power. I have found it difficult to discover exactly what is required as most online articles seem to lack depth and real world experience with the program. I have found some information on the Puget System website which may be of interest as they seem to be based on actual testing.






Hopefully there will be an update based on the new generation of GPU cards released in June 2016.




This is a commercial site and they are trying to help you purchase computers for them. I have no affiliation with them.

I was going to recommend the same page as Leszekp.  It only talks about memory requirements though.  Our experience is that all of RAM, Graphics card, and CPU speed come into play.  So you want to maximize all 3 (within your budget).  There are also services you can use for processing large data sets, and you might do your own alignment and optimization, then send out for building high or ultra high dense clouds and associated mesh.
