Blackbyrde Posted September 19, 2016 Report Share Posted September 19, 2016 I just purchased a new 15-inch MacBook Pro (Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, AMD Radeon graphics processor), thinking that it would give me much better Agisoft Photoscan processing times than my old 2010 MacBook Pro and should be about the same as a PC laptop with the same approximate specs. I've found, though, that whether I'm running models on Mac OS X or on Windows using Parallels, it wants over 40 hours to run the dense cloud for a model with 75 cameras. I've run models with similar and greater numbers of cameras in 3-6 hours on the Surface Book with i7 processor and discrete graphics, and I'm wondering why the difference is so great. I know that a custom desktop rig would be better all around for this, and that I may need to disable a processor core to take advantage of the graphics card. Given the limitations of these platforms, though, with everything else being equal, why would the Mac be performing so poorly? Do I need to switch platforms?
