Hello, we are buying a ~$2k laptop for MATLAB stereo vision processing of dual 1920x1080 streams.
We will be doing real-time object detection with these cameras, ground truth database creation, and other processing tasks. Computer Vision is our main toolbox that we use and we want to know if getting a super high end GPU option is really necessary.
We are currently looking at laptop units with the i7 6700HQ @ 2.6GHz to 3.5GHz Max (4cores, 8threads), 16GB DDR4 RAM (enough?), and 512GB PCIe SSD as the base specs. We are however stuck on if we should get a laptop with the Nvidia 960M or the new mobile GTX 1060?
I know that MATLAB supports CUDA and uses acceleration for the image processing toolbox and various others.
I just don't know if the performance boost or acceleration it provides is enough to warrant getting a laptop with the new mobile GTX 1060 with 6GB VRAM? And if the VRAM of the GTX 960M 2GB vs 4GB matter to MATLAB. Even a 20% boost in general performance is enough for us to go with the GTX 1060 6GB. But we want to check with you all first.
I appreciate any help you may have and if you have suggestions.
