I have an employee who is looking to do a 4-way GPU with a GTX 1080/1070, however, I heard that NVIDIA no longer allows 4 GPU SLI.
Here are the specs they are asking for:
Motherboard: ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS
CPUs (x2) Xeon E5-2630 v5
CPU cooling (x2) Dynatron R17
RAM Samsung, Micron, or Kingston from manufacturer-approved list, 4 or 8 x 32 GB
GPU (x4) NVIDIA GTX 1070 or 1080, depending on funding, Gigabyte, EVGA, etc. depending on
availability, dual or triple fan.
Agisoft Photoscan is specialized, processing intensive software that utilizes structure-from-motion (SfM) techniques and which we use extensively in student research and classes. Processing with Photoscan is a multi-step process. Of the steps, two are particularly intensive: camera alignment and dense cloud construction. The camera alignment step runs exclusively on CPUs, typically takes tens of minutes to 40 hours, and is fairly efficient at multithreading. Dense cloud construction benefits greatly from GPU acceleration and typically takes hours to days. Without GPU acceleration, dense cloud construction is not feasible for anything but very small models. Photoscan uses single precision only with GPU acceleration, and it is very efficient at utilizing multiple GPUs.
Can you help me out and let me know if this is something that is compatible, and if not what options are out there?
