I usually use "Mac pro 2016" and "window computer at my office" to code on Matlab. I would like to get some GPU power to implement some of my reconstruction idea for medical image reconstruction.
I do plan to use L-BFGS-B solver, which takes 90% of my computation time. Using CPU, it takes 14-15 hours.With implementation of the new idea, I expect computation time to go by 2-3 times.
I have no idea about GPU programming. So, I would appreciate some advice from some GPU programmer. I have budget of $1300-1400.
i) Would it be possible to buy some dedicated NVIDIA card and use it for Mac and/or PC? Could I get more GPU power this way. ii) Should I go for some gaming laptop with "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics with 6GB GDDR5 VRAM"?
