I’ve started recently to use “Ilastik” and… I’m impressed. It’s really helpful. Nevertheless, often times I find myself waiting for long periods of time while “Ilastik” process new annotations etc or when I hit “export all”. I was wondering: which single upgrade to my laptop’s hardware would be most beneficial in terms of reducing these “waiting periods”, in your opinion?
I’m using a Dell Inspiron 5579 laptop with an Intel Core i7-8550 1.8 GHz CPU, an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, 24 GB of RAM and a Micron 1100 SATA (512 GB) SSD.
I attach an image with typical data about usage of the CPU and the GPU at moments in which Ilastik is doing some heavy processing.
I’m not an expert in computers etc., so I guess what I’m asking might not necessarily make sense, but I’d ask nevertheless: in your opinion, which single upgrade to my laptop would be most beneficial for me, in terms of reducing the processing time in “Ilastik”? Would installing a new CPU be most beneficial? Would installing a new GPU (is that even possible with a laptop like mine) be the way to go?
