Hardware Profiles

Postby spread_gephi » 19 Oct 2013 07:30


I wanted to make this post so that individuals/teams can share with the rest of us their current hardware configuration, what type of data is used/analyzed with the setup, and/or share their hardware configuration history (as you've been upgrading your systems) and share what your experience has been throughout your hardware upgrades.

Thank you for sharing. I'm doing this in hope to get an insight on your different hardware profiles and so that they can give us an idea of what type of hardware we should be leaning towards using or upgrading to for the type of work we're trying to do.

Gephi is completely new to me and this is going to definitely, but I'm sure that this can help others as well. I know that there was a graphics card thread, but maybe this can help grow on that or maybe from here we can help that thread gain momentum.

I chose my config with Gephi + data intensive projects in mind.
Laptop is a Satori P170SM from Malibal (www.malibal.com), bought in June 2011.
- RAM: 16Gb
- CPU: Intel i7-2820QM 2.30Ghz
- Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M
- Hard drive: 120 Gb SSD (Gephi installed on it) + 400Gb regular hard drive
- OS: Windows 7
- screen is 17''

After two years I am still very happy with it, except for the weight (extremely heavy, I use a wheeled case). The only alternative at this level of performance would be a MacBook pro, though they don't make 17'' screens anymore, which is a real problem if you work on dataviz.
