I am very impressed by GraphLab ability to hand very large data sets. I was able to process ~100 GB worth of (~80,000) images on my 6 years old laptop (HP Pavilion Dv6, Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz × 2, 4 GB RAM).
Now, I am looking to buy a laptop equipped with a powerful GPU to be able to apply deep learning to the processed dataset, and used the trained model to extract features to be used in building other models (similar to the Imagenet pretrained model approach).
As you know, their are many NVIVIDA GPU models http://www.nvidia.ca/object/wtb_notebooks.html, and I am struggling with choosing a laptop with a GPU suitable for GraphLab deep learning modelling.
I understand that you used NVIDIA GTX-780 GPU with the MNIST image dataset. Did you use the same GPU with the Imagenet deep learning model?
Could you please advise me which type of GPUs should I consider.
For example, I am looking at the Dell Precision M3800 Workstation which comes with NVIDIA® Quadro K1100M graphics with 2GB3 memory. Does the Quadro K1100M provide good performance with deep learning? http://www.dell.com/ca/business/p/precision-m3800-workstation/pd
Thank you in advance. Cheers
