I am currently going to buy PCs for my university for the purpose of using Autonomous Programming Software and the simulator. The simulator we currently use is CARLA and we had an issue where the current PC is very laggy when running CARLA and ROS packages for the Autonomous Driving Software. The specs of the current PC are as below:
I am planning to get new PC with specs as below:
Processor: Intel Core i7-12700K or i7-12700
RAM: 32GB DDR4
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 3080 (12GB) or NVIDIA RTX A2000 (12GB) (12 GB VRAM)
Storage: 1TB SSD PCIe NVMe
I mainly have questions about the GPU. As one of them is GeForce series and another is Quadro series, both are hard to compare for this particular scenario. The system requirement of CARLA only states that it requires 6gb VRAM but prefer 8gb VRAM. If I am going to continue develop the autonomous driving code with CARLA as simulator or maybe any other simulators like LGSVL in the future for maybe 5 years, which gpu is more suitable (I have tried to search online and ask other Pros but I didnt get any good answers as this scenario is too specific) or maybe the processor is not suitable. Please do give any advice thanks.
