*May vary depending on CPU, video, other conditions. Expected speed is specified for optical head and shoulders tracking turned off, Use fast tracking algorithm (BETA) unchecked. Using optical head and shoulders tracking (Enable head tracking checked, Shoulders option set to Track from video) will make tracking speed around twice slower. Using motion controller for head tracking will not decrease tracking speed. Checking Use fast tracking algorithm (BETA) option will increase tracking speed up to 2.5 times.
** If you do not see Amazon product links in Firefox, they may be filtered by Adblock plugin. In this case pease turn Amazon filtering off (see Adblock settings in Tools menu).

You can estimate tracking speed for other GPUs using Passmark value. Tracking speed roughly proportional to Passmark value, so you can use video cards from table above as reference.

Note!  Most calculations are performed on GPU, so using powerful GPU is recommended to maximize tracking speed. Professional GPUs like NVIDIA Quadro or ATI FireGL are not recommended due to high price and lack of performance advantage. You should understand that Quadro/FireGL video cards are designed for very specific professional OpenGL-based workloads. Their main advantage is high image quality in OpenGL rendering. iPi Desktop Motion Capture needs raw 32-bit floating point performance and does not benefit from image quality features of Quadro/FireGL video cards. For best performance, use top gaming-class NVIDIA GeForce or ATI Radeon video cards.
