I've got an NVIDIA GTX 960 and 32G RAM on my desktop. I was just wondering if it really does any benifit to the usage of Mathematica compared with some integrated card in high-end intel chips.
Plot3D surfaces or vector fields (sometimes from big numerical data like 1 or 2MB generated by Mathematica or others) and drag and rotate them.
I also sweep some parameter range and generate like 50 2D line plots to make
Manipulate saved within the Notebook. Often the plot takes more time than the computation especially as I scale up the calculation/data size. When I reopen the Notebook, such saved plots take seconds to load usually. Not sure if this is normal.
Related, I often
ParallelTable to sweep parameters and compute complex things without any graphics to generate data for plotting.
