I’m doing training experiments on a couple of machines. Both machines have a single RTX2080Ti in them but different RAM and CPU setups. The thing I’m seeing is that I’m very CPU limited. One setup have a 4 thread i5 and the other have a 8 thread i7. Both of the CPUs seems to struggle to keep the RTX card occupied. The RTXs are never 100% loaded and just idles sometimes.
My question is: how much would I need to bump the CPU in order to max out a single RTX2080Ti? Does the training like many cores or do I need high clock speeds?
