What kind of hardware is necessary to optimally use the platform with RL/DL/TF?


The a3c algorithm/code runs pretty slow on my laptop also when I make use of computer vision.
I’m aware of the nvidia digits titan x4 box any cheaper/cheapest alternatives?



I am not sure about HW specs of your laptop but good GPU should improve your learnng speed a lot.

If you have more money you can buy better GPU but Titan sounds bit overpriced for starting.
