guppy graphic card
Entering edit mode

Hello I am trying to acquire a graphics card to be able to basecalling in guppy. In the Argentine market we have this Nvidia MSI GeForce GTX 10 Series GTX 1050 Ti 4GT OC Edition 4GB model. According to the manufacturer's specifications, the computing capacity is 6.1, which would be compatible for guppy. However I have no way of assuring that it can work. Can anyone tell me if this card will allow me to use guppy in GPU mode. There are other options in the market of my country but they are beyond the budget

Thanks for your comments!

I tested gpu-guppy (version 5.0.7 for ubuntu 16.04) on a GTX 1080 8G, which has the same computing capacity of the GTX 1050 Ti, and it works just fine. It took me about 5 hours to basecall 3.1 Gb in high accuracy mode with default parameters. This was my first and only experience with gpu-guppy.

I know this is an old post but I hope this answer might help someone
