System configuration details RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am using a system with the below configuration and observed the video/skeleton tracking is bit slow when using for kinect development. Do I need to update my system w.r.t any of the components mentioned below? like graphics card etc...

  • It depends a lot upon what you want to do. The display adapter doesn't meet the requirements, but an AMD 5570 for like $60 will. Personally, I would try it first before buying the card though. I doubt you actually need it unless you use DirectX in your program. I don't believe the SDK actually does. One thing not mentioned in the requirements is USB 2.0. That is an absolute requirement. USB 1.0 and 1.1 just aren't fast enough. The requirments say dual core, you really do need dual core, but that processor is dual core. You should be able to run the examples just fine. If push comes to shove you could record the streams to disk and post process them. If you wanted to do something complex and didn't want to get into DirectX or OpenGL programming you would, pretty well, have to do that with about any processor. There's just a limit to what you can do in 1/30th of a second with even the fastest processor.
