Hi all, we are planning on building a server/workstation to regularly run (Ignition) Gazebo simulations with ROS2. I was not able to find any requirements or suggestions on hardware for the simulator. From experience, we only learned that NVIDIA GPU is necessary, as integrated graphics take extensively longer time. I have two questions:

  • GPU: gaming or professional? (GeForce/Quadro) - There is an old reply that for original Gazebo, GeForce was more effective.
  • Does anyone have a working setup like that and would give some recommendation/advice?
