Does computer power makes big changes on 3D tracking? (Any tracking)

Hi, so far i've never got a solid, usuable tracking from my tracking (3D or 2D) attempts. I've used all type of cameras; from dslrs to high ends; Arri Alexa mini, latest RED. Also different softwares; from adobe to Nuke, fusion... I know what i must consider while shooting; avoding motion blur, moving objects etc. But there is no satisfied results! Even with simple shots. I've changed everthing except my computer. So i am thinking thats happining because of the computer. Can anyone say anything about that? Thanks.

My PC's specs:
Windows 10
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
16 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB
SanDisk Ultra II 240GB ATA Hard Disk

It appears as though your bottleneck is your GPU. If using After Effects for tracking, I believe it is GPU accelerated, but that would only make major changes in how fast it tracked, not how accurately it tracks. Either way the tracking quality should be the same regardless of your computer's specs because the formula for the track is the same.

I could be wrong, as I'm not a VFX expert or an expert in coding.

The quality of your track has to do either with the footage or the program itself. Nothing in your computer spec shows it would be the computer. Like Matthias said, the time it would take to track is dependent on your computer specs but not the quality.

Check out this recent tutorial and see if that helps any of your questions.
