@utooberblooper …. Not anymore. Autodesk went from OpenGL to Direct3D. So the GeForce actually runs better than the Quadro for Autocad. Get it. 🙂
Autocad has moved from OpenGL to Direct3D. Therefore, you no longer need a Workstation class graphics card. They even test and certify “gaming” class graphics cards on their site… such as the GeForce cards. This means you can get a lot more bang for the buck.
A perfect example are the 2 nVidia cards below.
Quadro FX 4800 = $1550
GeForce GTX480 = $500 (better specs than the Quadro card at a 3rd of the price)
@02daft If they got Newtek, there would be an uprising…of sorts. At least, their had better be if such a thing happens. I mean, they got Maya, softimage……ahhhh.
@02daft what? thats not true dude. it inspires me to create new things. and probably millions of others too. what to you use?, Blender?
@MachineXenon cool. I went out and bout a firepro v8750 not to long after i saw this. It tears through my 3d applications. thanks though..
Quadro will give you a similar boost in maya and 3ds max
i hate autodesk they represent the death of creativity. i hope that you’ll never get your dirty hands on newtek.
@xxxyboy3000 did you watch the video,and listen to what she was saying?a geforce is for gaming etc,a quadro is for autocad and business,get it?
what about maya or 3ds max??
AutoCad need a Quadro … Just like kill a bugs need a Nuclear Bomb….
You need a Quadro because you need a Quadro. Yeah sure.
Geforce is gaming mainstream and Quadrro is business type applications.
if i use geforce graphics card, will it give better performance than quadro???
