Quadros were and are almost universally praised for their 2D CAD capabilities and Autodesk and Solidworks have provided specialized drivers to optimize performance of their software using Quadros. However, it occurred to me that the lesser 3D performance of Quadros as compared to Geforce GTX should be considered as I work then and now more in Sketchup and other 3D applications- and with large files- 80 to MB.
I am learning Revit, a 3D program with big files and a lot of rendering power needed. Mempry, and disk all have to be great. Because the graphics performance is so essential to fluent use of the applications I use, it seemed to me, one of the best ways to choose a graphics card is to visit the sites of the applications you intend to use and look into their recommendations for the most demanding version of their applications.
Maya is another heavy-resource program lots of rendering, lots of polygons. Geforce 2- series GTX,are listed, but not in the class. I also then believed that it was possible to soft-mod the GTX into a Quadrobut of course learned later that that trick was by then no longer allowed by nvidia.
Then I discovered Passmark Performance Test- and surprise and disappointment. The T with the GTX did well, a rating of - quite good- but the 2D score was only couled with a very good 3D score as To make a long story- 25 hours!
Turning to the nasty baby blue Windows 7 Basic theme, the 2D score of the T jumped from to ! The overall rating of the also improved from to I have never read of anyone else reporting the severe performance penalty of the Win 7 Classic and Aero themes, but there we are.
As the models became large, each time I changed the viewpoint, the wait to regen was frustrating. I use Sketchup too casually- that is not very systematically, not taking full advantage of layers and components, and consequently, waiting to regen a view with shadows on a MB model seemed to take forever.
I did learn that view regens depend on the amount of geometry that is visible, so I learned to navigate over the model in plan or around the edges and then zoom in to the position I wanted at the very last so that the least amount of 3D trees and other polygon rich objects were visible.
It even helps to always save the drawing in a view with little geometry visible. Also, a big performance help is to add trees and any complex imported 3D models at the last minute when everything else is finished and still place them on a layer that can be turned off.
For general working, display in monochrome, and definitely, do not turn on shadows until you need to test views for rendering or 2D image export. Last month December,as I was planning a Solidworks assembly of 6, parts, I decided to try a higher level Quadro again.
Searching the specification charts, I was again immersed in the morass of Quadro precision and specialized application drivers vs. Geforce 3D speed and at much lower cost. Interestingly, the newer Quadros seemed to have changed their emphasis from 2D to 3D performance in accordance with the extreme shift, especially in architectural CAD to 3D applications like Revit.
After some research, which showed the FX bit, 1. The Quadro is beautifully made and very large. The Precision has a series of slots corresponding to the PCIe slots and the FX has a rear bracket that supports the card on the back end.
In fact, an AutoCad 3D truss made of curved sections of round tubing seemed to have some intersection anomalies not present with the GTX.
This is a great feature of rendering programs as you can keep a couple of cores aside such that the rendering can churn away while you work on something else, or put the computer to work on the rendering and go another cup of coffee.
No 2 highest 2D, has a rating ofthis on an i7 K 3. Note the 2D score is similar but the 3D score is substantially higher than the No. The highest 3D rating machine is rated overall atusing an i5 K 3.
Interestingly, the top two 3D machines use quad core i5's. The highest rated Computer on the current Passmark Benchmark using a GeForce has a rating of and uses an i7 6 core 3.
The GTX is interesting as it has a bit memory bus width CUDA cores, and it seems to me, that the computers with high graphics scores seem to favor GPUs with the wider and bit memory bus widths.
I find the balance of both a high 2D and 3D in this configuration very attractive.There is a bit of everything in this article. There are Adobe Illustrator tutorials for beginners and for advanced users.
