Need help selecting GPU Desktop vs. Professional

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow OCNers, I'm looking to get some advice on which GPU/GPUs to get for my current build. I plan on using it to render and also game so I'm kind of caught in between which GPU I should get, I currently use and plan on using Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit, 3DSMax, Navisworks, Maya and maybe some Solidworks. Does anyone know how much of an advantage the drivers you get with the professional cards give you? I know that and having their customer support to help fix issues with their cards are what you pay for when you buy the professional models of video cards. I have no set budget for these so go ahead and recommend me what you think would work well with my current setup (see sig). Also, should I go with what is currently out or wait for the new set of GPUS to come early next year? Thanks in advance thumb.gif

Looks like its back to the drawing board for me lol, I had researched this before but forgot which uses which...(horrible memory) Didn't have the time nor money for the build i'm planning now then though.

If those mostly support cuda or opencl acceleration the consumer level cards should suffice without being taxed

Quite massive. You want a Quadro. Have a look at benchmarks at THW.

Alright, I've still got to wrap my head around how each program works and what card would serve me best in my uses. Thanks for the info thumb.gif +rep

Thanks man, that's what I was looking for, last time i checked I couldn't find anything like that. Because anyone who reviews cards doesn't normally have licenses of professional software just for a quick benchmark or review... I'll have to keep looking and get enough information on it so that I can make the best decision possible, because I plan on shelling out a nice amount of cash to get these. I was wondering how professional cards fair in SLI but there probably isn't anything on that unfortunately xD. Thanks again guys much appreciated information thumb.gif +rep

With luxrender the amd cards on opencl are quite fast for 3ds max,its a free add on


And if you want similar performance to the firepro equivalent
