Autodesk AutoCAD 2013
Here’s another popular 3D modeling suite that uses DirectX. In our previous reviews we could see that Nvidia’s professional solutions were no better than their gaming counterparts in this application. However, the situation has changed with the release of new drivers and the Quadro series has become considerably faster.
The AMD FirePro W8000 can offer the same performance in AutoCAD 2013 as the Quadro K5000. The AMD FirePro W7000 is comparable to the Quadro K2000. The AMD and Nvidia products differ in their behavior depending on the model representation mode.
We can see that AMD’s products are better in the simplest (Wireframe) and in the most complex (Realistic) mode. The Quadro series are preferable for working in the Hidden and Conceptual modes.
