Autodesk Maya 2013
The popular 3D graphics editor Maya 2013 is a typical professional application based on the OpenGL API. AMD's graphics cards used to be especially strong here just a few years ago, but the current situation is different.
AMD’s solutions W8000 and W7000 are in between Nvidia's Quadro K5000 and K4000 in terms of performance. This result is adequate for the FirePro W8000 considering its price, and very good for the W7000 which is slightly cheaper than the Quadro K4000. On the other hand, if we take the price factor into account, the junior Quadro series products must be noted. The K2000 and K600 offer the best price/performance ratio in this application. For example, the K2000 is only 30% slower than the flagship K5000 but costs many times less.
The standings of the AMD and Nvidia cards do not differ much in the various model visualization modes. Still, we can note that the Kepler-based Quadro series are especially preferable to their opponents when working with wireframe models.
