3ds max 2009
The latest versions of Autodesk 3ds max run faster when using DirectX. Besides, when you choose DirectX, you will be able to use extra features including hardware shaders. That’s why we preferred this software interface for our test. Nvidia offers a special driver for 3ds max that helps boost performance in projection windows. The manufacturer claims the driver can speed some functions up twofold and more! So, we installed that driver for the Quadro series cards.
Nvidia’s professional solutions are head above their AMD’s opponents in this test. The software optimizations implemented by Nvidia in the 3ds max Performance Driver (previously known as MAXtreme D3D) produce a positive effect. It is clear than the Quadro series achieves its advantage by being faster at processing carcass models and effective at texturing and lighting. The solutions from both GPU makers are roughly similar at executing shaders and processing models with shaded invisible edges. Anyway, if you are looking for a graphics card suitable for 3ds max, you should consider Nvidia’s professional products in the first place.
