Professional graphics cards for performance workstations occupy a completely different market niche than the gaming solutions, even though they are manufactured by the same developers. Today we are going to check out the performance of these graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia in popular CAD/CAM systems for professionals. Especially since both manufacturers now have new card series on contemporary 55 nm chips: Quadro FX and FirePro.
Everything is normal here except that Nvidia’s senior model is slower than the Quadro FX 4800. Otherwise, the choice of a graphics card for Maya should be based on its price. It should be noted that the transition of the Quadro FX series to new graphics cores has improved its performance in this particular software suite. We used to recommend AMD’s solutions for Maya as they delivered higher performance. But now we can’t give specific recommendations because Nvidia’s and AMD’s solutions are roughly equal.
