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.
Lightwave runs equally well on cards from both AMD and Nvidia.
Besides real-life applications, we benchmarked the cards in a special benchmarking suite called CINEBENCH R10. It shows the performance of a card in the 3D modeling suite Cinema 4D, which is highly popular among Mac users.
According to this test, AMD’s professional graphics cards are ahead in every price category. That’s a rare picture for today’s test session.
