The situation in Maya is completely different from what we have seen in 3ds max 7. ATI professional solutions are indisputable leaders here leaving Nvidia Quadro competitors far behind. Even the slowest FireGL V3400 outperforms the top Quadro FX model. We suspect that there are some problems with Nvidia drivers, which caused these low results in Maya tests. As we can see from the diagrams, the performance of entire Nvidia Quadro family appears limited by some value, which origin we cannot explain at this time.
Besides the total scores in Maya we would also like to offer you the results of the corresponding SPECapc test during work with corresponding test models.
These results show once again that the performance of Quadro FX graphics cards stumbles over some issues. And it is definitely not the CPU that is to blame, because FireGL accelerators easily leave their competitors behind, and sometimes this advantage is measured in times.
By the way, FireGL V7350 is almost always slower than the less expensive FireGL V7200. These two solutions differ only by the amount of onboard graphics memory, which doesn’t seem to always help. Although, the lag is not that dramatic.
