Today we are going to talk about those graphics cards that are intended not for gaming needs, but for serious work. We managed to get our hands on a few new solutions from Nvidia and ATI from the Quadro and FireGL series. Let’s find out what innovation shave they prepared for professionals working in 3D modeling applications and CAD software.
PRO/Engineer Wildfire 2.0
Although the results of PRO/Engineer Wildfire 2.0 are not really dependent on the power of the graphics accelerator, Nvidia professional solutions are again performing better.
Besides the SPECapc family of applications we have also resorted to a special CINEBENCH 2003 test. It shows the systems’ performance in a popular Cinema 4D application, which is especially beloved by Mac users.
Nvidia cards are evidently faster here. Moreover, we even got the impression that our CPU prevented the Quadro family from showing its real power.
