Nvidia Quadro FX vs. ATI FirePro: Professional Graphics Accelerators Roundup
I hate to question the integrity of the writer, but sure doesn't match what I have read on other sites. Nvidia Quadros do well with some cards in some apps, and AMD FirePro do well in others.
Has anyone checked out any reports from people who actually use the application software for a living ( e.g. http://robrodriguez.com/wordpress/?p=699).
By the way, since when is 10-bit support considered peculiar?
I´d hugely appreciate it if Xbitlabs could compare these results with maybe six consumer cards with the exact same testbed.
I think a lot of people consider working with consumer cards, cost-wise or just wanting to use it for both worlds, work and gaming.
More and more realtime hardware shading with DirectX9 (for example Max2009+) becomes important when working on a scene and I´m not the only one asking himself why for instance a nvidia GTX285 with obviously more horsepower should perform worse than a QuadroFX3800 just because of the drivers. It doesn´t make sense, over the long run and both AMD and nvidia have got to understand it.
Maybe a truthful investigation and comparison from a respected hardware site shall make an impact...
I would also like to see a comparison with consumer cards: it seems like the recent versions of some pro apps (like Maya) don't see such a big difference between a radeon and a firepro
