Quadro 4000 vs GeForse GTX 690 - What is the best?


#1

Hi guys!

I’m looking for a new graphics card and I can’t decide which is better out of this? Yeah, I know that Quadro it’s a professional card, and GTX 690 more a game card than professional. But if you look at the characteristics of GTX, it is much better than Quadro. More cores, faster freq etc.

Do I understand correctly that the Quadro better for After Effects just because it has a different driver? Or the differences are minor?

And also, what do you think about AMD FirePro V7900? - Video test Maybe this one is the best?

Have a nice day! :wink:

P.S. Sorry for the mistake in the title - GeForce.

ive got the same dillema GTX vs Quadro i think gtx is better at least at it characteristics, I read some threads in different forums and the conclusion was that quadro is needed if you work with footage and its 10bit or somehting like this. about AMD i think its better to stick with nvidia since adobe is working with them.
thats just my opinion

regards

Thanks, Alex! I am also inclined more to the GTX.

Also it would be great if felt_tips would leave his point about this. :slight_smile:

Hard to say, Wayman.

I use a Quadro 4000 Mac. I swapped it to be able to use the CUDA based Ae CS6 ray-traced 3D.

I have to say though that I didn’t notice a big difference in the day to day running of software from the Radeon 5870 GPU that I had in there before.

And I have absolutely no experience with the GTX 690. They’re a similar price, right? I’d be inclined to go with whichever one has the best benchmarks… leaning heavily towards your area of usage.

According to this, the GTX 680 seems to perform just as well if not better at less than half the price. I haven’t looked into all the details though.

Thanks, Felt, always interesting to read your opinion.

Not long ago, Adobe released a new update for After Effects CS6 and now it’s allows the use of technology of ray-traced 3D and for 690 GTX card as well.

So, probably GTX will be the best solution for the home station.

I did go for a GTX680, be careful with the 690 since most programs won’t recognize the extra core that it has Adobe suite being the case that’s why they perform the same.

Bump! Hey wayman, I have exactly the same dilemma :slight_smile: Same questions too. What did you buy in the end?

I have a Mac with radeon HD 5870.

I have quadro 6000 6GB memory, & still not satisfied with the result… :frowning:

Consider to buy GTX Titan, lots of cuda cors with 6GB of memory… looks really good to me…
any one have GTX Titan here can share there experience…?

I have a GTX Titan in my computer, and I’m happy with it.

Did you notice any improvement in AE?

It hard to say, because I took this card with a new processor, with SSD disk for cash and with more RAM, it’s all gave me more speed in the workflow and rendering. If I worked more with GPU rendering, then I would be able to tell you in more detail about improvements.
