Which is the better NVIDIA GPU for editing video and 3D graphics?
Posted on 2013-06-19
I am trying to configure a system for editing video and 3D graphics. The two most used programs on this system will be Adobe After Effects and Autodesk 3ds Max. When looking at certified hardware for 3ds Max, Autodesk seems to lean very heavily towards the Quadro series of GPUs from NVIDIA. However, the GeForce series seems to be much more powerful in many ways. Has anyone had any experience in this arena who can shed some light on which way to go? I do notice that most of the Xeon systems I am specking, from HP and Dell, are pushing the Quadros. The Xeons seem to be what Autodesk prefers. Are the Quadros more compatible with Xeons, and perhaps the GeForces more compatible with the i7 processors?
