Gefore or Quadro?
« on: August 09, 2011, 08:36:49 PM »
Which of Nvidia Quadro 4000 and Gefore GTX 580 3GB DDR5 will be better for Premier Pro CS 5.5?

As far as I know the Quadra shines in applications like AutoCAD and similar 3D render software. Premier Pro is doing video editing and a Geforce is more than able to handle that.

Quadra cards are not intended to play games so their use is rather limited, require different drivers and they are not cheap.

I fully agree. Go GeForce.

Unless Premiere's specs/requirements specifically say it supports Quadro for acceleration and/or it lists *only* Quadra (and not Geforce), then the Geforce is likely to be the best bang for the buck. The Quadro line is mainly distinguished by their CAD-and-pro-3D-oriented drivers that prioritize stability, high geometry counts, and accelerate line antialiasing and other functions. These days most acceleration for non-3D apps (and an increasing number of 3D apps) is handled by GPGPU libraries like CUDA and OpenCL, both of which are supported equally well on Geforce and Quadro devices.
