Does Rhino7 work with GeForce RTX smoothly?

Hello - I’m trying to buy a new laptop and use Rhino7 on it. Does Rhino7 work smoothly with GeForce RTX 3050? Is there any big difference between GeForce and Quadro in terms of their performances?
Since GeForce is cheaper than Quadro, if there’s no problem, I would prefer to buy a laptop with GeFoce.

Please help me!

Buy the best GeForce you can afford.

If it’s NVIDIA RTX A1000 or GeForce RTX 3050, which one do you recommend?

Looks like the GeForce RTX 3050 is the better choice.

Thank you very much for the link! This is really helpful.
But do you think this applies to not only gaming but also CAD?
Dell people said if it was for CAD, RTX A1000 is more appropriate, but they weren’t too confident…

Thank you for your comment! Good to hear - do you use it for Rhino7? Also do you mind me asking the specs of pc?

Hi

i use it mainly for Rhino 7 + V-Ray for Rhino 5 + Grashopper3d

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor 3.80 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (NVidia)
64Gb RAM

Both, the GTX and RTX gaming cards from “Nvidia” work flawlessly with Rhino since many years. I use GTX1660 Ti and everything is super smooth with files up to 2,2 GB in size, except when I work with dense meshes from 3d scan models that cause some delay upon every move, rotation or scale.

Thank you very much for the info! I will probably get a similar spec pc then.

I see - thank you very much for the further info! I will actually have to think about how big my files’ sizes can go for designing jewellery now.

one thing to note about the Geforce cards… they have a “studio” driver and a “gaming” driver. IME I see some systems work better with one driver and other systems work better with the other. I wish I had insight into which is which and when to use what, but it seems pretty random here at tech support.

FWIW If you experience any issues with your geforce, grab the other driver and install using the custom/ clean install option.

I switched from a Nvidia gtx 960 to an Rtx 2060. With Rhino no problem (the old one was also fine), but in the renders (with Vray 5) and Photoshop it is quite fast. (Studio drivers installed, since I don’t use the pc for game). :wink:

I tested both driver types on heavy 3dm files (both with GTX 960 2GB and GTX 1660Ti 6GB) and there was basically zero difference in Rhino with either of them. :slight_smile:
Rhino 7 crashes equally with both cards with either driver while working with files larger than 2,2-2,3GB despite having 16GB RAM (4x4 DDR3). Not sure why.

I see - I will see how it goes. I will actually come back to this Forums and ask for help if anything goes wrong haha

Thanks for the info! I feel safe to go with RTX3050 after hearing what you guys said.

pleeeeease send in crash reports if you get an option to do so with the sad rhino screen… It gives us very valuable insight into what is happening and our devs look at every one. We have a weekly meeting to review them, please send in crash reports!!

I’ve always used expensive Quadro cards and Intel. This is my first comp. build with RTX and AMD. So far so good with RTX 3080 and Ryzen 5950!
