If i can show to you my file, so we can compare and you tell me if i would be better workflow with a QUADRO K3100M (the maximum QUADRO that my laptop 15,5" handle) it would be nice.
I have talking with my vendor, and I say that I can change my GTX 780M for a QUADRO K3100M for an adicional cost of 150euros. (+/- 135 US dollars).
I have read about how CPU and RAM could be a better choice to change… But my problem is that 16Mb file, is not complete yet. In fact it is about 30% completed. When I finish this file I would expect about 150MB or 200Mb Rhino file. So I think it is a heavy file. My issues were are simply just because about the WORKFLOW… I ask to my laptop vendor for him to do a SPECview benchmark on a laptop like mine, with the same CPU + RAM + SSD but with a QUADRO K3100M, and the scores are far distant.
My problem is… do I choose to change it? do I will get a better workflow in OpenGL 3D applications? Do i can work with all shaders and shadows turn on without getting any lag on viewport or 3D rotate?
Everybody know that QUADRO cards are almost about DRIVERS, specially if that drivers is certificate by the software in use. The GREAT QUESTION here is, if the software in use don’t have specific DRIVERS, still i get 100% QUADRO PERFORM?
for example: AutoCAD 2014, 2015 seems to stop in time about having QUADRO Drivers. The only driver for a QUADRO K3100M are in AutoCAD 2013… After that, there are absolute, inexistible… Rhino 5, for example don’t have specific driver since QUADRO FX… if so, do i still perform well with a QUADRO on 3D softwares that used OPENGL? Archicad 17 is the same problem… Quadro drivers are stoked in time… I do not want to change graphic card if i do not have correct drivers. I supposed i will not perform very good with a QUADRO, because it is all about drivers.
This are the main question. And i would love to read somebody u have working with a Geforce GTX and QUADRO in 3D applications so i can have a nice feedback about changing graphics graphics… Dispite i know that Quadro K3100M is almost “a baby” compare to other quadro series. Perhaps i have to waint 1 or 2 years, hopeful NVidia engineering’s construct new drivers for that specific quadro model.
Thanks to all
