    Why is GTX better than Quadro Graphics card

    Zoomer, thanks for that explanation! I was also curious as to why Jim Wilson had previously said they actually work better? From what you have said, I would think there is no difference. Am I missing something? Thanks! Camden

    Remote Drafting / 3D Modeling Needed

    I am definitely interested and have the necessary skills, please reach me at CSlightingdesigns@gmail.com Cheers, Camden Simon
  3. Jim Wilson, I have a question concerning GPU for Vectorworks. I know you have said in the past that a GPU such as a 1070ti or 1080 will out perform a Quadro P4000 (both w/ 8GB of VRAM). Could you give details about how/what areas a GTX performs better? I do a combination of detailed light Rendering (Renderworks) (20% work load) and OpenGL in constructing large 3D models for scenic engineering plans and analysis (80% work load) on minimum 3 monitors. Also, is the trend of preferring GTX line VS Quadro line one that Vectorworks will likely continue for the next two releases? I currently run a XEON 8 core chip with 64 GB of RAM on a SSD, but am deciding on whether to sell two pieces of hardware and to invest in a 1070 TI vs Quadro P4000 (money is not an issue here). Thanks!!!
  4. Good afternoon, Jim Wilson, can you answer from the programmers of VW 2019 the following question. I have a Xeon compatible board that can handle two CPUs and I am going to upgrade the CPU. It is currently running a Xeon E5 @ 3.2 GHz. Is it better, or is there an advantage to having to independent 4 Core CPUs or to just have one 8 Core CPU? Thanks!!! Camden PS. Thanks to you all for taking more advantage the very expensive GPU in our workstations!!!

    Vectorworks 2018

    Jim, hopefully you can help me with this. I am running v2018 on a P710 Lenovo workstation with a Xeon E5-2623 quad core processor and 64 GB of ram with three monitors on a Quadro M2000 GPU. A small amount of lag is noticeable but when I add the fourth monitor I need for checking and modifying 3D models, the lag between executing commands is annoying. With the architecture of Vectorworks 2018, and 2019 soon coming, which is a better investment with the largest return? A new CPU or GPU? I can only afford to do one at this time. Options: I was looking at a 6 or 8 core Xeon processor at 2.6 to 3.0 ghz. Or Quadro P5000 (16mb) GPU Thoughts on what would would make the biggest difference as the cost will be about the same? Thanks!!!!
