Re: NVIDIA Quadro 600 or ATI FirePro V4800?

I've not used the Quadro 600 or 2000 cards, so I really can't give you a comparison, but I will say I've been happy with the FirePro V4900 for (mostly 2D) use with AutoCAD 2012.  We don't have Revit, so I can't help you out there either.  Maybe someone else can chime in that can better answer your question.

System specs: AutoCAD 2015 64-bit SP2, Windows 7 64-bit SP1, Intel Core i7-2600K, 16GB RAM, Crucial M4 SSD, AMD FirePro V4900, 2 Dell Monitors (2560x1600)

ATI's will give you more bang for the $$$




But I'd buy the nearest Nvidia at twice the price.



I've had nothing but problems with ATI cards/drivers in WORKSTATIONS in the past. Ive tried 3 or 4 times and always end up replacing them. I do buy them for my kids gaming boxes.


But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
