NVIDIA Quadro 4000 and AutoCAD/C3D 2014?

Is the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 going to be certified for AutoCAD/C3D 2014? That card is not showing up on any of the 2014 Lists.

Don't get too hung up on the lists.  Autodesk isn't going to certify every card.  I always lead with the disclaimer that a card that has a WHQL certified driver, is certified.

 

You can get a WHQL certified driver for this card on nVidia.com and you'll be just fine with AutoCAD 2014.  I have a few machines left in my enterprise that run this card without issues.

Its a little overkill for basic AutoCAD work, unless you are also using ReCap or other software that is heavily dependant on OpenGL.
