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 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.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
A good question will be halfway to a good answer.
