Nvidia Quadro 3000M compatibility?

Dear all,

 

I see on the autodesk certified hardware page http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/cert?siteID=123112&id=16391880 that the whole x000M Quadro line is qualified, except for 3000M. Is there a reason for it? Or did autodesk just forgot to write it down?

And of course, Muphys law dictates that the IT proposed laptops carry the 3000M chip.

 

Any help?

 

Regards

According to Nvidia's web site, the 3000M supports DirectX 11 and is in the high-end part of the comparison matrix.  That's all you need to know.  It should run Inventor very well.  See more detailed information here.

 

One caution, though- if by any chance your new laptops will be running a 32-bit operating system (they wouldn't do that to you, would they?), the 3000M will be using half of your available address space, leaving only 2 GB for everything else, including RAM, which will have to accommodate OS as well as applications such as Inventor.

Nvidia Quadro 3000M compatibility?

I have a similar problem. I have an Nvidia 3000M and it seems like it is not compatible with Alias 2012?! Is this true? When I contacted Dell they told me that if I continued using my graphic card, in the long run I would be degrading its performance. Also, obviously 2012 would be running slow.

 

Please let me know if this is true, and if there is any fix for this?

You might get better answers in an Alias support forum; this one is for Inventor.  But I can't imagine why a high-end current Quadro GPU wouldn't be able to run Alias, or any other modeling application.  The info you received from Dell sounds bogus to me.
