Powerful and ready for high end CAD and 3D graphics software
14 October 2013
Summary: Perfect match for your workstation, if you are Architect, Engineer or Video Editor. One of the best options comparing power vs price. Professional hardware for professional users It has 2 Displayport outputs, recommend to order converters from Displayport to HDMI, this due that most monitors come with HDMI inputs. The DVI output is convenient for backwards compatibility.
Pros: Used primarily for 3dsMax w/ iRay rendering. This is a dramatic step up from the Fermi-based Quadro 4000. I'm running this K4000 with half the processors and the remaining Quadro 4000 turned off and getting incredibly quick renders. HUGE savings on power consumption, 80W-Kepler vs. 142W-Fermi.
Cons: Not directly saying price is an issue, but for the generational jump of 2Gb to 3Gb I was expecting more memory. It seems like they almost took a step back in memory quantity and focused on the stream processors.
