Graphics Card?

FEMAP Experts,

 

I'm looking to pick up a new graphics card for analysis work. I'm looking into either a Nvidia Quadro K4200 or an AMD firepro 7100. Does anyone use wither of these cards or know if FEMAP has a preferance for for Nvidia or AMD graphics cards?

 

Thank you 

 

John

Dear John,

Any  card FirePro or Quadro Keppler cards are good graphics cards, the differences are smaller year by year. The key: the amount of VIDEO RAM!!. Make sure you have minimum 2 GB, but strongly recommended 4 GB RAM video. And also, OpenGL 4.2 compatible, better 4.5 or so.

 

Best regards,

Blas.

Blas,

 

Thank you for the help. I'm wondering if FEMAP works better with the Nvidia or AMD graphics cards. I'm leaning toward the 7100 because it has 8 GB of ram, but I know that some software is finicky when it comes to graphics cards and performance.

 

Thanks
