Graphics Card Dilemma

I have arrived at these two graphics cards solely by observing the signatures of users on this forum:

Quadro K2000 (2GB), or

Quadro K2200 (2GB)

  

Not knowing the difference between the two, I am unable to decide which one to go for.

The price difference is significant for me but I am OK with buying the costlier if it is worth - based on your suggestions.

  

My criteria No.1 is:

3D models, both parts, and assemblies should not lag when spinning/ zooming around when anti-alias is set to high. Actually, that is all I know about what to expect from a graphics card Smiley Happy

 

But any other suggestion for a graphics card is welcome too.

  

Thanks.

Hi @Tushar

 

 

 

Just comparing the Cuda specs of each card would me let suggest to use the K2200

 

K2200 = 640 Cuda cores while K2000 = 384 Cuda cores, which nearly is the half of the other, what also reflects the performance in SE somehow.

 

Anyway both cards are member of a very old Nvidia family.

K,M and current P

Maybe You decide for some M model or even a P1000 or P2000

 

Anyway

Hi @Tushar

 

 

another point to mention is, that You can download the SE Performance check and view the results there.

Maybe there are both cards listed and You directly can see the difference in SE usage in hard facts (seconds for graphics test)

Hello @Tushar,

 

have found the specification of both GPU.

The memory is running here with 128 bit.

This has an impact at opening Solid Edge files fast.

Here it is better to have a card with 256 bit or more.

It matter significant only if you try to open files with many parts (more than 10.000).

 

Attached here the spec for both and an alternative card:

Hi @Tushar,

I think between those two K series card you would hardly read the differences, in real world use.....I would rather see you go for the P series, and I can recommend them, as we have these (P2000 - 5GB) in our systems. They, at least locally, are priced the same as the older K2200, that are nolonger stocked in many stores.

What's more, I'm more concerned for you, with that old Windows 7 OS, mainly with a view forward for using with Solid Edge 2020 in the coming year, when it won't be able to run on it.

Hi @Tushar

 

 

I only can fully agree to that what @SeanCresswell said:

I would prefer a P2000

They are really good card for that price

I have a K2000 & can confirm it's not great for SE, I get by with it, but sometimes it struggles & I have difficulty picking up on keypoints etc. Sometimes sketches don't show up properly.

 

P2000 is top of my wishlist.

Thank you Edgers for the practical insight.

It seems that the P2000 emerges as the winner.

Next challenge is to check if a modern card is compatible with my 7 yr old motherboard and such stuff.
