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
But any other suggestion for a graphics card is welcome too.
Solid Edge 2019 on Windows 7, 64 bit
Intel Core i5 2400 CPU @3.1 GHz.
8 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD
Solved! Go to Solution.
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
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)
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:
Design Manager Streetscape Ltd
Solid Edge 2019 [MP4] Classic [x3 Seats - Cloud Enabled]
Windows 10 - Quadro P2000
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.
