Categories > Workstation Graphics Cards > PNY Technologies, Inc. > PNY Quadro M4000 VCQM4000-PB 8GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Full Height Workstation Video Card

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Excellent all around workstation graphics with CUDA.
Pros: Specifically wanted NVIDIA CUDA for Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. This is a well fabricated graphics card. I experienced no problems locating and downloading NVIDIA drivers. NVIDIA and PNY websites are fine with me. The NVIDIA control panel application is well done, flexible and applicable to my CAD and video work.

After installing the physical card and loading the drivers "Adobe Premiere Pro CS6" did not employ this graphics card as a CUDA GPU (Adobe's Mercury Engine). This is not a problem it is a computer. For others experiencing this issue I offer the following solution:

Located in the default directory "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premier Pro CS6\" the utility "gpusniffer.exe" should be found. I ran this utility via the command console (cmd.exe). The following is the report:

--- OpenGL Info ---
Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer: Quadro M4000/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL Version: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 376.84
GLSL Version: 1.20 NVIDIA via Cg compiler
Monitors: 1

Shaders 422: 1
Shaders 420: 1

--- GPU Computation Info ---
Found 1 devices supporting GPU computation.
CUDA Device 0 -
Name: Quadro M4000
Capability: 5.2
Driver: 8
Total Video Memory: 8192MB
Not chosen because it did not match the named list of cards

Notice the "GPU Computation Info" states the name of this card is "Quadro M4000" and the last line refers to a "named list of cards". This list is the text file "cuda_supported_cards.txt" located in the same sub-directory. Open this text file with an editor such as "Notepad" and add "Quadro M4000". Done correctly the "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)" option should be active in the "Project Settings" of "Adobe Premiere Pro".

This following comparison you may find informative:

Using a short 7-minute 28-second, 720x480 video production rendering at "Max Render Depth" and MAX Render Quality" I rendered without CUDA and with CUDA.

WITHOUT CUDA
Total rendering time = 2-minutes, 48-seconds, utilizing between 80%-90% of a Xeon E5-1650 v3 CPU.

WITH CUDA
Total rendering time = 41-seconds, utilizing 27% of the CPU while off-loading to a maximum 77% usage of the Quadro M4000 graphics card.


A final comment on "Display Port" to "HDMI" accommodations:
In the past with other graphics cards I tried a few adaptors with none providing audio to the monitor. The following is a single-cable solution that works for my hardware configuration. This cable is available in various lengths.

CABLE, DisplayPort to HDMI
StarTech DP2HDMM1MB 3 Feet Black Connector A 1 - DisplayPort (20 pin) Male Input Connector B 1 - HDMI (19 pin) Male Output DisplayPort to HDMI converter cable – 4K M-M

Categories > Workstation Graphics Cards > AMD > AMD FirePro W8100 100-505976 8GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFire Supported Workstation Video Card

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 FIRE"pro"
Pros: This card does have defined edges and detail.
EEC and 10 bit pixel support.
Cons: Hardware and software have shortcuts and glitches.
Overheating, bad pixel issues and terrible support.
Many of these cards are defective (according to many other users) and getting a good batch or card is luck of the draw.
Bad card damaged my system so I had to RMA the motherboard and am still trying to get a working card after a year plus.
Other Thoughts: Didn't work for me, I have to wonder how they can stay in business making such lousy products. I will not gamble with another one of these or anything else from AMD. I would recommend upgrading your cooling setup and monitoring this GPU to make sure it doesn't fry your MB.

Categories > Workstation Graphics Cards > AMD > AMD FirePro W4100 100-505979 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Workstation Video Card

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great quad video card for the money
Pros: 4 Displays | DisplayPort or DVI | 2G DDR5 | 4K | 3D: Designed for financial and corporate professionals requiring up to 4 displays. Certified for many CAD/CAE applications this cost effective yet power video card will get the job done. Support for 4k resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 when using DisplayPort v1.2 monitors and cables.

Comes with ONE mini displayport to DVI (passive) adapter. If you do not have DisplayPort monitors you will need to buy 3 additional adapters.

Also if your 4 monitors are not IDENTICAL, those adapters need to be ACTIVE adapters not passive. This applies to any connection other than DisplayPort. If you are connecting straight out to DP monitors, they are neither passive or active, straight through. You will need Mini DisplayPort to regular size DisplayPort cables.
Cons: None really, great card for the money.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good card
Pros: Good display graphics excellent framerates. We use this for AutoCAD and Navisworks Manage.
Cons: Wouldn't work in an older computer with gigabyte x79 motherboard even though it said it should. Likely needed bios update but didn't want to risk using windows to update bios.
Other Thoughts: I put this into another computer here that was brand new and it installed with no issues. Computer uses a X99P-SLI motherboard by gigabyte.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 3D CAD BEAST
Pros: Got this card to create very large, intricate assemblies in SolidWorks. It has made my life so much easier :)
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Check to make sure this card is certified for your intended application, that may be why there are some disappointing comments (or update yer drivers). If you want to play video games, look at the GEFORCE series.

Categories > Workstation Graphics Cards > AMD > Radeon Pro WX 5100 100-505940 8GB 256-bit GDDR5 Workstation Video Card

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 My first, first.
Pros: Low power requirements (my last card took 2x 6pin plugs for power and this gets it all from the PCI slot), SolidWorks approved, intro. price lower than any other workstation graphics card in its speed range. Almost the same hardware as RX 480 for ONLY $100 more. It seems most workstation graphics cards are a generation behind the gamer cards and double the price. This is better than that benchmark on both counts.
Cons: Almost the same hardware as RX 480 for $100 more.
Other Thoughts: No other user reviews so this purchase was mostly on hype...Which it seems to live up to. I'll have to use it more and update this but so far I'm pleased. Got a passmark score of 2D Graphics Mark 1,100 & 3D Graphics Mark 6,551. SolidWorks has a history of being very picky when it comes to video cards and it seemed to do better than average on the SW portion of the tests.

Update: 12/27/16
My wonderful wife got me a 29" Ultrawide monitor for Christmas. It took a bit of searching but this is what it took to get it working at native 2560x1080:
Right click on desktop and choose AMD RadeonPro settings, click on the display tab. Go to Custom Resolutions. The next info I got from Custom Resolution (CRU 1.3) that you can find on google:

Horizontal Resolution: 2560
Vertical Resolution: 1080
Refresh Rate: 60
Interlaced/Progressive: Progressive
Timing Standard: CVT
G.Pixle Clock: 148500
G.Refresh Rate: 48.011
H.Timing Total: 2784
H.Timing Display: 2560
H.Timing Front Porch: 64
H.Timing Sync Width: 64
V.Timing Total: 1111
V.Timing Display: 1080
V.Timing Front Porch: 3
V.Timing Sync Width 10
H.Timing Polarity: Negative
V.Timing Polarity: Negative

I never would have guessed all those settings without CRU! Then you change the resolution the normal way in Win.

Pros: -8GB GDDR5. There's nothing out there that has 8GB ram at this price point.
-rock solid
-fast renders
Cons: -some programs only show 4GB ram. Is this some short-coming of the program or..? Windows shows 8GB
