Can I use this Geforce graphics card for 3d applications like maya, zbrush, 3ds max?

here's one of the more thorough reviews i've read in a while that examines multiple nvidia products:

yes, its' geared towards Premier.. but, the facts regarding the importance of Memory Interface, Type, and Cores is what really is key.

A bit of this though gets thrown out the window when talking about 3D apps, OpenCL, OpenGL, and GPU rendering.

Thumbs up good info

- Mathew, thanx for clarifying / example of hi-end Quadro re: broadcast & video throughput.
Yeah i think that's what someone had in mind when they told me to try Quadro's for 2d work, it's good to finally get more of a sense of how Quadros fit into the pipeline even if over my budget.

- Troy, i read alot of the breakdown & explanation @ ur link, even tho it's geared toward video editing & primarily Premiere, it was gr8 to see how **thorough** those guys were in their tests + results.

..could be a good resource in future for that nice, free software-routine they wrote if indeed it would for Ps optimization & related card-optimization tweaks.

I wish they'd have been 3d guys so that all those Nvidia-results & chart-breakdowns would show vector, poly & related data--but was still def worth the time to read.

Going to keep 'em bookmarked in case i want to send'em an email if my 2d work ever crosses-over into their area:
i use Premier *rarely* --yet it's possible i'll use it again for personal folio/ editing scenarios.
