New Quadro K5000

Hi

I need an advice if possible. I want to buy a video card for viewport performance in 3d max especially, and now I have Quadro 4000. I am not very happy with the FPS this gives for high poly count. I have seen now that Nvidia launched Quadro k5000. Do you think is a significantly increase in viewport speed?

I thaught on Quadro k5000 or a Quadro 6000, but I am not sure which is better

Thanks in advance

I'll be reviewing the K5000 Mac edition and don't have any performance info on it yet but the K5000 is newer than the 6000, so it should perform better for viewport performance.

Xbitlabs had a review up yesterday.

The review on Xbitlabs sucks cause there's no real world test for CUDA/openCL apps like iray, vrayRT, Octane etc... Since the QuadroK5000 is useless in double precision calculations, I'm wondering what kind of performance you get in GPU rendering apps.

GPU rendering is overrated anyway.

I've got a windows k5000 here. Can run a bench or two if you got something specific.

Nice to hear that you'll be reviewing this card on mac. A one on one comparison with the Fermi based Quadro's (Quadro 4000) in Adobe mercury engine acceleration and Vray RT besides viewport power test would be very appreciated.

Given that even geforce cards on macs have decent enough drivers for those tasks I doubt anyone would spend 2000 bucks on a K5000, which has only 90 Gigaflop DP computing power listed in its specs.

The quadro K5000 has 3/6 times less DP computing power compared to Quadro 4000/6000 which is rather disappointing. Most people would rather invest in an Tesla K20 or in a yet to be anounced Quadro with same GK110 silicon.

double precision calculations in general 3D graphics is overkill.. there's no need for such precision in calculations.. if it were for real science like flying monkeys to the moon and back.. sure maybe.

the K5000 has twice the single precision performance as the 6000 (in specs).. but because it has a lower memory interface, i would not doubt it to be slower than the 6000 in real world tests... hard to say, we really haven't seen many of those yet. (or atleast i haven't)

Hmm... Above is the link of one review I found. It gently says that the quadro K5000 is a looser for cuda accelerated rendering. But its only based on the bunkspeed rendertest.

that's the worst review I've seen in a long time. Running only two synthetic benchmarks (Cinebench and specviewperf) and expecting to understand anything from that is pointless. brutal.

Would be nice if you can test scene found here, to see how is the viewport speed(FPS). You must open the scene in 3d max, and hit play. On the end the FPS gets higher, but is most important at the begining where all are visible

I have made also a test with my Quadro 4000, and I am not very happy with this

Thanks in advance

No max here. Maya or Cinema4D. Might have a copy of Modo lying around somewhere too.

no doubt, and from what I have seen.. almost all of these "review" sites are posted nearly the day of release of the products or shortly thereafter (usually when they get ground clearance from Nvidia's NDA).

They don't even mention "what" driver version they tested... you would have been better off to give a monkey a pencil and ask it to write the review.

pathetic.

Hi, i've made the test with this scene with Quadro K5000 on PC.
Time 1:03:37

Can you also tell me how many FPS do you have on the scene?

I post bellow my fps with my quadro 4000. With SMOOTH AND HIGHLIGHTS AND EDGE FACES I have 7 FPS at the begining and only at the end of the animation the FPS goes higher. I am interested on how many FPS do you have on the first 250 frames if possible.

Also I made another test with a cube with 100x100x100 subdivisions. After this I put meshmooth modifier until it reaches 3.8 mil polys. I attached the scene also

cube test

If you can tell me how many fps do you have also with cube rotation would be great
