VRAM Usage: Quadro 4000 vs GTX 690 in Maya 2013


I've recently been running some tests on the two graphics cards, and I am finding that the GTX is not being used to its full capacity.

I am using GPUz to monitor my interaction with Maya 2013. I've tried 2012 as well and the same results were produced.

When moving around the viewport, the Quadro uses all 2GB of its memory, and it has a noticeably higher frame rate, especially at around 4.5 million polys. The GTX only uses about 200-400 MB, and moving around the viewport is choppy. At less than 2 million polys, they perform the same.

However, when I turn on viewport 2.0, the GTX now outperforms the Quadro. Both cards are using about 1700 MB of VRAM, but the GTX looks a lot smoother when orbiting around the scene.

If anyone has any ideas on how to increase performance on the GTX, please let me know.
