This must be a tired subject in here by now. However, being the owner of a quadro 5000 at work and a geforce gtx 580 at home, I am failing to understand how the quadro is $3500 better than my geforce.
I am definitely not trying to flame or hate, rather I am honestly trying to understand why I need a quadro. I can eek out a couple of FPS’s from my moderately heavy arch viz scenes (6.5M polys before proxies) with it but that doesn’t appear to me at least to justify the price difference.
I use After Effects for color correction and Premiere for editing/rendering the finals but have not done any benchmarks to date.
From what I have read it really boils down to the whole thing being subjective to what you need. I am just see from my experience that the ends don’t justify the means. I am hoping someone can drop a quadro bomb here and tell me where it’s better by $3500.
