It's a very vague question...what is "they"? Are you talking about workstation cards?

sorry,had to run. let me try 2explain better.

i am planning to use maya and other grafix prog's

i just ordered a hd 6950 going to try reflash2 6970, iill give feedback, of course

not a big game-er. im a subscriber to mpc and cpu mag's. in cpu, someone asked, and i would like to know myself, what are the real performance dif's between my choice above and "professional" cards. real numberes rather than cpu's "magnituded's better" ans.

iknow 300 vs 2000 buys something but im on a budget.

peace

still no reply, ok, i ordered the hd 6950 plan 2 flash it 2 6970. ivalways been a nvidea fan, but fell the need 2 try other cards.

i wish i could do a comparison test between a high end "game" card vs a professional card, the kind that one would use in maya, poser or autocad. especially since iunderstand that they use the same gpu.

was kinda hopin that u bad boys at Mpc would shed some light on my Q.

peace

For professional programs, it is better to have a cheap workstation card than a high-end desktop card. it isn't just the card, its the drivers, which are optimized for workstation programs.

Have you gone to the programs website and looked at the recommended video cards? I know cad programs have a recommended lists plus the specific driver to use with it.

Some apps with not output video to a TV monitor unless you have a supported video card. I use Avid Media Composer but I can't watch it on a TV ( live video preview and not a pc screen ) due to my desktop graphics card ( Radeon 5850 ). I can spread the app in two monitors at once of course but PC monitor colorimetry is not the same as a TVs. So pro-cards do have advantages....but money is always the sticking point.

I would love to have a Mac with FCP and an AJA/Kona3 card to work with but....the funds are just not there. If you are working on video files only and don't have to output to tape of any sort a "lowly" pc graphics card may suffice or now. Once you get good with your apps and you can get money from jobs it becomes more possible to purchase a better pro card.

Like some folks said here look at your product websites ( their forums too of course ) and see what they like you to use.

:roll:

System specs for Maya:

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc ... d=13583877

it says to use a "Qualified hardware-accelerated OpenGLĀ® graphics card" in the specs.
