Quadro Graphics card for CAD PCs
Need help deciding on which graphics card is right for your CAD PC.
Nobody relies on just one
application over the course of a day; we're all bouncing between
disparate tasks and windows. But for the majority of CAD professionals,
there is one application that dominates your day. It might be SolidWorks
or AutoCAD, Inventor, CATIA, or Solid Edge.
Once you've identified that
app, head to the web to find its suggested minimum hardware
requirements. Now, don't settle on these baseline numbers and think
you're going to be happy. In most cases, minimum requirements set an
extremely low bar. SolidWorks (as of this writing) specifies a minimum
of 1 GB RAM, but suggests 6 GB. Well, even 6 GB isn't necessarily the
best choice, depending on your budget, and especially given the amazing
amount of memory that can be had for not a lot of dollars.
Not only do you need to consider which CAD application you use most, but
also how. Factors that call for more than the average specs for RAM
and/or graphics horsepower include working with large assemblies and
complex parts (such as plant and routing design), rendering, and running
first-pass finite-element and kinematic analyses.

will take you to a chart that will show you which Quadro card is right
for your CAD application.

More Information on buying a CAD
Your Choice of CPU for CAD
dominant thrust in CPU architecture has shifted away from
accelerating single-threaded processors and toward developing
parallel processing, with the latest professional CPUs moving from
dual-core to quad-core and now hex-core processors. Multicore CPU
approaches have proved a great avenue to gain theoretical speed-ups,
but when it comes to modeling with most mechanical CAD packages,
including AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidWorks, and Solid Edge, you won't
benefit much from multiple cores, as those applications are not yet
optimized for multicore processing. On the other hand, engineering
simulation and rendering — whether performed discretely or via a
renderer embedded in one of the aforementioned design packages — do
tend to utilize multiple processing cores. If that’s the case for
your primary rendering engine and if you spend significant time on
these tasks, you’ll want to consider shifting more of your budget
toward a good graphics card that can handle the workload.
Power for Speedups Across the 3D Modeling Workflow
more importantly in today’s 3D environment, you'll want to pay
closer attention to the GPU you're choosing to power your MCAD,
rendering, and simulation applications. Today's GPUs bear little
resemblance to the graphics controllers of old. Forget old-school
wireframes and primitive solid models with smooth-shaded sides.
Professional graphics cards offer the ability to realistically
display parts and models and keep your viewports fluid even when
working with complex projects. But graphics are only the beginning
of what these new GPUs can tackle. These engines also offer a whole
lot more processing horsepower — work that has always tended to bog
down CAD pros.
foremost, with the right GPU in place, you’ll notice remarkable
performance in terms of how your 3D software responds to panning,
rotating, zooming, generating animations, and all those other tasks
that push the limits of a lesser processor. Such a fundamental
improvement in how you interact with your software can bring about
dramatic gains in productivity and overall user satisfaction.
GPUs are also rendering raster-based images in real-time that rival
anything off-line Hollywood render farms could manage just a few
years ago. But more than that, GPUs have broken through all the
preconceived limits we'd previously set for them, taking on
processing that traditionally was left to the CPU. That means CAD
professionals can now leverage their investment in graphics hardware
to achieve far more than anything yesterday's graphics cards could
have ever hoped to achieve.
Accordingly, you're going to want to spend at least as much time
considering your choice of GPU, and quite possibly a bigger portion
of your budget as well. Which GPU should today's CAD pros choose?
Well, most buyers will want to match the performance and
capabilities of the GPU with the rest of the system — that is, an
entry-caliber card for an entry-caliber workstation. Good balance,
where each component hits a performance level that is supported by
the rest of the system, is the best way to maximize ROI for your
Computing. Your questions about selecting a GPU should no longer be
limited solely to which GPU, but also how many, thanks to GPU
computing. Virtually every corner of the MCAD world utilizes the
same basic workflow: design, revise, analyze, then iterate. Two
common components in this iterative workflow, finite-element
analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), employ
algorithms that rely on heaps of floating-point arithmetic and can
be run in parallel to gain significant increase in throughput. It's
a similar story for raytraced rendering, a technique that is so
fundamentally different from conventional raster-based rendering
that it more naturally falls under the category of GPU computing
than graphics. Images rendered by a raytracer immediately catch the
eye, making it one of the most sought-after visual tools for product
styling. With NVIDIA's GPU compute–enabled iray, a rendering engine
found in popular software such as Autodesk 3ds Max, Bunkspeed Shot,
and CATIA v6, designers are seeing visualization times shrink from
hours to minutes. With that speed, designers can leverage raytracing
earlier and more frequently in the development process, fine-tuning
designs based on photorealistic feedback.
