For some more gains with Adobe software, consider a Quadro card over a GeForce: video editing programs utilize more OpenGL features (Quadro cards fully implement OpenGL features, while GeForce are more DirectX gaming cards). And if you have a monitor with wider gamut support, PS can be run with 10bpc color mode with a Quadro card.


As there is a large price difference between quadro and GeForce cards, have you seen any benchmarks that show it’s worth the extra $$.

There is this video that sort of explains part of the reason to get a Quadro, are the AMD cards less?

While I would have liked to put a Quadro card in, the cost just did not justify it. Both support OpenGL 4.5. The Quadro P6000 is close to $5k, while the ASUS Strix 1070 was only about 1/10 of that. The 24MB of RAM on the Quadro would be nice, but the GeForce has 8MB, more than enough for what I am using it for. Additionally, the Quadro uses an additional 100 watts of power, so I would have had to gone to an even larger power supply. So, for me, the 1070 is more than sufficient. I built the entire system for about $2200 and am very pleased with it so far. No crashes or lockups. All of the drivers seem to be behaving themselves well. And the liquid cooling system I put in is keeping the CPU at a very reasonable temperature. But, you a right, in that the Quadro is one heck of a card. I just couldn't justify it to myself (or my wife) that I needed to spend that much on a video card that doesn't provide the cost to benefit ratio that I would need.

GeForce and Quadro cards are made for different tasks, so it's hard to give an exact number as to speed differences. Quadro cards are more a niche market and as such are more expensive compared to an equivalent GeForce. I do 3D animation, and have found a Quadro card is necessary for correctly rendering a scene and can be faster at rendering video due to memory speed/full OpenGL support. AMD does make a competing line called Fire Pro. I tried one once, and would never use AMD again. That card would not render a scene correctly and actually wound up corrupting my scenes.

So nothing applicable to photography or videography?

As I said in a previous post, there are certain features Quadro cards allow for. With Photoshop, you can have 10bit per channel color space. With AfterEffects and Premiere, they utilize OpenGL for certain effects and rendering: which can be more stable and faster at certain tasks.

Anyone here running an AMD Vega card?

Would like to hear what you think of it?

FlipxJB,,do you find a noticeable difference between 16 and 32gb of ram for pic editing,,,,if you are in a postion to compare the difference. More info in this area would be appreciated.

That's a serious build. What kind of stuff are you doing that needs that much power?

No, you wouldn't notice a difference between 16 and 32 with editing photos. when you export on Lr, it will only use about 9gb or so if i remember correctly.

Well... i was actually looking at the 1920x threadripper cpu until i saw that the 1950x went on sale for 799, so i decided to just go bigger. i work with premiere pro and after effects quite often.

I think it depends on the kind of editing. If you're familiar with the brenizer method which is stitching large amounts of photos together, it can be quite hardware intensive. I tried doing one with 70 RAW images and 22/32GB of RAM was being used!
