Client has beeb running cad on quadro card.  He was introduced to Lumion on a trial and we've determined that it needs a gaming card like GTX/Titan.  IS there anything special we need to do to make this work (ie CAD on Quadro while Lumion is running on Titan on a seperate monitor)

Just set Lumion to use the non Quadro GPU.  You can do this in the NVIDIA Control Panel (Optimus technology), not sure about Catalyst for Radeon cards.

I do not know if it would be possible to run both side-by-side (one on each GPU) at the same time, most users have a single set-up.  Would be interested in feedback if that happens.

Although some Quadro's are OK and we have users producing content, Lumion does run best with either NVIDIA or Radeon cards, the better the performance the more the capability.  The latest Qaudros re K series say 6000 appear to also have the performance, but there is not a lot of users as yet, as K is new to market.
