Is there someone who have tried the geforce 970 4 GB with Lumion?

in the benchmark the videocard is in the top 3 for ± $330

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

the memory size is 4GB of the card.

and geforce says the following over the card.

The GeForce® GTX™ 970 is a high-performance graphics card designed for serious gaming. Powered by new NVIDIA® Maxwell™ architecture, it features advanced technologies and class-leading graphics for incredible gaming experiences.


And because of the price my question is is the card that good and also that good for lumion?

if i look closer to the list. the Geforce 980 is even better than the Titan Black.

the $200 above the 970 is that it worth or not?

Hi

There was one member who was considering purchase of 980, and I have asked for an update, but I think he's still on leave.

For Lumion, always consider the two key factors:
1. performance ie speed of the card for your FPS and work whilst creating scenes and also render times.  If a card saves 2 hours a week in rendering time, it might pay for itself, but if that rendering time is always overnight, the value of that time saved may not be as high.
2. amount of VRAM for ability to handle larger or more complex projects.

Wow. That's the same benchmark as another member got with a 980.
