Hello Lumion team and other supporters of this wonderful program.
I have a question for you:
We want to install a Dell T7600 workstation in our company with a business card Quadro graphics NVIDIA 6000 and the question is:
Is someone working with this graphics card in Lumion?
If yes the answer, I could say that it works, or you have detected a problem of compatibility with Pro 2.5 Lumion. ??? ???
All information you can give us will be very helpful for us, as this graphics card is very good but also very expensive.

thanks in advance

a greeting, Severino

Hi Severino
here is the answer in picture
Personally I use a GTX 670 2go and that works very well
If you have more money watches the GTX 670 4go better quality / price report of the cards with 4go

For just Lumion, I decent gaming card with at least 3gb ram works well for us.  I co-own an architectural firm and have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on software and hardware.  Quadro cards are mainly bought for the drivers associated with the software - like Revit, Max, Sketchup and Max.  I always spec the medium end card, never the high end Quadros cards for Revit, as an example. 

Lumion however, will run fast on far less expensive "gaming" video cards with great results.  That's what is great about Lumion's engine - it doesn't require stand alone custom driver support.  My work desktop has a nvidia GT 560Ti, home has a 580 gtx and laptop has a 560m.

Hi Severino

We have some Dell wokstations (4 T5400,  2 M6500, one T7600...) and I have spent a lot of money in quadro cards (4000, 5000, 5000M, 5010M...) and was thinking in a new invest buying a Quadro 6000, but having tested all quadro cards with lumion we opted for buy GTX series 580 (Gainward Phantom) with 3Gb and recently a 680 (Gainward Phantom) with 4Gb.

We decided to use Quadro cards for other vectorial software and dedicate those GTX cards with Lumion. Anyway, We've had some problems in one T5500 with GTX 680 Phantom and we don't know which is the problem, maybe new drivers aren't still optimized.

In my humble oppinion, don't spend your money if you are only thinking in use a Quadro card with Lumion, and of course not a Quadro 6000 which cost is over 3.900 USD, But if you are still interested in Quadro 6000 I can tell you where buy it with a reasonable price in USA (PNY brand manufacturer).

regards.
