the best gpu for Lumion:

How about the 4gb HD6990, would it perform better than GTX590 because it has more built in video memory?

ferry while lumion solves the problem with Quadro Cards here is a question:

AMD Radeon HD 6690 or GeForce CTX590?

for my work. Quadro Cards are the best one, but have problems with lumion as we talked before, I'm thinking to install one of those cards on a workstation and test while find a solution for better performance with Quadro 4000 Artur said me you're searching

We are trying to get a Quadro 4000 here in the office to solve your problem. I didn't test both cards so I can't tell you which one is best. Maybe someone tried the ATI? Would love to know how good it is.

Maybe but this only becomes a factor of importance with quite heavy scenes or with very large textures (or both  :D). Keep in mind though to 'halve' the effective memorysize of these dual GPU cards since they can't share total memory size with both GPU simultaniously. In that aspect a single GPU GTX580 with 3GB currently is one of the best cards available.

Thanks Aaron, I couldn't have agreed with you more. It seems to me that they(HD6990 & GTX590) are just a pair of SLI set up video cards which can reduce power consumption and overheating and cost in comparison with buying two 2 x GTX580.

Although GTX590 has 3GB worth or memory built-in, each GPU will has no more than 1.5GB usable ram and in HD6990's case it has 2GB. Therefore, until both ATI or Nvidia come up with a solution to enable total shared memory architecture for multiple GPUs, "In that aspect a single GPU GTX580 with 3GB currently is one of the best cards available." said Aaron.

Hi ferry

I got a new graphic card for another workstation, just now we are testing these three cards:

NVidia GTX 580
AMD 6970 CrossFireX
AMD 6990

but I'm interested in what about Quadro cards. specially Quadro 4000, I remember you got one for testing, if not we can let you for a while our Quadro 4000 card to test it with lumion.

We have the Quadro 4000 now in the office and are installing win xp 64 bit on it. I'll let you know if we also see the problems.
