Hi youssef kamand
The Quadro K4100M has a Passmark of only 2557. That's going to be OK for basic scenes.
1. LUMION 5: Minimum hardware requirements
. (same for prior versions)
2. Lumion Web Site: Specifications
3. Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks
A basic scene is roughly a single building and some entourage with minimal interior objects. Something like some of the sample scenes in v5 or in Free v3.2.1.
If CAD requirements are not the key and major reason to purchase, then you may, in terms of Lumion, be better off considering a standard graphics card, for which Lumion is designed to work with. Pricing is also better with standard cards such as NVIDIA GTX or AMD/ATI Radeon cards.
We do have users that are doing their CAD design on standard cards.
Also because you are considering mobile/laptop hardware, be aware that both Quadro and standard cards have a much lower performance that their counterpart desktop ones.
The Quadro K5000M is the closest to the one you are looking at. It's Passmark performance is 2881. On our Benchmark chart as Gilson mentions, that came in with 8500 so you could expect the K4100M to be somewhere around 7500.
