Quadro 6000 or nVidia Titan
Hello people, Please give me advise. I am working on 3D's Max, Auto Cad. My current video card is nVidia 9800 GTX. I plan to buy Quadro 6000. But few days ago I watched the technical parameters of new Titan video card and the tech details made me to think "Should I buy new Titan for ~1000 USD or Quadro 6000 for ~5000/~6000 usd. Please help me to make a right selection and please tell me what's so special on Quadro video cards? For example right now I use 9800 GTX, that is not from Quadro series but my 9800 GTX nearly enough for me. Thank you everyone

I have nearly the same question. Building a CAD & rendering workstation. Tagged the Quadro 4000 until I saw the specs on Titan. Now very confused with no apparent comps available anywhere. Titan is retailed as a gaming card, but the architecture seems to be similar to Quadro. With 6GB on card and a huge number of Cuda cores on Titan, am I missing something? The Q4000 and Titan are very close in price, but I fear there is some fundamental coding or other reason to stay with Quadro that I don't know about. I join Hici - help! Thanks

You can't just compare the hardware specs(clocks, memory count, # of cores etc...). There are alot differences between the Geforce and the Quadro family of GPUs. Although the documentation from the link below is old, this should give you a better idea which one is suitable for your application. http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37 For additional info, please check it out here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro.html

Thanks GeforceDave, read the white paper. You are right, its old, but establishes enough reason to go with Quadro. K5000 will be my choice. thank for the help.
