Your budget of 2500Eu should get a nice one. You may have upgraded, but will your Quadro video card work? As a result it's important to pick your processor wisely and try to remain cost effective. The T5400 has an 875W Ps for comparison. I am learning Revit, a 3D program with big files and a lot of rendering power needed. I did have a bad feeling with that Quadro card - now I have the hassle of selling it. Isn't this exactly what you are looking for? We didn't see that in the professional applications.
Because if they did there'd be no reason to buy Quadros. As for your question about a good system, I am not aware of being able to actually build a laptop, only to choose among the makers. Designs are become more complex over time, growing in size and detail. Because otherwise there'd be no reason to buy Teslas. This i7 appears to be a good overclocker and poking around the overclocking world, appears to be very stable at say 4. See related liquid cooling listing below! One can see that the cooler is a single slot active cooling unit that exhausts to the rear. Edit: Passmark benchmarks are completely irrelevant when it comes to Autodesk software.
If at all possible, see the monitors in person and review carefully the appearance, color correction and controls. Easy to clean, and very upgradable. As the models became large, each time I changed the viewpoint, the wait to regen was frustrating. I'm not doing harsh number crunching, video editing, rendering or anything like that mostly viewing in 2d wireframe or loose geometry in Navis but i don't want to have to wait for my image to appear while i'm rotating it around.

Professional applications are increasing in features and sophistication, enabling users to create more realistic models, adding textures, lighting, and atmospheric effects, allowing customers to evaluate designs more thoroughly before creating costly prototypes, to speed time to decision and time to market. Note the 2D score is similar but the 3D score is substantially higher than the No.
Model a Century of oceanic current dynamics for the high school science fair! This is done to segment the market so nvidia can segment the market and pretend it's three different product lines when in fact they sell the same hardware to budget-conscious gamers as to graphics pros and research institutes. After swapping the test bed to the K4000 we saw completely different behavior. The highest 3D rating machine is rated overall at 4523, using an i5 2500K 3. Perhaps if I ask to my boss, to build a new one for the office. Later I think I will build a desktop.
Again, this was selected quickly and I am not recommending this particular one, but it demonstrates how high the specification of these laptops can be. Thank you for sharing your experience with professional graphics cards. I choose to use Geforce series because most of the work we do is in Wireframe and Realistic views and the difference in cost between the two series of cards is too substantial to justify. Be aware that the Quadro 4000 is known to run hot and when buying used, find out what kind of use and any history of possible overheating. André, To me, the choice of graphics card is every day more difficult. I i was looking for some laptop models. All worked fine from driver installation to setting up dual monitors.
I have never read of anyone else reporting the severe performance penalty of the Win 7 Classic and Aero themes, but there we are. I am going to have a 2560 X 1440 monitor as soon as I can if only because small size fonts are not refined enough in 1920 X 1080 for good graphic design. Why don't Teslas have graphics ports? And if you advice to get the 5000 which version shall I buy. But after i read your post, i turn a little confuse. I did learn that view regens depend on the amount of geometry that is visible, so I learned to navigate over the model in plan or around the edges and then zoom in to the position I wanted at the very last so that the least amount of 3D trees and other polygon rich objects were visible. It was extremely long but had some great information on it. It starts and loads programmes and files faster, but the time savings is not so wunderbar, ausgezeichnet, oder fantastisch that I am overwhelmed by the speed.
Thanks bambiboom for your detailed post. A large monitor with good resolution is very important- all the menus to have, plus not having to zoom in and our every five seconds. No 2 highest 2D, has a rating of 4656, this on an i7 2600K 3. Leave this field empty if you're human:. The Autodesk application I think is the most demanding is the Product Design Suite Ultimate, a vast program which includes AutoCad, Mechanical Inventor Pro with simulation, 3ds Max, Mudbox, Electrical, and much more.
Other Thoughts: In terms of raw power, this card is great, better than the quadro 5000 not sure about the k5000 yet. Then I discovered Passmark Performance Test- and surprise and disappointment. Yeah I think I have to sell the quadro card and get me a Geforce instead - which one would you choose? If you have any helpful information please feel free to post on the forums. I very much like being able to choose 64X anti-aliasing! The Xeon x5460 in my T5400 benchmarks 4470 for a rank of 229. With 2012 SolidWorks now allows Hardware accelerated Ambient Occlusion to be enabled. The power supply would be enough if it were 600W instead of 750W.
But, there were a surprising and informative reversal. Also, Passmark is in my view weighted to favor parameters that make good gaming cards. It is better for me, having portability, like 15. For many users the two DisplayPort out ports are going to be key. It says it supports direct x 11.
