    Avid Mediacomposer & GeForce/Quadro

    Hi all,

    I suspect you would find a GeForce to be just as good from a performance standpoint. MC doesn't make much use of the GPU unless your are using Sapphire, BCC or Mocha (or other third-party GPU-intensive effects). Quadro cards are manufactured to higher tolerances and with better components for longevity and reliability (in theory) but for the same price you can get a GeForce that packs more punch for applications like BMD Resolve.

    I believe Quadros are better at certain mathematics (floating point operations) but I don't believe this translates into better performance for MC.

    Which specific cards were you looking at?

    Camera(s) PXW-X70, HDR-FX1, Hero 6 Black | MC 2020.6 | QT 7.7.9 | Continuum 2020.5 | Sapphire 2020.5 | Mocha Pro 2020.5 | Titler Pro 7 | Windows 10 Pro... [view my complete system specs]
