If you are in production environment where you need maximum reliability or do a heavy amount of noise reduction, there is no replacement for workstation-class cards like those in the NVIDIA Quadro line. But exactly how well do the new Quadro RTX models perform in DaVinci Resolve?
Many users require the use of a workstation graphics card as that is the only way to display 10-bit color in Photoshop. But will an NVIDIA Quadro or an AMD Radeon Pro video card give you the best performance for your dollar?
If your workflow depends on having 10-bit color support on your primary display, using a workstation graphics card is typically the only way to do so since most consumer cards do not support displaying 10-bit color. But do you really need a Quadro P6000 or can you use a much less expensive card like the Quadro P4000 or Radeon Pro WX 9100 without sacrificing very much performance?
Pix4D is an advanced photogrammetry application, suited to wide range of uses, with a focus on handling images captured by drone cameras. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes / textures utilizes the video card (GPU) in a workstation, but how much impact do different cards make on overall performance?
