NVIDIA Quadro P2000, 5GB Graphics Card

  • We are currently in the process of replacing some of our Revit workstations and the graphics cards that are installed as standard are:


    NVIDIA Quadro P2000, 5GB Graphics Card


    I appreciate that these are slightly older graphics cards, but are more than adequate for Revit (and as always we are on a tight budget). I would be interested in how well these cards run / cope with Enscape.


    Any feedback would be most appreciated.

  • Trav72 , generally, depending your budget (and in case you don't specifically have to acquire a Quadro), I can recommend a NVIDIA RTX 2060, 2070, 2080 or the RTX 2080 Ti, but the 2060, 2070 and 2080 will already be able to run Enscape fluently and you'll also be able to make use of VR with these cards. :)

  • Why would you recommend a GTX 1070 when the RTX 2060 is both cheaper, better and employ specialized ray-tracing cores that will soon (currently in preview version) be used by Enscape to further increase the advantage...?



    Even a GTX 1660ti will be on par with the GTX 1070 for half the price.

  • Trav72 , generally, depending your budget (and in case you don't specifically have to acquire a Quadro), I can recommend a NVIDIA GTX 1060, GTX 1070/GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1080 or up to a GTX 1080 Ti. While the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 are already capable of rendering Enscape on high settings fluently, the GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1080 / GTX 1080 Ti are recommended if you plan to use Enscape on its highest settings in VR.


    As mentioned by snowyweston , you could indeed pick up a 1060, 1070 or even a used 1080 probably for the same money you'd spend on the P2000. :)

    any specific reason as to why you recommend the old generation of gtx cards, and not the new RTX breed, with support for hardware rtx that enscape soon supports? personally i would recommend a 2070, 2080 or 2080ti :-) These are MUCH newer cards!

    Yeah you're right Herbo :) I adjusted my response - the Quadro P2000 is around 400-500€, but even the RTX 2070 can be had for that much. In the long run it's definitely better to go with the newer RTX cards, especially if one is not on a rather tight budget!
