Hi guys.

I need some help becasue of the GPUs. I'm interested a Nvidia Quadro P4000.I would like to buy it for Poser Pro 11.2. I have a RTX 2070 card which is good anyway. I just want to know your opinion about Quadro.Is it compatible with the Poser?Is this worth buying?I mean the Quadro can do the "job" better as a GPU card?(rendering,raytreck,etc,etc faster and better?)

Thanks for your helping. Have a nice day.

If you're going to pay the price of a new domestic PC, for a workstation graphics card meant for CAD, Revit etc, then the first question is: "Do you have a proper workstation to fit it into, and do you also run a workstation-grade OS able to accept the drivers?" Workstations and their required OS versions can be very picky about such things.

I'd hold off on buying a card till 12 comes out to make sure it works properly with it.

W10, Ryzen 5 1600x, 16Gb,RTX2060Super+GTX980, PP11, 11.3.740

Ditto on holding off until 12 comes out. 11.3 doesn't have proper compatibility with the RTX series; it just recognizes it for functions sake. The 11.2 Poser didn't recognize the RTX cards at all, and the implementation is bare bones in 11.3. P-12 'SHOULD' have a more developed implementation. No idea how fine tuned things will be atm, but you may find the 2070 does a lot more of what you need in version 12.

When I got my new-ish laptop around Thanksgiving last year, I specifically told the sales rep I did NOT want the RTX card because of known issues with software I use on a daily basis, so he substituted it with a new GTX 1660 ti. Unfortunately, I didn't know the newer GTX 1660 ran on the same system as the RTX cards, so I couldn't use the GPU until Bondware took action.

Now I'm wondering why you're saying P11.3 isn't fully compatible with the RTX, and newer GTX cards. What makes you say P11.3 is only set up to recognize the RTX for functions sake? What is it still missing? I'm only asking for information sake, so not looking to start an argument. I'm just curious is all.


OK . . . Where's my chocolate?

11.3 works fine with my RTX card. Better than Blender 2.9 does and faster than the old GTX card on the same scene. But not by much.

With 11.2, Poser didn't recognize the 2000 RTX cards at all. 11.3 is where they addressed that issue, but it was stated that this was a basic driver level implementation, not a fully optimized one; that was going to take more time, so they weren't going to do any more 11. releases, and focus on getting Poser 12 done. The RTX cards support real time raytracing, which should boost the performance of any renderer that ray traces, but only if the time to implement the proper shaders and logic is used. 11.3 can use a Turing card, but it isn't optimized to take advantage of all the tricks. It works, but it doesn't really use the card as it could.

Ahhh, OK. I see your point now. My GTX 1660 ti is also Turing, so that's why it didn't work initially with the earlier versions of Poser 11.

Hopefully they'll have done some work on this for P12. FingersCrossed.png

Have to agree with HartyBart.
