Workstation: v8800 vs. Quadro 4000

I'm going to build a new workstation and could use some help in determining whether to purchase Nvidia's new Quadro 4000 or ATI's comparably priced v8800. I've found a couple of benchmark reviews for the Quadro 5000, but nothing yet for the 4000.

My machine will be primarily used for 3ds Max, Photoshop, Flash, After Effects and a bit of Premiere.

(I realize I could have posed this question in the New Build section of the Forums but it seemed more appropriate to ask it here.)

Thanks!

  1. Thanks for digging that up.

    Here's another review I found:

    http://hothardware.com/Reviews/NVIDIA-Unleashes-Quadro-6000-and-5000-Series-Workstation-GPUs-Review/

    That one covers both the 5000 and 6000. Unfortunately I till haven't found anything on the 4000. I posted the question in the comments for the icronic article. Maybe I'll get a bite there.

    Thanks again.
  2. After searching for a 4000 review i got my head messed and thought i was searching for a 6000 review, which is why i posted that, the 6000's aint that hard to find, my mistake.

    If I come across one ill drop it in here, my bad :p

    so -
    p.s. Its only a few days old that card, so im sure some will be popping up soon, but im beginning to think that there simply aren't any online yet.
  4. Ha-- no worries. I was trying to very diplomatically navigate my response to your initial post without making you feel bad about linking me to the wrong card. :)

    I'll keep my eyes peeled as well. Cheers.
