Hi all,

I know that v4900 is a workstation card and 550ti is a gaming card but both of them come out around same in cinebench(50-60pts). v4900 cost around 50-70% more. would there be any reason to pay more for v4900? would there be any benefits from this card except it drains less power? Please give me some advice. Thanks in advance.

I've personally driven the cost of the V4900 FirePro from $145 to $170 :o  Get one.

It will be workstation and will be using mainly cinema 4d on it. Can anyone tell me how much would I benefit from v4900 over 550ti?

Roughly 25% --- Cinema 4d is a Maxon product. You will need to find Cinebench OpenGL benchmarks for direct comparison. AMD/Maxon have specific application accelerators in their FirePro drivers. In OpenGL, the V4900 generally performs at level with the nVidia Quadro 4000.

Since its release at $145, I've been pimping the V4900 workstation solution. It's a gem of a card that hits a sweet spot in certain applications - Cinema 4D being one of them. Sony Vegas, too.

I suspect it is a matter of timing as much as anything else. Right time & place, right driver version, right applications, etc. It really opens the door (and your eyes) to the powers of GPU compute.

Finally!
