    Pound for pound the 940MX is the budget way to go....for the latest low end chip. This tells me that at that point if an alternative is available like an 870m. "last years" higher end is usually cheaper and better than "this years" budget card.

    GeForce GTX 960M vs 940MX

    Hi to all,
    I have a workstation dual Xeon and I make rendering with Cpu (not Gpu).

    I use these software: Revit, Autocad, 3d Studio + vray plugin, Adobe Suite and suite for structural analysis.

    I need a graphic card because at this moment I use the integrated video card.

    Witch is a minimum card recommended? Quadro, Firepro, Gtx and witch model?

    Many thanks

    I have a new Dell 7510 with a Quadro M2000M and I can't get my render settings corrected. I've set the CUDA - GPU use to None, but each render is a fail. I'm running Revit 2016. Do you have any advice? Thanks!

    For starters, Revit doesn't use GPU to render. Can you create a new thread with your issue. Can I suggest explaining how rendering fails? Do you get a black image, does a dialog box pop up, etc.

    :-)

    I will, but I'm also having the same issue that Revit does not recognize my video card. Even after I installed the driver from Autodesk this morning, and my card is listed as a recommended video card. I do understand that Revit doesn't use GPU to render, that's why I set it to None on the video card.

    Hi Guys! first of all, sorry for not knowing (and using Revit) but a friend asked me what to do since I'm the computer expert. Hardwarewise I know my language, only choosing a GPU for Revit shows my lack in knowledge on the point.
    He wants a computer he can game on, but for his study it would be nice to be able to run Revit. Now my question is; what GPU do I have to take?
    I read everywhere that the Quadro's and Firepro's are to expensive, especially when the Revit usage is occasionaly, and since he just started I don't think it will be intense. here I see that GTX650's are able to run it? because that would mean that the new 1050 (Ti) would be able to do a decent job.
    that or an equivalent AMD card is the choice. does Revit support CUDA or just OpenGL/DirectX?
    furthermore; is 16GB of ram usefull for him? he will a Core i5 6500

    Hello everybody,

    This is my first post in the forum so I am not sure if this is the right place for this question.
    My problem is very close related with the stair handrails and I suspect that it also has a lot to do with my Video Graphic Card. Revit tells me that my Graphic card is not an official GPU but as far as I know there are 100's of GCards that are not official but that work very well with Revit.
    Let me give you some context information:
    - Operating System is Windows 7 Home Edition
    - Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM)
    - Hardware Acceleration bothe checked and not checked

    The problem is that when I insert a handrail stair, if the hardware acceleration option is checked, I would say that aroung 60-70% of the times I insert a Handrail the weird error of the 3D and 2D Error images I insert here happens (it is like Revit were drawing some rays from some vanishing point)


    When I uncheck the accelerating hardware option, the frequency of this error happening reduces quite a bit, but it also happens from time to time. This weird rays are not recognized by Revit, It does not detect this rays, you cannot select them.

    So my question is obviously if anybody knows what could the problem/solution to this, if is a problem of the Graphic card or some configuration parameter etc. For me is something I cant understand, I dont know the exact pattern that produces the error, especially when the Hardware Acceleration option is unchecked but it whos up over and over again.

    Just in case, let me show the Hardware Accelaration option I am refereing to:


    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi GonzaloPolo - welcome to RFO!

    You're pretty much doing everything you can, AFAIK. Keep the HWA off, and save often. Are you using the latest nvidia driver available for that card? If not, try a newer driver.

    The 7300 (7 series) is a decade old now, and is no longer supported with the latest drivers... newer versions of Revit have newer graphic systems that may require updated GPU drivers than what's available for the 7300. Maybe more likely is that those cards have a very limited amount of memory, so that could also be an issue with newer versions of Revit. So it's possible you're out of luck. Keep as few views open as possible, and turn off all the eye candy (turn off shadows, anti-aliasing, etc.)

    That being said, some specific issues with modeling may be related to the model itself, and the GPU is just a trigger, i.e. if you fixed something in the model, it might not crash (not saying that's the case, just saying it's a possibility)

    Best of luck!

    Hello iru69,

    My friend wants to buy a laptop which he can use to work on software like Revit, Lumina, other CAD like applications and for rendering (I'm no expert in these software). Do you think a gaming laptop such as MSI or ASUS ROG will be good for that? The hardware specifications of the models I suggested him are these:
    -> Intel i7 6th/7th gen quad core CPU
    -> 8 GB DDR4 RAM
    -> Nvidia GTX 950M/960M 2GB
    Thank you.

    I have used this forum for reference a lot over the years when making hardware decisions. The updated info about Intel's latest chips and video graphics prompted me to add my two cents.

    We recently purchased new W10 machines. We were able to get i7-7700k, M.2 storage, and 32GB RAM. For the kind of work with do (security and telecom), renderings and pretty 3D views are not very common. However, we do work on large models, with combined linked model file sizes easily over 2GB.

    Compared to our previous setup, Xeon E5-2620 v3, traditional HDD, same RAM, the difference is night and day. Using the RFO benchmark, the new setup is literally twice as fast.

    But all of that is a little off topic. We are still considering our options for GPU. I have been using the integrated graphics for several days with no noticeable difference in our day to day work. I have not had any issues with HWA on. So far we have only compared to a Quadro M2000 because we had one available. Using the RFO benchmark tool revealed a slight edge to the Quadro (81 vs 96, I can post results). I find that pretty remarkable.

    Lastly, I also tested a little with HWA on and off with the integrated graphics. This was in Revit 2017. If anything I would say performance was worse with HWA off. This was most noticeable rotating and working in 3D views. Again, keep in mind the type of work we primarily do.

    At this point I am considering just getting GTX 1050 Ti cards. They are inexpensive and don't require additional power like 1060 on up. This means they should work in our OEM Dell machine configuration/power supplies. I'd be interested to get opinions on that.

    Thanks.
