The issue of choosing a video card for trideshnik, both for the experienced and for the beginner, very often becomes topical. That or you buy a computer for 3D graphics, whether you want to understand how much your game "old man" still has gunpowder in the flasks, or you think that modern video cards work faster than own, three years ago.

Unfortunately, there is no unambiguousness in this matter. What does the viewport do when working? A video card? No, the scene. The complexity of the models you work with is the main factor that determines the speed of the three-dimensional image. Someone will have enough of an unknown video chip, built into the cheapest processor such as Intel Celeron G1620, because For modern versions of 3ds Max 2010 and higher there is no lower limit to the requirements for the graphics hardware. And someone will not have enough of the best discrete video game card GeForce GTX TITAN X or Kadovskaya Quadro M6000, because the software itself also has performance limitations.

It is very accurate to choose a video card that is right for you at this stage of your 3D work, without a miss in power, and without overpaying, it will not work. But it is possible to conduct a certain averaging of subjective impressions of different users and adhere to a pair of simple rules that are relevant for today.

    
Rule 1: for 3ds Max you need a video game card
    
Rule 2: do not work with non-optimized 3D models
    
Rule 3: a lot of video memory is not needed
    
Rule 4: if the difference is not obvious, take nVidia, not AMD
    
Rule 5: The processor in vyporte is also important

In a nutshell, since the release of the Nitrous engine, the faders of CAD-graphics cards do not have an advantage; A ten-million polygonal chandelier made by an inept 3d specialist will not draw any computer; In the siji, the tendency to do everything under sub-javascript is gaining momentum and to have light base mesh in the viewport; Max can successfully cope with small video memory; Rodeons are famous for problem drivers, although they are not critical at all (everything can be solved); this neighbor does not have such an NVIDIA at all; When the object is selected, modifiers are loaded by the CPU, and even with a fast video card you will have to wait for this upload.

As of June 2015, as in other and a couple of years ago, a discrete video card in the price segment of about USD 100 is an excellent, sufficient, and uncompromising choice for the average performance in 3ds Max. It is very likely that you will not notice the difference compared to the more expensive one. Still, it will not be worse exactly. Again, looking what you do in 3d.

We will consider key, extremely profitable video cards in different price segments. From them, you can boldly start in the choice of a specific iron for your workstation. Please note that we will only consider chips, based on which different companies build video cards. The choice of the manufacturer of the video card is yours. From the first to the third position in each price segment, try to choose the first: it is the most profitable in the price / performance ratio.

Dear RENDERSTUFF sposibo for such a great useful information) one question. Tomorrow Computer new budget will buy for 3D and I offer the graphics card Nvidia GT740 GDDR5 1GB and assure that UTB luchsche than Nvidia GT740 2GB DDR3, both 128-bit and Odinokova Exalt, most forums and talk, but I still disbelief😁 🙂 I would like to know your opinion profesianalnoe.

Abraham, 3ds Max and in particular, in general, the speed of the video card is more important than the limiting amount of video memory. Plus GDDR5 really accelerates the productive performance of the video card, so, given these two features, GDDR5 is better than that of GDDR3, no matter how much memory in the latter was not😉

I need your advice. I work with 3ds Max. There is a possibility to change my 9800 GT to one of the two: FX4600 or GTX 260. What do you think? We need to give an answer, but I can not make a decision, because they do not know the question

Olga, Quadro FX 4600 is a bit worse, GeForce GTX 260 with respect to the best. Those. Quadro FX 4600 version only hurt, and performance improvements in the results of video card is replaced on GeForce GTX 260 is to improve the comfort of work in 3ds Max. But it's on the condition that the exchange will cost less than $ 12. Also, we must note that the power supply has to be prepared for the additional load of 75 watts.

But for example the test SPECpref far as it is close to real life?

For 3dmax

  • gtx950 issued 10.9,
  • gtx980 27
  • against 46.5 for 4600, and is visually much all summer.

Gtx950 fx4600 and tested on the same system with the i5-560 Gtx980 on i5-5600k

Thank you, Max!

Yes, the power supply is powerful enough.

I read in the net about the characteristics of both cards.

This is what is written about Quadro: 2007 article about NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 and NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 .

drnet, sets benchmarks organization Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation designed for commercial and technological tests of video cards for their prozivoditeley, or better to base oneself on users. Therefore, no matter how numerous and neusrednimye results of several subtests in SPECviewperf® and SPECapc for 3ds Max ™ were not close to real life, make them based on any conclusions consumer is not real. Olga, at one time there was a fashion on the video card type Quad, the essence of which was that if you possess such a "professianalno" graphics, you're too professional. Quadro gave a performance advantage in the viewport, but at a certain point for the Max 3ds the nVidia Quardo byssmyslennoy become a waste of money , and this information is incorporated into the first paragraph of this article. I advise you not to fall for tricks and beliefs of people who after years trying to justify its usefulness is not the most successful purchase, and some even fight off an investment in its imaginary "3d coolness". Quardo more - not cool. 🙄 Dear participants of the discussion, please refrain from the discussion with regards to the non-gaming video card: this is contrary to the essence of this publication. Thank you for understanding!

Max, tell GeForce GTX 660 has the right to live in society, 3d max, blender and after effects?

Nikich, yes, of course. Performance GeForce GTX 660 for a traditional uncompromising work with computer graphics is enough even with the stock. Yet, when it comes to buying new parts of the PC, today I recommend to lean toward a more energy-efficient chips, such as the GeForce GTX 750 (Ti) ($ 100), and if finances allow even a small premium, option yet better - GeForce GTX 950 (from $ 140).

You can work in max with Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz processor if it is built-in video card Intel HD Graphics 4600? I want to collect the PC, but I think is not to buy the video card, there is no money for the time being, but we have worked to max.

gene can be, and in a certain style is enough work performance and without buying discrete video card. Yet, for universality, we recommend to plan this upgrade in the form of the acquisition of the video card for the next year.
