đánh giá quadro k4000

As far as graphics cards go, Nvidia và AMD are at the head of the paông xã. Given Apple’s recent inclusion of AMD only on their lathử nghiệm Mac Pro, the competition is heating up.

For the longest time I built my own computers, not really focusing on my graphics thẻ solution because in the end they all achieved relatively the same level of greatness, as far as I was concerned.

Years ago it was my ATI All-In-Wonder card that helped me get started in editing. However, today we are being forced to choose sides, and not all graphics cards are created equal. Trying to see what graphics thẻ will suit you isn’t always clear: Do I want the AMD thẻ that has 6GB of 384-bit GDDR5 or will the Nvidia thẻ with 3GB of 192-bit GDDR5 memory vày the trick? Everyone has their own needs và budget.

So full disclosure: I’m an Nvidia guy. On a daily basis I use Adobe’s After Effects & Photosiêu thị, và Avid’s Media Composer/Symphony.

With Nvidia Quadro pro graphics solutions combined with the Adobe CC or CS6 you are definitely working with the powerhouse of teams. Adobe leverages the parallel processing power in the Nvidia Quadro GPUs such as in After Effects with its Optix raytracing engine and in Premiere with the Mercury Playbaông chồng Engine providing great realtime video clip effect playbaông chồng. At the moment Adobe does not tư vấn raytracing with an AMD thẻ, not even the cards in the newest Mac Pro. You will get a little error message when you try and enable it, big bummer.


I was sent the Nvidia Quadro K4000 graphics card (which sells for around $800) pre-installed inside of a HP Z420 workstation. First off let me tell you, if you aren’t tired of me pumping up the HPs by now, the HP workstations are incredible. I’ve used the Z820s and now the Z420s. They are beautifully engineered and extremely easy lớn open and modify.

Once I received the workstation I wanted to take it apart because if I am a small business owner I don’t know if I can necessarily afford to send my workstation out lớn get upgraded. It’s almost lượt thích fixing your car yourself as opposed to lớn bringing it to lớn the dealership to get fixed. Yes the dealership will most likely bởi it right & stand behind their work with name br& parts but at what cost? So don’t tell HP., but I disassembled the entire system, including the Quadro K4000 graphics card, scrambled all the parts around (on an anti-static mat of course), và let my two-year-old try và build his first workstation. Kidding. But I really did take all the components out và reassemble the machine. It was easy; with a little bit of techno-nerdiness anyone will be able to lớn fix their system, or at least have a part sent khổng lồ them by HPhường. và be walked through the repair. Truly easy, & the case doesn’t have sầu razor sharp edges, a definite plus.

Power & PerformanceOn the tech side, the Quadro K4000 was built on the Kepler architecture, which is a significant improvement over the past Ferngươi architecture. In simple terms it dramatically brought down the power consumption và increased the performance, delivering approximately three times the performance per watt of Fermi. Who doesn’t love sầu to lớn add, “We’re an energy conscious company” to lớn their Twitter profile?

The K4000 contains 768 CUDA cores, 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 memory providing a bandwidth of 134GB/s, max power consumption of 80W (versus 142W from the Ferngươi architecture), one DVI-D output, và two Display Port 1.2 outputs — all ports can now be used at the same time as well as one Display Port khổng lồ support a total of four displays using a connection hub. That’s an incredible package just in the nerd-stats section.

Once I reassembled my HP Z4trăng tròn I turned on my 27-inch LED backlit IPS monitor and booted into Windows 7. I immediately downloaded and installed Avid Media Composer 7.0.3 và the Adobe CC Suite — since I mostly wanted khổng lồ focus on NLE tốc độ with the Quadro K4000 I jumped inlớn Media Composer và Premiere first.

NLEsMedia Composer takes advantage of Nvidia graphics cards such as the Quadro K4000. You won’t necessarily see outright labels on what effects will be sent to lớn the GPU for processing but Avid and Nvidia have come together khổng lồ harness the parallel distributing power khổng lồ process effects that would normally be sent to lớn the CPU và process them concurrently on the K4000.

Naturally, the more processing power you have sầu the faster your machine will run. I didn’t really notice the power of the Quadro K4000 inside of Media Composer with just a few effects & a title. However, I did notice a tremendous difference when processing effects on multiple layers of đoạn phim with multiple titles. It went from being able khổng lồ barely play the timeline lớn being able lớn add more than double the amount of video clip layers and titles without a slowdown. To be fair, these were realtime effects that we all know don’t usually play in realtime if they are layered on top of each other, but they played with the Quadro K4000 installed, definitely a breath of fresh air.


I’ve sầu always loved Adobe Premiere. I used it when I was in high school & I used it in college. Professionally, I haven’t had paid opportunities to use it yet, but I think that is about lớn change. So anyway, inside of Premiere is where you will see a huge tốc độ increase with a graphics thẻ such as the Quadro K4000. When using effects such as the three-way color corrector, multiple blur types, track mattes, the warp stabilizer, and many more, the Quadro K4000-powered Mercury Playbaông chồng Engine really clicks inlớn gear.

You will see some significant ability in multicam viewing, however, don’t forget to take inlớn tài khoản that when working with multiple streams of HD đoạn phim, you will also be limited by your internal/external hard drive’s disk tốc độ and connection speed. The better the connection speed & speedier the RAID, the more likely you will be running 12 streams of HD Clip at once in a split screen for a live switch.

Finally, when exporting QuickTimes from the Adobe suite, I noticed a speedier of an export when using a high-over Nvidia Quadro card lượt thích the K4000. Since technically the GPU doesn’t vị anything lớn speed up the export, the stress it takes off of the CPU helps gain a little speed on the export, và we could always use faster exports.

I will only touch on After Effects since it really wasn’t a focus of this review, but how could I not emphakích thước the ability of raytracing with the Nvidia OptiX công nghệ (one of the few vendor-specific features Adobe relies on)? In addition, one of my favorite plug-ins to use on a daily basis is Video Co-Pilot’s Element 3 chiều, which works with Nvidia as well as AMD cards, but seems lớn love the Quadro K4000. If you’ve ever worked with Element3D you know how easy it makes working with 3 chiều objects inside of After Effects, & the better your graphics card is the easier it is to light, move, dolly, và finesse your creations.

Summing UpIn the end, the benefits that the workstation class graphics cards of Nvidia provide are worth the price of admission. If you have the money lớn purchase an Nvidia Quadro card such as the K4000, or even the behemoth K6000, vị it. You can dramatically speed up a fading system with the purchase of a high-over, workstation-class graphics thẻ from Nvidia.

In addition, many application crashes can be a result of low-màn chơi graphics cards and/or faulty drivers. So if you are looking khổng lồ increase your abilities in your workstation, then go find a Quadro K4000 khổng lồ throw into lớn that machine và feel the difference for yourself. It will shave time off of your renders & outputs, which means more money in your wallet.
