We've recently started utilizing OpenRoads ConceptStation heavily, but using our 2GB R7 250 GPU is taking quite some time to render anything. Money is not an issue, I just need to know what Graphics Card is best utilized in this process. If had a card with 11GB of VRAM would it take full advantage of that? Do the Quadros have an advantage over the GTX series? Does CUDA core count matter?
The product readme files usually only specify the minimum requirements. To my knowledge, our testing group has not done any kind of performance testing to compare the different cards/features. The LumenRT functionality included in ConcepstStation is really what needs the performance from the GPU, so you might get more responses on the LumenRT user forum here: https://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/microstation_visualization/f/visualization-forum-1977638070#pi25949=1
Have a look here, noting comments about FireStrike values: https://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/microstation_visualization/w/microstation_visualization_wiki/33840/system-requirements-lumenrt-connect-edition
The links to the Futuremark site compare values for different card types (although not workstation cards that I could see).
Might have to look for workstation card reviews to get results for Quadro cards (eg https://www.servethehome.com/nvidia-quadro-p6000-high-end-workstation-graphics-card-review/)
Here is a recent video comparing the latest consumer and professional graphics cards in CAD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-90qEJAVkU
The software they used for testing is SolidWorks. I haven't seen any testing with regards to MicroStation.
Well here is a great round up of some of the best workstation graphics cards for professional use graphicscardhub.com/.../
