You mentioned "After watching the Video" in the main review posts. What what video and what topic...Delidding?
I'm about to purchase parts for a new build from use with X-Plane Flight Sim. Any advise/regrets with what you chose for your build you can share?
I too have a Dual Xeon but E5-2684 v4 28 cores / 56 threads combined and a GTX 980SC EVGA gpu. Like you I don’t play games but use it for 3D Architectural design. Chief Architect X9 and Lumion 8 are my main platforms with a little Photoshop for USGS TOPO map adjustments.
1) assuming you have a comparison, how do the quadro cards compare to GTX cards? Perhaps your colleagues have some data.
2) based on #1) would you go Quadro again?
I ask because the two programs I use recommend GTX over Quadro. Chief is actually moving away from heavy core use with their new PBR engine Vs. their Ray Tracing engine loves all those cores. Lumion too favors the GTX 1080ti GPU and no XEON’s. Both programs favor High GPU memory and Clock speed in both CPU and GPU. I have no idea how the Quadro works with Chief and Lumion.
Thanks for your time and Beautiful System you have.
Are you able to boot from the M.2? I have yet to hear/see and builds with this board specifically describing this boot configuration.
