I am thinking of buying a new patching computer, I am doing a project right now which involves a lot of video-processing and interactivity.
can anybody tell me what system specs are the best for this kind of projects?
before I buy something that is very good, but not for these things
i’d like to pipe in here, and make sure that the graphics card of the new machine i’ll probably buy will work properly with vvvv?
It’s a Quadro FX 770 M. There’s no problem/ driver issue/ shader issue with the Quadro series, right?
why a quadro card ? quadros are cool for CAD programs, engineers. a friend of mine has one and v4 runs fine as far as i know. anyway i’d get a mobile version of the 9800 chip…like the GeForce 9800M GTX. standard geforce cards are good for games hence for v4…that’s my simple rule.
@artvt , get an intel quad core, a geforce 8800GTX or better, a mainboard with more than one PCI-X graphicscard slot is always usefull for multiple outputs.
if u want to do lots of video stuff, streaming from the harddisc, get some 10.000 rpm raptor HD in a RAID. expensive but quick.
what else ? lots of ram, sturdy metal case and insurance ;)
simply because my uni has a nice offer for a range of laptops right now, and the laptop i’d like to have happens to have this card built in, without option to change it. so i wanted to know if there is some kind of knock-out thing about this card i don’t know about before buying. i’m aware of the CAD-optimisation, but i don’t think it’s too bad, is it?
and what impact does “CAD-optimisation” have on graphics performance liquid? and (why) is that a knock-out criterion?
i heard it optimizes for multiple windows instead of fullscreen renderers? and that it can be “persuaded” by alternative drivers to consider itself a “gaming card”
