Mid-Range Workstation GPU Shootout : FireGL V5600 vs. QuadroFX 1700 vs. FireGL V3600
Spec ViewPerf 10
Our first round of ViewPerf 10 OpenGL tests don’t showcase a clear winner between the mid-range cards. 3dmax is neck and neck between the QuadroFX 1700 and FireGL V5600, whereas Nvidia powers a win in the Catia benchmark. The FireGL V5600 takes wins in both Ensight and Maya, where the QuadroFX 1700 sits in second place and the V3600 sits in last. Again, solid Maya performance from the ATI camp, solid Catia performance from Nvidia.
