Any point in using a Nvida Quadro for 3shape as of 3shape 2020?

I'm putting together a PC and I've got everything speced out for what I want, only I just wanted to check if there's any point in getting a Quadro at this point in time. I know in the past 3shape was not optimized for Quadros and everyone's advice was just to stick to GeForce cards, but wanted to see if anyone else was running a Quadro with 3shape 2020 and if there are any meaningful benefits from doing so?

use whatever you can get, really.

My experience is that 3shape is not optimized for anything... On paper, 3Shape should fly on my new PC. But in many aspects it is still as sluggish as it was on the original PC.

yeah, you'd be pretty right. though i have to believe the new Ryzen architecture of common cache for all cores will help that. cause it means all the cores get their massive L3 cache.

If you go quadro get a good one. I did a P4000 and it was smooth. I have a M4000 in my wieland Cam dual Xeon 16core 32gb setup and it is nice. But since the crypto and gaming freak are sucking up all the GPU's get which ever one you can/ The 3060 or 3070 RTX will also do. 3Shape is not fully dependent on graphics cards and it wont use cuda core either.

3Shape is now shipping computers with Quadro p1000/p20000 cards. When I enquired as to why I was told "
probably a performance upgrade" but I'm assuming its just the RTX shortage

Im running a M4000 on a dual 8 core zeon hyperthreading. My friend is running a P4000 on a amd threadripper builder, very smooth.

Is there any way to objectively benchmark the performance for 3shape (not irrelevant synthetic benchmarks) of quadro RTX (or even the new A-series) vs Geforce RTX... and can the software take advantage of multiple cores or does it depend on higher clock speeds?

Those threadrippers are nice, but their TDP is very high and can make thermal dissipation difficult with the subsequent throttling. Originally tried aircooling, but they got saturated real quick. Ended up having to use liquid metal along with an AIO watercooling just to prevent thermal throttling.
