Which Nvida 4000 Card
on Aug 23, 2011 at 11:18:50 pm

Hi Folks!

I'm trying to build a system for a Resolve Lite at first.
Searching the NVIDIA page, I found that there are 2 options for the NVIDIA 4000 Card for Mac,
What is the diference betwen them an what is the most recomendable.

Mac Pro 8 core
ATI Radeon HD 5770


Thanks
Best regards
Dario

The Mac version is the one to use for a Mac Pro although it will also works on non-Mac systems.

The standard (non-Mac) version may not work and is not supported on a Mac Pro.

Hi Alex!

Thanks on your fast reply, but i'm still confusing

I understand that i must use a Nvidia 4000 for Mac, but under this tag in the NVIDIA webpage, there are 2 cards to choose from.

This is the link

It's one and the same, the two "appearances" are from two stores, Amazon and Newegg.

The non-mac version definitely does not work in a Mac or Cubix expander connected to a mac.

I have two PC quadro 4000's for sale if anyone wants them.... $1,000aud for both.

Just to clarify, I've got a Quadro FX 4800 which will run inside my PC workstation, or inside a GPU-Xpander connected to my PC workstation. It will not work if installed in a Mac Pro, or if installed into a GPU-Xpander attached to the Mac Pro. OS-X requires a version of these cards with firmware specific to OS-X (or if you're fortunate, a flashed GTX 470).

Like others in this thread, I've also heard that the OS-X specific NVIDIA cards can be installed into Windows or Linux machines with the proper drivers loaded and run just fine.
