Nvidia Quadro RTX series graphic card

[ Edited ]

Most of the graphics cards listed in the ImageStation 2020 Release Guide are either out of date or at the end of life and are no longer avaialble.  Even the Nvidia Driver 426.00 is old.

 

Is there a new list available?  Also will wither of the two cards listed below work for ISSD, ISFC and ISDM?

 

NVIDIA VCQRTX4000-PB NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 8 GB GDDR6 Graphic Card                                                                 

 

NVIDIA VCQP2200-SB NVIDIA Quadro P2200 PCIe 5 GB GDDR5X Graphic Card                                                

 

Thanks,

Hi Frank,

 

The NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphic card works well for stereo. Higher end cards such as the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000, 6000 and 8000 will also work, but do not provide additional benefits for stereo.

 

Kind regards,

Re: Nvidia Quadro RTX series graphic card

Should this latest question have actually been moved over to the ImageStation thread?

Re: Nvidia Quadro RTX series graphic card

Both cards will work. The 426.00 driver is listed because it is the last one delivered by NVIDIA that includes the 3D Vision USB driver with the graphics driver which makes the setup much simpler. Newer drivers can be made to work, along with a separate 3D Vision driver, but it can be a bit tricky. Also, the newer drivers don't provide any additional benefit for ImageStation stereo applications.

 

When choosing a new graphics card, be aware of what kind of ports it uses, i.e. DP vs. DVI. These two cards only have DP ports, which means if your monitor only has a DVI port then you will need a DP to DVI dual-link adaptor as described in the NVIDIA Driver Configuration Instructions that is delivered wit the ImageStation products. Also be aware that host computer systems that have AMD processors in them do not work well with these adaptors, you therefore need to stick to host systems that use Intel processors, or use monitors that have DP ports in them. 

 

I've attached the latest version of the instructions for your convenience. 

 

HTH,

Eric
