Is the Quadro K5000 usable right in 2018??

Hi Guys,

My specs:

CPU - 3930k -  usual OC @ 4.1ghz

Mobo-P9X79 Pro

SSD - Samsung 850 pro 512gb

- 2 more caviar black storage drives

GPU - 650 ti boost

I have been using the GTX 650ti boost for years, and I think this is a bottleneck right now.  I have had issues with the GPU error message when trying to export while MPE cuda on.  I think that a new card would be a nice improvement right now.  With cryptomining, GTX cards are at a ridiculous all time high.  I have been searching around and saw that a Quadro k5000 with over 1300 cuda cores was around $500.  This seems to be better than the other cards I have seen.  But is it good?  I know it has lower clock speeds than the GTX cards like the 1050 and 1060, but much higher cuda cores and 4gb of VRAM.  Is more cores better?

If not what card should I get in this crazy market.  I know I should wait but my work issues are starting to give me no option but to start upgrading.

Would a workstation GPU like this be better now that GPU prices have risen?

Thanks

Only compare the number of cores within the same GPU generation, not across them. In fact, the Quadro K5000 does not deliver a sufficient performance boost to justify spending anywhere close to $500 on one because it's actually of the exact same GPU generation - Kepler - as your current GTX 650 Ti Boost. And Kepler just isn't as efficient in using its CUDA cores as newer GPUs, especially Pascal (the one used in the GTX 10## series).

I forgot to add that the memory throughput of that Quadro K5000

I forgot to add that the memory throughput of that Quadro K5000 is not all that much higher than your current GTX 650 Ti Boost - only 173 GB/second for the Quadro K5000 versus 144 GB/second for your GTX 650 Ti Boost. At this GPU level. Premiere relies more heavily on GPU memory throughput than on the sheer number of CUDA cores. Still, 173 GB/second of memory throughput is too low to justify that $500 price tag.
