Nvidia Quadro P4000 vs. RTX 2090 S

I got an Nvidia P4000 last spring, and have had trouble with it ever since. Half the time my PC reboots, it doesn't detect the card. It got so bad that I eventually took it out altogether and ran an older K4200 with my Windows 7 system which always ran flawlessly.

So, now I just built a new Windows 10 system. Intel i9 8 core CPU, 64 gigs memory, booting from an M.2 card (which I didn't even know existed before building this thing). Just blows my 9-year-old Win7 system away. 


But I still can't use the P4000! Windows would not boot with the card installed with Nvidia drivers without going through a repair sequence. Eventually, the system just quit seeing the card at all. Also, I really ought to mention that the P4000 not once outputted any video on the new machine.

The good news is that PNY will replace the card, after many, MANY attempts at tweaking & twiddling and resintalling Windows and resintalling drivers, moving cards around, updating Windows, BIOS, firmware...snooze....

So, long story short - I now know a bit more about what to get, and it looks to me like an RTX 2080 S would be a better card, for the same price as the P4000. I'm hoping to convince PNY to replace the P4000 with the RTX 2080 S - what do you guys think? Benchmark websites all seem to point at the RTX as a better choice, but I wanted to check with the community first.

I do a lot of video editing in PP,  photo processing in LightRoom, 3D stuff in Blender, and music production with Nuendo and a UAD DSP card.

Thanks!

As the adage goes, unless you have an articulable reason why you need a Quadro, you don't need a Quadro. 

The 2080 Super is a much better option than the P4000, but it is not the best option. 

For the money, it has too little VRAM. You can get a 2060 Super for half the price with the same amount of VRAM. 

If you want more VRAM you could go for the 2080 Ti 11GB, or the new RTX Titan 24GB. 

The RTX 2060 Super is still 40% faster than a P4000, it's only $400, so I suggest you go with that.

Well, I cannot speak for Cyberpunk 2077 per se. I don't game at all on my editing PC.

 

That said, some games do install third-party runtimes that are absolutely required for the games to run properly, but interfere severely with the operation of an NLE. If you try to optimize the system to run video editing programs properly, the games would then fail to run properly or at all.

 

This is why the installation of games and video editing programs in the same PC is not recommended.
