I'm trying to wrap me head around the differences between the; NVIDIA Quadro 4000 (Mac) & NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 (Mac)
The 4000 offers 256 cores, while the 4800 offers 192 cores. The 4000 is significantly less ($780 USD vs $1450 - amazon.com).
The 4000 is compute capable 2.0, the 4800 is compute capable 1.3.
(the parallel toolbox requires 1.3 or greater last I checked).
Both support OpenGL
Is the main difference (besides the # of cores) the compute capability then? Is the compute capability tied to the card, or the driver (chicken or the egg, I know)?
But the main question is; what is the advantage of spending almost twice the cost for the 4800?? (Especially when the 4000 offers 64 more cores!)
Both usable on 64bit osx/matlab?
Any help would be, well, a lot of help!
