Hi all. I am completely new to Unreal, but have been involved with 3D modelling (architecture) and rendering for many (many!) years.
I have recently had a new workstation which is great for rendering in VRay as it has dual Xeon CPUs, each with 12/24 cores. It flies! However, the graphics card is a ‘workstation-class’ graphics card which is fine for AutoCAD and 3DSmax (though not necessarily the best for Max, it has to be said). The card is a Quadro 4000. For Unreal, this card is pretty hopeless, so I am thinking about my options.
Ideally, for warranty and Dell support reasons, I would like to keep my Quadro 4000 card in the machine, but also add in an extra card, something like the Nvidia GTX 780 Ti, for use in Unreal (and for VRay RT). Is it possible to have two completely different cards in a Windows 7 machine and instruct which card should be used for which application?
For example, I want AutoCAD to use the Quadro 4000, but I’d like Unreal to use the GTX780Ti.
Anyone had any experience in this? Dell support are hopeless!
