Which GPU to choose

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am planning to buy new PC and mostly sure about the configuration. But confused about which graphics card to choose.

Following are the constraints.

1. Needs to have stable Linux drivers. I will mostly use Ubuntu 14

2. Needs to run with Houdini. Houdini 15 requires an OpenGL 3 compliant graphics card and a driver that provides OpenGL 3.3 support. 2GB VRAM or more is recommended.

3. Budget is under 20K Indian Rupees.

 

There are 3 choices in front of me.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 960

AMD FirePro V4900 1GB

AMD FirePro W4100 2GB

Which one of these is stable with Linux and Houdini ?

AMD's drivers are somewhat troublesome on Linux, from what I've heard. Nvidia's Linux drivers are just as good as their Windows drivers.

 

I'd choose the NV 960.

ATI/AMD's for me historically has been nothing more than a wet fart driver wise, especially with linux.
