Product Description

PNY Quadro 4000 2GB DDR5 DVI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card for Mac

From the Manufacturer


Mac OS X 10.6.7 Driver Update


Apple's Mac OS X 10.6.7 system update overwrites any existing Quadro 4000 for Mac or Quadro FX 4800 for Mac graphics driver, resulting in a loss of graphics acceleration functionality, and also disables CUDA (if installed). To restore full graphics acceleration and CUDA functionality to your Mac Pro system after installing the 10.6.7 update, you must download and install the latest Quadro for Mac driver and CUDA software.

The latest NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac driver is available at both of these locations:

I do a lot of 3D in Maya, Mudbox, and a bunch of other apps and reviewed this card when it was released under OS X 10.6. As others have pointed out, it was buggy and kernel panicked but OS X 10.7 fixed all the crashing issues and it's a rock now. The only drawback is the lack of OpenCL, which Apple (not Nvidia) is responsible for and they pulled it before Lion's release. Otherwise, performance is great (faster than Radeon 5870 for Maya and Mudbox from my benchmarks) and only uses one slot. Not as fast as the Radeon for games (in Parallels or Boot Camp) though. If you need CUDA or want a low-power card for 3D, it's easy to recommend now.

I've been working on an 8 core 2008 Mac Pro model mainly with After Effects. I had a 3min. long project that took 1 hour to render, after using the Quadro 4000 this time came down to 20 minutes when using Open GL. It feels like a new computer.

Price wise...it's below okay. I thought this would do some heavy damage in After Effects...nope! Premiere is working pretty decent with this card. I am not sure about 3D apps, because I did not test with my old 8800 to write down some numbers (so I can't compare). I was too excited to open and install this monster. But as far as doing work in Bootcamp, pretty darn good. The only thing was couple of nights ago, it made funny noises. I assume it was the fan. It was a very low noise, but a noise nonetheless. The day I installed it and I turned it on for 10 minutes, the card could boil a pan of breaded mushrooms within minutes. It truly runs hot. I have a pretty impressive tolerance with touching hot things but between 2 to 3 seconds, I had to lift my fingers. That makes me a bit concerned about my Mac tower, but I assume NVIDIA knows what they are doing. The one thing I didn't know about the Adobe Media Encoder was that you can take an After Effects project and render it with Media Encoder. Which I assume makes it faster to render, since it's using the GPU power. Very neat. I rendered a scene in Vue (3D app) and the scene took 11 hours straight to render. I was testing it for the heating issue, but the next morning I realized that the tower didn't melt, so I was relieved. I have not given it a go on the Mac side of things, so I will download a trial of CS5 and if any problems arise, I will list it here in a week.

They market this as a pro graphics card solution, but treat it differently. They are slow on support, if they give any. And why is the Mac version of the card inferior with only two display outputs, yet it costs more.

Nvidia should create a stronger card with 4 outputs at this price level. Even entry level graphics cards have three outputs.

BEFORE YOU BUY !!!!, know this.
This video card uses an external passive heat radiator that is the top of the video card.
In simple words.... it get Very Hot externally and to the touch.
This may not seem like a problem since (humorously) you will not be holding this in your hand.
However..... BEWARE!
This card WILL increase the internal temperature of your Mac Pro due to this passive heat radiation.
Again, this is Not a problem UNLESS..... you use the 16x PCI card slot directly above the video card.
This video card will destroy a PCI card located directly above it. (destroy meaning, will cause the PCI card to fail in less than half its original lifetime)
If you do not use extra PCI cards this video card will not cause a problem.

Performance????
Think again please.
I created a 2 image 3D file in Photoshop CS6 with some refraction, reflection and lights.
I then rendered this 3D file in full quality with a Radeon 5870 and the Quadro 4000.
Rendering is what the Quadro is designed to do best. (it is NOT FOR GAMERS)
The results are:
No significant improvements at all or whatsoever.
In fact, the Radeon was a few seconds faster and it is designed for gamers.

If you are using an old video card such as the GT-120 or Radeon 4870 and require a good "Workstation" video card AND do not use extra PCI cards and do not need a gaming video card, this is an excellent choice.

This video card has one extra feature that makes it desirable.
This video card will run under Snow Leopard with the proper Nvidia drivers and CUDA installed.
(drivers not required in Lion and above HOWEVER....

The rebate of $200 is erroneous, as it just lists information for the (as of this writing) $100 rebate twice. Amazon needs to fix this.

As far as the complaints about the drivers, PNY/Nvidia has released updated drivers for Mac OS X 10.6.7 and, as of today, 10.6.8 as well. Been running hot and heavy with both of them over the last couple of days in After effects and Modo, with no glitches or crashes that I can tell, and the new drivers also support OpenCL for Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5 and Compressor 4 support.

While Nvidia may have been a bit behind Apple with the drivers, they seem to have caught up for now.

Great performance for 3D design, video, OpenCL and games. Can't really complain, except the card seems a bit pricey, even with the rebate.
