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.

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....

I replaced the standard AMD (or whatever it was) graphics card with this to use with Adobe. It is AWESOME. Editing time has been cut in half, probably even more. I don't have to render nearly as often, and when I do, it's much quicker. I replaced it myself, which took about 15 minutes after I built up the nerve to do it. Turns out there was no reason to worry. Just make sure you aren't static (just touch anything metal first) or you could hurt your computer!

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.

Works as advertised. I needed it for use of DaVinci Resolve software, a professional color correction program that relies on the off CPU image processing this card provides.

But be warned...NVIDIA has still not created a LION driver for mac users that will work for this card, so to use it you must be running Snow Leopard. I just threw another hard drive in my Mac Pro and created a different "world'" to boot into that featured the obsolete OS to make NVIDIA happy! But, that's an advanced extreme move that some may not be able/have luck with/ have patience ....to do.

I have installed three of these cards in the last few months, and all worked fine on inital boots. No problems so far. (Longest service for cards in my care thus far is six months.)

It is not the sole province of NVIDIA to undersupport high end, low production run products. But in this case, I am a bit annoyed with them and so I must temper my reccomendation accordingly.
