Hey. I have a question about the performance of my Hardware.
I understand that if I buy the latest video card (10000 $), then I get a better result.
My Hardware: Quadro FX 5800, Intel Xeon E5504 2.00 GHz (2 processors), 8 gb memory.
What can you advise best to choose or change?
All thanks in advance!

I tested a lot of hardware and in my opinion the pro grafix boards did no good job at all. I testet a new quadro against new geforce and the geforce had more performance. It seems to me that Lumion is more like a game engine then caad, so gamer hardware works best. I use a gefore gtx 680 now and render 1920x1080, best performance in under 4 sec. a picture. I hope they will indroduce dual gpu rendering soon, then I switch to gtx 690. Perhaps they could dual gpu rendering for 3d, each stream on one core and produce 2 files _l, _r.

Hi Vadim_Zelenov, Thomas is right.

There's some more advice here:

Thank you for your answers.
As I understand it, even GF 690, better than my quad 5800?
I can use the GF 690 in SLI mode? and productivity will increase significantly?

At the moment, Lumion does not benefit from SLI/dual-/quad-core GPUs, so the best solution is the fastest single-GPU card you can get. Currently this is the Nvidia GTX 680.

Morten, have you tried the GTX 680 with Lumion yet? It would be nice to learn how much faster it is over the 580. The 680 with 4GB memory seems it would be a fantastic bit of hardware for Lumion.

No, I think ilwedritschel is the only GTX 680 owner at the moment :)
Here are the results of his GTX 570 vs 680 tests:
