    Titan Ultra inbound then.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    "The NVIDIA Quadro K6000 GPU is the highest priced, most unaffordable GPU ever created for the professional graphics market," said Ed Chigliak, senior vice president at some small 3D content creation business in the UK.

    "It could significantly increase financial stress for many freelance animators, digital designers and engineers, enabling them to make a lower income overall on account of the high cost of ownership quite disproportionate to the real world benefits. Fortunately directX found its way into many CAD packages and you can be similarly productive in most situations at 1/10th the cost with a gaming GPU. You might also like to avoid the price hike surrounding any PC branded as a workstation unless somebody else is paying the bill or you value the warranty."

    Test hardware configurations for the workloads you have before throwing money down the drain based on marketing BS. Having Quatro and Firepro product is no guarantee that the system will perform better because when you get into the realms of affordability they can be weak by comparison to a similarly priced gaming GPU.

    I dislike Quadro marketing as it seems to be largely promoting FUD.

    Don't buy it then, Ed.

    I've not seen any of the marketing, but I think you're right in that if you can afford to certify hardware configurations for your workload then you might be able to get away with cheaper components. The point of workstation level components as far as I'm concerned is when you can't afford to do your own validation to the same extent - you need a part that is reliable and stable enough for your workflow especially if it's mission critical. At the end of the day only you can decide where you (or your clients) want to lie on the risk/cost slope, and workstation products exist for a particular market. Other products exist for other markets, and we have the freedom to make our own choices.

    "scheduled to show up in laptops in autumn."

    what's the point? bound to be 1366 x 768 screens. They always are!

    I highly doubt you're going to find a K6000 in a £300 laptop down in Curry's/PC World.
