AC23 - Quadro 4000 and Twinmotion

Here is my system:
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 8-Core Processor 3.8 GHz with 32.0 GB
Windows 10 64-bit Op. Sys, x64 based processor
NVIDIA Quadro 4000

Using Twinmotion with a very simple model resulted in catastrofic crashes where I had no reponse from the keyboard, from the mouse and black displays.
I had to turn off the power manually and recover the .PLN
Consulting with NVIDIA revealed that they discontinued support for the Quadro 4000
Further research suggests using RTX 2070 or higher gaming cards if Twinmotion will work properly.

Before emptying my wallet for any perceived advantage in using Twinmotion I would like to hear some other users experience while using AC and Twinmotion and their hardware recommendations.

Thanks and be safe and remain healty.

We've noticed poor quality as well with older Quadro hardware.

However, CPU driven renderers such as the built in Cinerender work fine on our older workstation hardware and benefit a lot from the multicore Xeon processors. I would imagine it is the same for your AMD Ryzen CPU.

I have a feeling (so not based on hard facts!) that using Twinmotion going forward, you'll have more hardware upgrades that are needed, to keep using it optimally over the years. So besides the future investment of Twinmotion (it will not be free forever to use the latest version), that is another thing to consider.

Unless you are banking on real time ray tracing within the programs you are using, I do not see any advantages in getting a 20 series card over a 10 series.
