I'm trying to decide on a graphics card for my new build which will have a 6700k and 32gb of RAM.

I know that the W7100 is double the price, but I think I want the 8gb of DDR5 over the lower priced W5100.

I will use the rig for equal amounts of CAD, gaming, and video/photo editing. The computer will always be running 4 1080p monitors. I run both windows and linux and hope to experiment with Xen Virtualization to run both OS at once.

pretty sure you need 2 gpus and a mobo+cpu that support pci pass through for this to work, 2x 390 would be a good choice. firepro is needlessly expensive unless you have money to burn

NVidia puts code in their graphics driver that specifically blocks you from using Xen, whereas AMD does not. Go back to /v/.

I'm sure you're capable of researching further, but I know from personal experience that all GeForce cards and some Quadros are blocked when trying to use VGA pass through.

This is a pretty well known fact, and mentioned in EVERY SINGLE TUTORIAL for pass through around the internet.

Lesser known details: nvidia gpus are capable of 4-6 display heads per card (since 6xx) but windows is only capable of 3, thus nvidia blocks it on Linux unless you buy quadro. AMD does no such thing, my apu can drive 6 displays if I could find enough ports for it.

Nvidia cards are capable of quadro performance like for instance async shaders, but they disable it in software to upsell quadro. Further, they make hardware tweaks to keep you from flashing quadro firmware to enable it.

I'm okay with companies making their own business decisions. I'll evaluate those decisions as a consumer and if I don't like it I simply won't buy it.

Go kill yourself you fucking faggot.

That's fine, and its their prerogative. It's also my prerogative to inform every person I can about their anti-consumer tactics.
