Default Re: 8800GTX vs Quadro FX 4500 performance on large models

Softmodding my 6800GT makes a nice difference in Maya 8.
The main difference Ive noticed is that when selecting a model, it freezes for a second or so before it brings up the highlighted wireframe on smooth shaded surface, this doesnt happen with the softmod running the card as a Quadro.
I assume this is cause the Geforce drivers arent really supposed to do any wireframe rendering or viewport rendering, while the Quadros are targeting this sort of stuff.

I missed out the chance to try a softmod on the 8800 series as I was reviewing them since the Quadro versions arent out yet.
Looking forward to some tests when the softmod shows up, if anyone is up for it.
