I've assembled a workstation for a user of this visualization software, but i don't have a clue what type of acceleration would benefit this program. CUDA, OpenCL? Would there be a difference between GeForce and Quadro of the same specs? Would Radeon WX 7100 be better than Radeon RX 580?

If you know someone who uses this software, please ask them about it.

This does not tell me anything useful.

For example Blender requirements state "Dual OpenGL 3.2 compatible graphics cards with 4 GB RAM'', BUT IN FACT, and i have tested it myself, R9 390X destroys GTX1080 in Blender rendering scenes, meaning OpenCL is the way to use, not CUDA, even though the statement is otherwise. In fact, CUDA acceleration is the worst thing to have, since a multi core CPU destroys R9 390X too.

Sheep demo render time:

GTX 1080: 200+ minutes
R9 390X: 45 minutes
Xeon E5-2680 V4: 14 minutes.

the software did not seem to mention Cuda but did mention OpenGL so well there is that.
Invest in your customer by looking at the forum link I also added >> Visualization tips and techniques

I wrote them twice, first time did not get any answer though, now waiting for the second one... The user of that software said he asked once too and got a reply like ''experiment yourself to find the results''...
