      The GTX cards have never been on the list of tested graphics cards, they work well for Gamers. However, many people run ANSYS with these cards.


      The Quadro cards are the ones ANSYS gets tested with, here is the list for 17.0

      Hi Ahmed Ali ,


      To add to what Peter has mentioned, you can refer to this link


      https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Nvidia-Quadro-and-Geforce-How-each-of-them-perform-on-CAD-and-Gaming


      for more technical details why Quadro is suitable for CAD/CAE software like ANSYS and Geforce is mostly used for gaming.


      Thank you,


      Win

      Hi Ahmed Ali ,


      It's not tested, so it's hard to say if it'd work, it could go either way. I have seen people who are lucky and people who aren't as lucky.


      Thank you,


      Win

      Best bet will be to download, install as Admin & see what happens. We (as staff) can only refer you to the supported platforms & hardware list: we know several users who aren't using those cards but have successfully used the software.

      Is the issue that you have not purchased this computer and graphics card yet, so you want to know before you purchase if it will work?


      No one can guarantee that it will work. If you want a guarantee, then purchase a Quadro card. You say you can't install that, so you have to take the risk on the GTX card and hope for the best. There is a good chance that ANSYS will run on the GTX card, but there is no guarantee.

      i ran it under geforce GT 630 and GTX 1070.. ANSYS AIM can run with both cards, but GT 630 runs the animation results a bit choppily and the result from GTX 1070 is much smoother with faster solver time.. Sometimes, with GT 630, there were problems with the animation result of field flow velocity, where they didn't get updated even after clicking the update result button, but i haven't got such problem with GTX 1070..
