    Hi all,

    I’m setting up a new rig for productivity not gaming and I am going to be running two 4K displays.

    Which nVidia GPU can drive two 4K screens without issue?

    Thanks

    Define productivity? @Gareth Halfacree can be productive with just a Commodore64 and a CRT.

    Quadro P400, will do up to 3x 4k screen and will do it without issue.

    EDIT:

    If you don't mind mixing and matching between HDMI and DP, you should get away with a GTX1050, or maybe even some flavours of GT1030.

    If you decide on the red corner then you're looking at the Radeon Pro WX2100 or an RX550 with the same caveats as the GTX1050

    Thanks for the reply everyone, bitcoin mining has overly inflated the price of these aging cards so much!

    Not so much... it's mostly the short supply of DRAM/VRAM causing major issues.
