Not for gaming purposes, but as a workstation so they will all be 60 MHZ - 75 MHZ at most. Would like something with 3 DP's.

What apps will you be taxing the GPU/system with, what is your budget and where are you located(preferred site for purchase)? You might also want to state the make and models of the monitors since connectivity will also be a part to consider.

Charting software- esignal - 14-18 charts at a time with drawings
10-12 tabs on google chrome providing data
Another software for algorithm tracing

It's screen real estate that won't be used for anything like AUTO CAD or 3d mapping, but will be used for charts and live data.

In Texas , microcenter and best buy seem to have most all, but fine ordering online.

Budget is 3 figures, closer to $400/500 than $1000, but really want the best long term solution.

On the spec sheets for these graphics cards when they say max resolution, is that for 1 monitor or across all the monitors? I have seen one of the AMD Radeon Pro spec sheets say they can handle 2 5k monitors or 4 4k monitors at 60 Hz (https://www.amd.com/system/files/documents/radeon-pro-wx5100-datasheet.pdf)
 
I think you want a graphics card with three displayport outputs.
DP is generally required to display 4k @ 60hz.
HDMI will do 4k, but likely at 30hz which you will notice.
It does not require a high powered gaming monitor.
I run a similar 4k lg monitor via an old GTX750ti @60hz.

I think there are some RX570 units with 3 dp outputs
Here is a nvidia GTX1650 super with three:

I imagine that there are others.
You would also have the option to run two graphics cards if that makes sense

So I'm going with a workstation card over gaming , as it fits my needs better. The 2 options are

1. Amd Radeon Pro WX 5100
https://www.amd.com/system/files/documents/radeon-pro-wx5100-datasheet.pdf


2. NVIDIA Quadro P2200

The Radeon has more memory... but considering I already have 64 GB RAM... is the Quaddro a better choice in terms of driving 3-4 4k monitors?

For whatever reason the Quadro can drive 4 5k monitors while the Radeon can only drive 2 5k monitors... not that I'm using 5k just curious why...

Anyone able to tell the spec difference between these two? Is NVIDIA just a better choice in general than AMD?

For your use-case, a workstation graphics card will have no benefits over a gaming card.

I mean, they are both workstation graphics cards and I will be using them on 60 Hz refresh monitors.... I wouldn't need a gaming card.
My statement was trying to say that paying MORE for a "workstation" graphics card is not going to improve your performance over a "gaming" grapics card. You can usually get more hardware for the same $$$ with a gaming graphics card compared to a workstation card.

Oh, I didn't know that. The gaming ones looked a lot more expensive and seemed optimized for higher refresh rates, so I prefer the bandwidth for the amount of multitasking and charts necessary.
