No.

Is there a quadro on the way with the new 3090 architecture?

It can be assumed yes.

Should I just get the 3090 because it'll be years before a new quadro comes out?

Wait for real benchmarks to come out, particularly for Solidworks.

 

That being said, I've never needed that much GPU horsepower for solidworks, even in simulations and rendering. I run a GTX 780.

 

If you're doing this for work, you'll want to wait for Solidworks to greenlight the GPU too, so there's extra waiting involved there, and that's the true reason to buy a Quadro over a mainstream GeForce.

 

tl;dr: Get the RTX5000 and move on with your modelling

Was going to get a P5000,

then held off for the RTX5000,

then held off again because of new CPUs,

then held off once more because of rumours around new GPU architecture and PCIe4.0.

 

Based on the 2x 2080ti vs RTX8000 video it would be reasonable to assume that a single 3090 was roughly the same performance as a current RTX8000 but for about a 1/3 of the price.

 

I do alot of heavy Solidworks modelling but not enough simulation to warrant ECC or anything above the 5000. When comparing the hardware specs between the 3090 and 5000 it looks pretty clear that the 3090 will wipe the floor with the 5000 with all things CAD related as well as gaming.
