Hi, I'm Italian so sorry but my English will be a bit wrong.
Now, I need advice on buying a graphics card, I mainly use programs like Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop... Yes, I use 3D as Autodesk platform (slightly)...
I definitely wanted to try to buy an Nvidia Quadro, because I've always read online and heard that they are made for rendering. Is this thing true? On Adobe Premiere I would have real improvement in the final export of the work and also in the work itself?
For example, I wanted to buy a refurbished Nvidia quadro m4000 (because I have a limited budget), Compared to the GeForce GTX 1060 3gb AMP that I have now, would I notice a difference?
Thanks, here's my configuration:
CPU AMD ryzen 9 3900x
Mobo Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite
Psu Corsair CX650M
GPU GeForce GTX 1060 3gb AMP
RAM 16gb Hyper Fury 3200MHz
SSD m.2 Samsung 970 evo plus

Thanks I hope you can help me.

Consumer-focused GPUs have higher performance / dollar in rendering workloads than quadros. Quadros are meant for people that can make use of the large VRAM or need specific features in CAD (not 3D-DCC!) Apps that are only available on quadros. For most any 3D DCC App a mainstream (gaming) GPU will be the better choice for you.

Hello, In the end I bought a refurbished RTX a2000 (350€), it seems to do its job very well, and moreover it has 12gb of VRAM, so it has greatly increased rendering and export performance. Another tip I ask: how much RAM should be? Is there a relationship between RAM, CPU and GPU? Thank you.

I'd say 16GB should be the absolute minimum for your kinds of workloads. If you think you'll have multiple projects and applications opened at the same time, go with 32GB.
