Powerful

Charles E., Newegg
15 October 2010
  • Summary: This was a headache to set up. I have never used an ATI product and this will probably be my last if I don't find it any more better than the Quadro 4000.
  • Pros: This thing can crunch numbers and make opengl programs beg for mercy. Great for entertainment setups that use massive resolutions.
  • Cons: 1. Updated drivers caused computer to crash during monitor configuration. 2. Configuration is 10 times harder than nvidia's quadro. 3. Little to none stereoscopic support. 4. No support for stereoscopic LCD monitors with 120hz. 5. Stereoscopic port is worthless unless you have a DLP screen. 6. Ex...

More power than the Apollo Program

Frank F., Newegg
25 July 2010
  • Summary: Does anyone know where the 3-pin DIN standard "Stereo 3D Connector" connects to? Could not figure that one out.
  • Pros: This monster has got more computing power than the entire Apollo Program ever had. If you must run four 30-inch 4.1MP monitors simultaneously, this is the card for it.
  • Cons: Max. energy consumption at 208 Watts sounds a tad excessive. Having 4 x DisplayPorts is of no great benefit if you want to connect projectors to this thing, since even pricey DCI-Class projectors use only SDI and DVI ports, and the less expensive ones use DVI, HDMI, and VGA. This card hasn't got ...

Mike D., Newegg
18 June 2010
  • Summary: Have an old GTX 260 and wanted to try new high end workstation card. what i was thinking? going to ATI. Never again ATI. I'll stick to something that works. All www reviews got me to try v8800, well it did not work for me......back to SQ1. I am neigher NV or ATI fan.
  • Pros: minus-0-none. My old OC'd gtx260 outperformed this card in every aspect in CAD 3D (SolidWorks and Solidedge) even this one was in lower res : 1920x1200 comparing to 2560x1600 old card.
  • Cons: Could not get 2560x1600 resolution to display in catalyst control center at all for gateway XHD3000 put back an old GTX260 and all was OK with 2560x1600 Called support: you need to use dual-link displayport to DVI adapter. I do have it!!! support, level 2, was 0 next to nothing. waited 30min-45mi...

Welcome to the new era in GPUs

Anonymous, Newegg
23 April 2010
  • Summary: With all workstation applications and render agents moving towards the use solely of the GPU, this thing is ahead of the pack in every way. Based on the proven CyprusXT core, this workstation card boasts the most powerful engine currently on the planet.
  • Pros: 1600 Stream Processing Units 2GB VRAM on a 512 bit Ring-Bus (this particular one says 256 bit interface, which is contrary to AMD's specs; though it should be noted that AMD is well known for releasing several versions of the same piece of hardware) DirectX 11 OpenGL 3.2 OpenCL 1.0 Outperforms cu...
  • Cons: $1360 price tag? A little out of my price range at the moment...but only for the moment.
