Little Champ

Jesse C., Newegg
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Have used this extensively on numerous builds for various AutoCAD users. It gets the job done. If you are needing to work with anything animated or very complicated, I'd dig deeper into your budget and go for a V4900 or a V7900.
  • Pros: Fast, capable, affordable, great drivers
  • Cons: Overpriced hardware when you dig out the specs

Customer Service NIGHTMARE

Chris M., Newegg
24 June 2013
  • Summary: -This is a "renering" GPU and not a "playback" GPU (like gaming video cards) however this little humper has AWESOME playback due to the DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.2, Unified Shader Architecture, Full Shader Model 5.0, and most importantly Hardware acceleration of DirectX 11 & OpenGL 4.2. Seriously folks it renders WONDERfully AND plays top notch video games AS WELL!
  • Pros: -Comparing to a Galaxy nVidia GT 430 (that it replaced), this card cut render times from 15 minutes to 1.5 minutes! -Plays modern video games with ease (see other thoughts)
  • Cons: -The fan is small but does the job. However in a warmer environment like mine (Las Vegas) that little fan works pretty well However 3 months ago I had to RMA this GPU to AMD because the fan seemed to be stuck on high all the time even when using MSI Afterburner to control fan speed. Couldn't control it any longer. I had been expected to ship the defective product to Canada; the only receiving center for AMD's defects. $74 via UPS, $68 via DHL, FedEx $72, and $40 via U...

Excellent cost effective graphics card

CAD S., Newegg
31 January 2013
  • Pros: Cheap, and does the job. This size is very small and will fit in any computer. The older graphics cards are typically very large. I use autocad and it works great. I cant even hear the fan its so quiet. There are far more high-powered graphics card available but it all depends on what you do. If its 3D stuff this card is fine.
  • Cons: Nothing.

Great performance, horribly loud

Peter B., Newegg
8 November 2012
  • Summary: - Loudness is remedied by changing the fan, but still a hassle. I used this fan: Titan TTC-CUV3AB(DIY) VGA Cooling Fan Item #: N82E16835192006 Works great, but you need to drill a hole in mounting braket so be warned.
  • Pros: Great performance.
  • Cons: - Loud, really loud. Inexcusable for any component these days. - Only win7 drivers for SolidWorks, so xp ppl are out of luck.

Does what I need

Jeffrey S., Newegg
2 September 2012

  • Pros: It works well with Autocad & Solidworks
  • Cons: None so far

Highly reccomended over others

Jason D., Newegg
26 July 2012
  • Pros: This Card is equivalent to the Radeon HD 6570, but it's 100mhz faster memory wise and it does things like huge multitasking faster than the 6570, but if you are doing small work the 6570 will be better then the FirePro V3900. Also, the reason I love this card was because of the OpenGL 4.2 support, which only 3 cards on this website has OpenGL 4.2 support , so if you are creating games, and can't get the V7900, then this card is for you.
  • Cons: It's good for multitasking and loading huge models, but not rendering, other cards will beat it at rendering.
