Great worksation card for the money

N. Berg, Amazon

  • Summary: I am the IT manager for a landscape architecture firm and I have purchased 3 of these cards for 3 different workstations. All of them use Auto CAD 2014 and this card has no problem handling even the most intense 3D drawings and renderings. The drivers are not quite as good as Nvidia but the actual performance for the price is way better then any of Nvidia's offerings.

Excellent!

Greg Dechow, Amazon

  • Summary: Great product for the cost. ATI needs to improve drivers for it, however. GPU acceleration in Photoshop is incredibly buggy. I have to turn down the GPU settings to the most basic level to avoid issues. A pro card like this should be able to run the highest settings in Photoshop without any issues.

problematic at best

  • Summary: bought this to use in solidworks, it was well reviewed and seemed to compare to the Nvidia Quadro 4000 but at half the price. I usually stick with Nvidia because I have never had an issue with one of their cards. this AMD card was dismal. my gaming GTX470 did better in Solidworks than this "workstation" card did. I had the latest dirvers for ir recommended by solidworks and it still performed worse than the gaming card.

Amazing rendering capability

MIke, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this graphics card to set the standard for my custom computer. I use it for REVIT and Rhino. The quality left me speechless after my first use. Where has this card been all my life? SO happy to use this with projects. Fast. The biggest issue I have with it is I had to use Windows 7. The computer I had with it originally had windows 8 and would not even turn on. It requires a more powerful power cord. Mine is 700 watt.

Unhappy with a number of things

ZinkDude "Zink", Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: I run mostly nVidia cards. I thought I would check out this AMD card for a change. I bought (2) of them to power 6 monitors. Firstly, the AMD driver software really does not stack well compared to nVidia. AMD does not give you a good rundown of the various driver options. They have different versions of the software listed all over the place. Secondly, The Dongle that came with this card was cheaply made. It came loose and the connector is not on tight.

Great Workstation Video Card

Dr Jones, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: *** Updated **** Card failed after 4 months!!... Experienced a failure in display port 1, then signal degradation from the DVI port. My mouse started to experience extreme lag and failure to move about a day before the failure. However, AMD support has been fantastic so far, as you receive specialized service because its a GL line card. *** I primarily run ArcGIS and ArcScene 3D for mapping. I use a little CAD, Maya, Revit, and 3DS max.
