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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: slow and clucky poor performance when using Maya shaded view and it don't come with drivers and there is a lot of time I don't have access to the net or phone so no drivers is a bad thing but I did download drivers from the net this time
Fantastic card, especially if your business makes YouTube videos

Summary: I bought this card a year ago when I upgraded my CAD workstation and the previous GPU I had refused to work on the newer hardware. The previous card was a Quadro FX3800 and I didn't really notice huge improvements in my day-to-day workflows. This week, I moved the W5000 to my Ops Manager's computer.
