Good card; beware KVM issues with ATI drivers

Dave Goody "DH", Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: It's a decent card. I like the fanless design. It will be fine for trading. First suggestion; read through the reviews here. Ybeard and others have really explored the depths of this card's connectivity, which is why I decided on this card. In my case, I am connecting to four Dell 2408WFP monitors via mini display port to DVI, with the exception of one, which is going through an IOGear MultiView Ultra+ GCS1758 switch sa VGA.

Attractive But 2 Cheap Video Cards x 2 also = 4

Bob Blum, Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: Hi Folks, This is a non-review of the ATI FirePro. I just bought a new Win7 tower (Intel Core i7). I've used 2-3 monitors (now 4) for >20 years as a stock trader and academic. I strongly considered the ATI FirePro, but decided to go with two cheap video cards from ASUS. Each card drives two monitors: 2 X 2 = 4. Look at my extensive Amazon reviews of the ASUS Silent 210 and the ASUS GT520.

It works, even Linux, but the drivers for Linux are weak

Stu Thompson, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: While this card supports Linux, the ATI Catalyst drivers for LInux are weak. Why do I say that? 1) must reboot between almost any change in configuration, 2) must turn off the "one desk" top feature to rearrange displays (require a reboot), 3) only worked under Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome--Mint LInux with Xfce and Gnome + Ubuntu 11 with Gnome did not work. The reboots are irritating and time consuming. Reminds me of the Windows 95 era. At the end of the day, it works.

Best Value Trading Computer Graphics Card

Greg Williamsky, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • Summary: I consider this to be the best value graphics card on the market for trading computer setup.This card supports a multi-monitor functionality.DVI to mDP passive adapters included.AMD has told me you do not need more expensive active adapters as long as the monitors are identical. Delivery was super fast to Qld,Australia in under 7 days.I purchased 2 x cards for 8 x monitor support.Would highly recommend to anyone requiring multi-monitor setup.

The only game in town for multiple large monitors

Wolfgang Rupprecht, Amazon
16 March 2012
  • Summary: If you need to drive multiple 2560 x 1440 (or 1600) monitors you either need a dual dual-link DVI card or (at least) dual displayport. You don't have many choices to start off with and if you want a quiet passively cooled card, this one is pretty much the only game in town. This card works with xorg in linux, but xorg is still a little rough around the edges when it comes to supporting displayport.

Great card for multiple displays

John, Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this card so I could run 3-4 monitors in an extended desktop setup (non-gaming), with each one working independently from the other. I have windows 7 64 bit and dealing with windows and graphics cards, I was expecting the setup to be difficult and time consuming with the requisite calls to the manufacturer for tech support. I can say though that installing the card and software worked right out the box.

Great card for multiple monitors BUT you must buy 2 adapters

Eric Bottomley, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: We use two of these cards in an HP Z400 workstation and it will suport 8 monitors. This is for business applications, not for gaming. There is definantly one issue here though. For me at least, to get 4 monitors up and running, you must buy some additional adapters. There must be 2 of the adapters used that have a chip in them. I read somewhere that this is a multi monitor\ATI thing. The easiest way is to buy 2 VGA adaptors and use 2 adapters that come with it.

Great product (includes 4 mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters!!)

Amazon
20 October 2011
  • Summary: Great product. Just installed it into a small form factor Dell Optiplex 780. It worked perfectly right out of the box, and it is now powering four older Dell monitors. It's a great value because it includes four mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters which allows you to easily connect with DVI to any older monitors (non-DisplayPort) that you want to include in your multi-monitor setup. The ATI drivers are easy and offer many, many configuration options. Great deal. Love it!

Great Product, Buy it. But consider the following ...

ybeard, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product. I'm a financial advisor and love the multi-screen functionality. It's also cheaper and uses less than half the power of it's competitor, Nvidia's NVS 450. Bear in mind the following footnote posted on AMD's website about this product: *Important: When using mini DisplayPort-to-singlelink DVI adapters, quad output is divided into two pairs (displays 1 and 2 and displays 3 and 4).
