worked for 2+ years but no longer on approved hardware lists

MattkPSU "Matt", Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: I had the mobility version of the card, but to my knowledge, they have the same specs. I use this card for Solidworks 2012, AutoCAD and Inventor 2013. I cannot run autocad 2013 because the V5700 is no longer supported. It gives error messages every time you 3D rotate. Revit will not run on this card, period. Mudbox gave me errors. AutoCAD 2012 ran too slow. This card served its purpose for 2+ years in my CAD workstation.

Not what I'd hoped for in this case.

  • Summary: I was getting this for my wife so she could get work done for school using Maya. I discovered this card is NOT on the list of certified let alone recommended hardware. For someone else's use, or with older versions of Autodesk software, this may not be a bad card at all. NOTE: I didn't use the card as I promptly returned it, unopened, (successfully) because the newest versions of Maya had problems with it, according to other sources.

  • Summary: This may not be the latest greatest graphics card on the market, however, with the linux boxes I run I get superb rendering with these cards. Glad I made the purchase!

Works Great, no Minecraft OpenGL support

P. Peterson, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: This video card was a great dual displayport card, and exactly what I was looking for to drive 2 monitors both with displayport. It works mostly as stated, HOWEVER... it does not support OpenGL at least it does not support the OpenGl required to play Minecraft on. I tried all available drivers for this, the machine is running Windows 7 32bit.

Both CAD Approved and Blu-Ray ready

E. Estrada "Single Dad of 4", Amazon
1 May 2011
  • Summary: I do CAD at home for my work and needed a better video card. I also purchased a new blu-ray drive a while back to find out that old video card could not decode blu-ray. So, looked up which video cards were "approved" for blu-ray and looked up "approved" video cards for solidworks. This card does both and more cost effective than some of the "approved" video cards for CAD. I found the V5700 for $299.99 with a $25 gift card through another on-line store.
