Maybe my version is faulty, but the image quality is dreadful, no-where near as good ad the original HD output that my motherboard produces.This is more like a crappy old VGA signal from days of yore, when the first flat panel monitors first made an appearance.I've installed the correct drivers, uninstalled them, re-installed them, to no avail. In fact, it makes no difference whether the drivers are installed or not, it still looks dreadful.It's unusable for anything serious like photo or video editing, and is only just about good enough for writing in Word and using a web browser.Not what I'd expect from a so-called Pro card.
Does everything you'd expect it to do. I've ran some of the sample stuff on Unreal engine, like the kite Demo (which most GPU's can't handle), which is chock a block with 4k textures and hi poly models (5000 polly tree, they must be mad!), it takes a while, but it does it. It rendered the shooter Demo nicely, only taking about half an hour to build the level (working with a xeon 5620, if you think that matters). Then there's what I call the Radeon look, it makes things look more realistic, not glossy and flashy like Nvidia.It's lightning fast for my own CGI projects. You can see it has a huge color space, even on a crap monitor. It played Crysis 1, so smoothly I actually got into the game and started to really enjoy it, toggling through the abilities almost like on the sample videos.So it's fit for purpose, everything an entry level graphics card should be.
I purchased the HP graphic workstation from Amazon, which runs a Microsoft Windows operating system. All the graphics and photography work comes from my Linux server drives. The HP graphic workstation needed a graphic card, so I purchased the "Radeon Rro WX3100" on Amazon. The Radeon Rro WX3100, is the equivalent to an old VGA graphic card. I almost threw a temper tantrum because of the poor performance mixed with the humid weather. I almost exploded attempting to use blender. Blender is a 3D computer graphics software toolset and Radeon Rro WX3100, was not up to the job. I am more angry with myself than anything else because I should do my research! I think I should know better.. The supply was great very fast delivery I will use the card for another computer that is less demanding.

I have a DELL Precision T5510 at work which I use for photo editing and CAD work. I've been using 2x BenQ 27" monitors (1560x1440 resolution) but recently upgraded them both to 4k monitors running at 3840 x 2160 but this presented me with some issues. Firstly my existing GPU couldn't drive more than one 4k monitor and even then it could only do it at 30hz not 60hz, secondly, Windows 7 didn't play nicely with just one 4k monitor and one non-4k monitor. It seems Windows 7, unlike Windows 10, doesn't allow you to have different DPI scaling across two monitors. The only way to solve this is to have to 4k monitors at the same 150% scaling.So I bought the WX4100 4GB GPU to replace my NVS310 and it works a treat. Initially I thought I'd bought the wrong one as it had a half height port panel on the end but then I realised a full height metal blank was included in the box and I just had to unscrew the half height one and replace it with the full height one.No extra power supply is needed for the GPU but you need to make sure you've got a 16x PCI port if you want max speed.It powers 2x BenQ BL2711U monitors at 4k 60hz with no problem.
With graphic card prices sky rocketing due to mining, would a still rather highly-priced "old" professional graphics card make any sense at this point in time? Miners, this card is not for you. Please look elsewhere and inflate the prices of other cards!I would say a rather resounding "YES!" with a few caveats that this card still do make sense to some.... please read on.This old AMD Radeon Pro WX7100 is currently a direct competition to the newer Nvidia Quadro P4000. They are both single slot professional cards that are currently (mid March 2018) the fastest offered by each competing manufacturer.Two myths I have gladly debunked.1. Professional graphic cards are not good for gaming. Nonsense! The WX7100 absolutely rocks for casual gamers for classics like Starwars Battlefield at ultra settings etc. on default professional drivers. AMD also made it easy to switch to gaming drivers easily! You do have to manage your expectations as it is not a Vega 64 or Titan X class monster. But comparing this to a GTX960 which it replaced, I am rather impressed with the decent frame rates.2. Professional graphic cards have the same display quality as gaming cards. There is a noticable difference! This is where this card really shines. There are various customisations for the perfect display on whatever the monitor or TV screen you hook the card to. I use this with a Samsung TV with a HDMI to DP adaptor and the display quality is outstanding after tweaking. Movies played with VLC looked so much better with blacks showing more dynamic range. Text are very much easier to read too!A few things I like about the WX7100.1. Modest power consumption. It uses just a 6-way PCie power supply plug from my HP Z620 workstation with no stress added to the PSU.2. Single PCie slot. It is very refreshing to replace a space-hogging double slot graphics card with the WX7100 on a real-estate contrained workstation and yet, you do not compromise on performance.3. It's about the software. AMD creates the drivers that are certified and stable for any use. I absolutely love the additional configurability not available on consumer cards that allow tweaking of the display for better suitability for any useage.There is only one thing I am irritated about the WX7100. The single cooling fan on the card spins very loud when rendering in Blender or when playing games. The noise is noticable coming from within a rather quiet workstation. I guess this is the compromise for choosing a smaller, single slot card in a fully packed chasis.On paper, the P4000 may be faster in every way and if you require CUDA for your professional needs, AMD cannot be your consideration. But for OpenGL, the WX7100 is very well equipt to satisfy.With the P4000 currently costing upwards of 50% more than the WX7100, there is yet an additional value proposition when AMD directly provides you with a free 7-year warranty on top of the original 3-year AMD warranty.If you only play games, you don't need to pay through your nose with a professional graphics card. You will be most happy with the best consumer gaming card within your budget. However, if you use Blender (or any OpenGL apps), love to watch movies with HDR, game occasionally and love a stable and reliable VR-ready display card with a 10-year warranty to boot, this may be the perfect solution for you!In the near future, I will find the opportunity to test this card out with Windows AR and other VR solutions. Now, where can I get hold of a new VR headset from Samsung (Odessey) or the new Vive Pro?....
