Hardware Acceleration

Hello!

 

My notebook have integrated video card Intel GMA 4500 HD and I can't turn on hardware acceleration, that tip in menu is unavilable.

 

So, the situation is:

AutoCAD 2010 - acceleration is turned on and working,

AutoCAD 2011 Update 1 - working,

AutoCAD 2011 Update 1.1 - unavialable,

AutoCAD 2012 - unavialable.

 

Notebook and OS (Windows 7) are the same all the time. What's the problem?

It seems that I have to downgrade to 2011 up1.

>>>... notebook have integrated video card Intel GMA 4500 HD...<<<

Never a good or wise choice for most AutoCAD versions IMHO. If R2011 1.1 stopped supporting it, I sadly doubt there are plans to add it to R2012 or later versions.

It was good enough for 2D. Really.

 

IMHO It's not a good or wise idea to stop supporting this videocard.

Either AutoDesk or Intel MUST resolve this...

 

I have the 2011 13" Macbook Pro with Intel HD 3000 2nd gen i7. Can not turn on Hardware acceleration!!

 

This new integrated card by Intel runs Crysis 2 absolutely smooth... and it can't do hardware acceleration in CAD? This is sure a driver compatibility issue Autodesk needs to resolve with Intel.

the same problem here

autocad don't support hardware acceleration.

So my new autocad 2012 works on my shiny new apple even worse then version 2009 on my old pc.

This indeed has to be solved.

 

mac os x 10.6.7

Intel HD-video 3000

I cannot use Hardware acceleration on an Certified driver / card.  I get extension lines everywhere.  Autodesk support told me to turn it off.

 

 

yes it's the latest updated driver, also the previous updated driver and the latest driver from nvidia.

You all need to switch to the true AutoCAD for MAC perhaps: anyone dual-booting into Windows (no emulation app) and having the same issue on their Apple hardware?
