I`m about to bye a new portable computer to replace my current workstation.
Has anyone had any luck with graphic cards like:
AMD Radeon HD 6630M 1Gb/ Intel HD Graphics 3000
AMD RADEON HD 6470M 1GB
I cant seem to find a smal laptop (max 14") with Nvidia Quadro or AMD Fire pro.
We currently work in Inventor 2010 but we are going to uppgrade in some time.
I do models and drawings with up to 5000 components. No rendering i studio.
All answers are helpfull. Thank you
Steer as far away from the Radeon line as you can if you are using Inventor. If you cannot find a QuadroFX or FireGL mobile card, you can consider a capable GeForce M card with a WHQL certified driver.
Thank you for your answer!
What is it that not are going to work with these graphics cards that I suggested?
Can Invertor start and run wit them?
What is goig slower?
What kid of prolem is there?
Its really annoying that there are no smal & light 13" or 14" laptops with decent graphics card.
This is the smalest one i have found with wthat I think is a good graphic card?
There is a 14" model to but I cant seem to find it in europe
A Radeon card will crash Inventor. It is not certified for use and is a video game card, not a CAD card. The old joke is ATI stands for 'Always Trashes Inventor.'
The HP machine will be fine. Anything that has a workstation class video card is likely going to at least have a 15.6" screen. They aren't going to put a big card into a machine with a small screen that cannot fully show off the capabilities of the card. If you want to use Inventor on a laptop, you definitely need to be looking at a workstation class card like nVidia Quadro with as much RAM as you can get.
Check out the HP Elitebook 8460w - this is a 14-inch mobile workstation sporting the AMD FirePro M3900 which is certified for Autodesk applications. Currently available in US and Canada. We have a promo SKU XU097UT#ABA that includes 8GB memory, 500GB HDD and Win 7 Pro 64.
