Autocad 2012 and graphic card NOT open GL ?

Hello
I plan to buy a laptop Clevo S3101 equipped with a graphics card: Intel ® GMA 3150. This card is not OpenGL.
Autocad 2012 accepts this configuration?
thank you

Hi,

 

at least OpenGL is not necessary for running AutoCAD, but my personal opinion is "never use an Intel GC for AutoCAD". There are too much problems listed (also in this forum). I would try to get an ATI or a nVidia!

Thanks Alfred.:smileywink:

 

I'll follow your advice and choose an ATI or a nVidia.

Dear Alfred,

 

I'm writting again to you about my graphic card choice for autocad V2012, I want ot use on a laptop. What do you think of this :

Carte graphique AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M de 1 Go, in this case I'll buy a DELL with Intel® Core™ i5-2430M 2,40 GHz.

 

Thanks in advance

Pierre

Hi,

 

>> What do you think of this

You can start now asking me every single card you imagine .... I don't have them all (I also don't have all tested) :smileywink:

Looking to >>>this site<<< it seems to be better-mid-range and I can't tell you more than that.

 

As it is more ATI than Intel I would say it will be better fitting to AutoCAD then the Intel one do.
