|Title: Carlson2016+IntelliCAD8.1 and video cards|
The same as for IntelliCAD8.0, NVidia Quadro video drivers have some problems with IntelliCAD8.1. It is not 100% rule, in many cases it could be ok, but a lot of Quadro users reported about problems. So, there are some notes about how to avoid issues: 1) Recommended video cards for working with IntelliCAD, with decreasing preference: - NVidia GeForce series - ATI/AMD (working on 4+ monitors is not recommended with ATI/AMD) - NVidia Quadro (it could be worked around) - integrated (Intel/ATI) - usually they have bad performance 2) For customers with NVidia Quadro, there are two major recommendation: 2.1) Update video driver to latest possible: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx Select Quadro as Product Type. Select corresponding Series, Product and Opertaing system. Download Type - Quadro ODE Graphics Driver. ->Search, ->Download. Run downloaded driver installer and restart PC after completion. 2.2) For those who has performance issues with NVidia Quadro cards, NVidia techsupport recommends following: In NVidia Control Panel, go to Performance management mode. - turn off the triple buffering - turn on the threaded optimization - turn off the vertical sync 3) Recommended video RAM amount: 4+ GB if you plan to work with large raster images (such as aerial ortho images) or 1-2 GB otherwise.
