Can it be used for Bitcoin mining? OpenCL computations? Folding@home? Yes ^ it should be possible. BOINC as well. Only way to know for sure is to test it and see if the computes fail or not. With BOINC you would be able to assign all GPU workloads to the artifacting card and zero to your primary card. Have you tried beta drivers? Have you monitored the ...

The manufacturer recommends a minimum of 300W power supply to run this graphics card. So if your PSU has a maximum of 150W it won't be able to run it without trouble. Also, if I googled it right, your PC is an All-in-one, which in most cases means that you have no options to upgrade CPU or GPU on that machine. The problem with those computers is that in ...

According to AMD's specifications, it supports up to 2560x1600 over DisplayPort or dual-link DVI (but not VGA or HDMI). 2560x1600 is not 4k.

Open Nvidia control panel -> click on desktop menu on the top-> click on "Add "Run with graphic processor menu to Context Menu"" if it is not already checked. Then to open the game, right click and select "Run with graphic processor menu to Context Menu". Hopefully it will force the laptop to use Nvidia gpu to run the game.

If it is not automatically switching then you might have to manually switch it before starting your game. I would recommend reading through the documentation. You can Google "hp graphics switching nvidia" or check out these links: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03519217&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en ...

This KB Article details the setup inside Windows 7. There is a hotkey for use with projectors and multiple monitors to tell it to "Extend" your desktop. Once you do this you should be able to enable the monitor in the settings if it does not automatically do so. Also make sure your monitor is set to the correct input if it has multiples. You may need to ...

PCI Express 3.0 is backward compatible with 2.0, the transfer speed is just lower. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_3.x) However, depending on the PSU quality (no-name entry-level or known-brand), a 350W PSU can deliver as low as 150W which will not be enough at full load. At peak load your computer can draw as much as 200W, including ...

The HX850 model is very modular. You'll need to connect two of the PCI-e power cables between the power supply and your graphics card for it to function properly. Don't connect any less! These modular cables should've come in the package with your power supply unit. Plug the 8-pin blue connector of both cables into any of the blue connectors on the power ...

Your eyes can certainly recognize much more colors than 32bit depth allows to display. If you look closely you can clearly see the line separating colors in various gradients, like the one mentioned above. 48-bit color depth is very useful if you're working with 48-bit images, which will make your gradients, fades etc much smoother, if you find a printing ...

This isn't really a fix but it could be. Go get the latest drivers for your video card in case you haven't. From there, if you're on a laptop check for function key buttons to toggle displays. Windows also can do the same thing by right clicking your desktop -> screen resolution -> click the monitor that isn't working and set it how you want it. ...

Go to device manager then click on your graphic card using right button and select "Properties". Then press on tab "Details" and select device identificators. Post these identificators here. That should be something like "PCI\VEN_10D&DEV_..." Then we should be able to determine problem.

dxdiag is showing this because that is the amount of your system memory that is able to be shared between the graphics card and CPU. It is nothing to do with the amount of onboard memory on the graphics card or your amount of system ram but is instead effectively the amount of memory that can be used to buffer textures and data before it gets sent over to ...

Since your display supports HDMI 1.4 and, according to Wikipedia, 2560×1600p75 is supported since HDMI 1.3, you’ll face no problems when using HDMI. For your intent, it is absolutely equal to DisplayPort. HDMI cables are no longer “versioned”. Instead, they are separated into “Standard” and “High Speed”, with the latter being capable of 4K etc. So your ...

Displayport is the way to go, because it was meant exactly for this. HDMI has a lower bandwidth and some videocards will natively have DisplayPort as extra channel, but limit the use of HDMI+DVI. For example, if you have an ATI card, you can have 2 DVI ports, or a DVI and HDMI port, but not 2 DVI and HDMI port. However, next to 2 of these, you can have a ...

Go with the DisplayPort. Although the high speed HDMI cable offers true 4k (4096 x 2160) and the DisplayPort only offers 4k formatted for 16:9 i believe (3840 x 2160), the DisplayPort offers a refresh rate of up to 60hz, while the HDMI is limited to 24hz, and both surpass your resolution needs. You can find more info here: ...

In your case, DisplayPort is probably going to be the better option. The newest DisplayPort standard (1.2) supports 21.6 Gbit/s bandwidth, while the newest HDMI (2.0) standard only supports a bandwidth of 18 Gbits/s. Your RF-G1167 can't be any higher than 1.2, and, as such, won't support Ultra-HD resolutions (according to the page on the BestBuy website). I ...

Electrically you would be able to connect one monitor to the DP on your R9 and one or two more monitors top the Matrox card. The only problem you may run into are the drivers. On windows XP and older you only had one single graphics driver. From Vista onward (and that includes win8) you should be able to run multiple drivers and use both cards. I ...

If it was your graphics card drivers, safe mode would bypass it. The vertical lines you described, if you see these right at boot (before windows), then it's probably your Graphics Card hardware. If you have another cheap card, or on-board video, try that it it should resolve your issue of accessing windows. If that works, your card is done and you need a ...

I don't have that exact set up, but yes you should be able to. With the converter, everything should work. Assuming you are using windows 7, once you connect the monitors it should be a fairly self explanatory once you right click on your desktop -> screen resolution -> detect monitors. Sometimes you can just connect them, and you can use all 3 monitors ...

At work I use a laptop which has a VGA port and a HDMI port. - My monitors have VGA/DVI/HDMI ports in them and so my configuration is VGA -> VGA and HDMI -> HDMI. This works perfectly for a dual screen setup and I can't think of a reason why your laptop would not support it. Just make sure you get the adapter you need if your monitor(s) don't have HDMI ...

First, It's reasonably easy to troubleshoot an internet connection using speed test sites such as http://www.speedtest.net/ or http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/. Always remember a single speedtest is telling you more about current internet/local network conditions than it is about the overall health of your connection. Multiple speedtests from multiple ...

Use the "extend desktop" option. If you're using a web browser to view, don't maximize the window, set it to a windowed, non-full screen state, then drag the side of the window to the other monitor, it should then span the two. Then size the width and height manually.

I replaced cards for a graphic artist a while back for a similar reason... Hers had black lines and distortion instead of green. That did solve it... A bad video cable can do things like that too. I would try that first.

Different graphics cards operations perform differently within a GPU. The architecture and drivers may be optimized for 2D at the expense of 3D, for instance, or for shader throughput at the expense of geometry calculations. Desktop graphics performance ("Graphics") is a different set of API calls than a typical gaming graphics application. Likely they're ...

You likely have a laptop with something like NVIDIA Optimus which totes both lower and higher performance graphics capabilities. More information on your current laptop would be necessary to tell you more. Edit: In your particular case I would surmise that the CPU is potentially responsible for the Graphics rating while the Intel HD Graphics 4000 if rated ...

you dont need the first two, they are for updating the nvidia software, and i would disable them, or set to manual so they might start if you are using the nvidia control console. I would disable shadowplay ONLY IF you run verylight-light gpu tasks. if you use any graphic software / games / video / dual screen - keep it.

Also check to make sure your CPU isnt throttling due to heat. You can download throttlestop to force your cpu to keep up the turbo just watch the heat. Also make sure the laptop is plugged in while gaming.

You might want to check this reference for WebGL as referenced by Google's support page. It's disabled (by default) in some cases for stability and conformance purposes. However, it doesn't mean that the card doesn't support it at all. I believe you can enable/force enable them, depending on the situation.

Unfortunately, with the currently available operating systems, you cannot use your GPU ("3d card") to improve the desktop rendering quality. The simple reason for this is that to use GPU and multisampling or supersampling, your OS would need to push the original (or high enough quality) data to the GPU pipeline. For example, the OS and graphics libraries ...

As far as I could understand you check all parts, such as CPU, PSU, MB. So if the parts are believed to be OK themselves there could be a few issues with having all the parts connected properly and of compliance between parts. Remember that: CPU requires additional Power connector to be plugged in MB. CPU should be compliant with a particular MB. RAM ...

Almost every part of your system participates in the decoding and presentation of video files, and any one of them could be a bottleneck. One attribute of a video is its Mbps value - this is effectively the amount of data that needs to be processed in a second to display the video. A 4K video could have any Mbps value, but lets say 15Mbps for the sake of ...

It is pretty simple, and certainly not conspiratorial. It has to do with basic economics and finance. Let's start with the CAD software. CAD software programmers and that programmer community is pretty inwardly focused. To be sure, the math behind the user interface is very complex, and absorbs huge amount of resources to develop. There is an effort to make ...

system preferences > displays. This should allow you to customize them separately. If you mirror your displays you can optimize for a specific monitor. If you use each as it's own then customizing for both is possible

The R9 270 uses 150W of power. I don't know what other equipment you have in your computer, but it doesn't sound like you will have sufficient power. I recommend at least a 500W PSU for an otherwise standard PC build. If you're not sure how much your computer consumes, try to virtually build the system on http://pcpartpicker.com (including all disks, fans, ...

On the Gigabyte page they state that that GPU requires a 500W PSU with two 6-pin external power connectors. The PSU you link to is only 430W and only has one 6-pin external power connector. Look for PSU with at least 500W and with two 6-pin external power connectors

The clip at the end of the PCI-E slot just helps hold the graphics card in place. There is nothing to worry about as long as the case is stable. You can use any other slot that is on the motherboard without changing any BOIS settings.

If i understand correctly you want to expand your desktop over screen 1 and 2 and then duplicate either of them onto the HDTV.

Your LCD needs to support DVI-A, DVI-I Single Link, or DVI-I Dual Link. Your monitor only supports analog. Your DVI to VGA adapter by hardware specs is analog only. The only unknown is your monitor and whether it supports an analog mode. DVI was introduced in 1999. It doesn't sound like your LCD is that old, so it might not have DVI-A. You will likely need ...

Most modern monitors should still cope with much lower resolutions even if they have to do some horrible looking interpolation. I would double check that your VGA to DVI cable supports analogue signals. It's possible your cable only supports a digital connection and your rather ancient VGA card is only producing an analogue one..

If you have a VGA port on your monitor, it should work. However, the video card cannot run the monitor at its native resolution (23-inch monitors are generally 1920×1080). 1990s video cards like the 3D Rage Pro simply were not designed to handle resolutions anywhere near full HD, and the notion of "high definition" simply wasn't mainstream back then. ...

I have the same laptop, but with a 7670M AMD graphic card. If you haven't found the solution to this yet, this is what I did(and it worked): Go to Device Manager from control panel. Disable the AMD graphic card. Run Premiere Pro from that config. Enable AMD card again. Premiere Pro runs perfectly fine after that. Hope this helped. Thanks.

In short, NO. Overclocking your chipset will not get you a significant improvement in graphics while playing games. It probably won't even get you a noticeable improvement in graphics. You might get an extra 1-2 fps if you lucky.

Sorted in the end. The Windows "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" Driver seems to be the correct one. After downloading some windows updates and restarting, the problem sorted itself out.
