graphics card recomendations

Postby tas » Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:51

Hi,
just looking on proven GPUs that work well for a PyraCube system, (pyramix & Vcube on a single machine).
Not too fancy necessarily. Quiet as well..

thanks

The current recommended graphics adaptors are the built-in Intel chipsets. So, this makes it easier, if also more limited, to pick a suitable candidate, by choosing just the motherboard.

Just a quick observation.
When doing 32 channel mixdowns from DSD256 I get playback stalls every time the graphics updates using the internal GPU.
I don't get these on my older system using an older ATI HD4350 GPU.
There is more research that needs to be done here.....
All the best,

Mark, I suppose this is on a MassCore system?
