Buyer beware: Windows 7 and Windows 8 NOT listed as any of the supported operating systems on the Specs page. It is not listed as compatible on the AMD website either.

If you're planning on upgrading your computer, don't get this card (MS is dropping support for XP in 2014).

And yet you can go right to the drivers page and select OS's From XP through Windows 8. Oh, there's even drivers for Linux too...

Holy Chicken Little!

They still make drivers for my 4870 card too. Funny that.

To my reading, it appears that windows 7 is fully supported. http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?type=2.4.3%3b2.4.5%3b2.4.7&product=2.4.7.3.3.3&contentType=GPU+Download+Detail&ostype=Windows+7+-+64-Bit+Edition&keywords=&items=20

Microsoft 7 Compatible

It will work with Windows 7, but I wouldn't be jumping for joy for 512MB RAM, unless you have a specific use that doesn't require much RAM.

Would this be any better compared to my GTX670? I mainly use it for video editing.

And.. the real question is, what's the estimated hash rate this thing can put out? :D

Is this card better than my nVidia 6600GT?

FirePro, AKA FireGL is a workstation class graphics card. Per Wikipedia:

The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.


TLDNR: They're designed for CAD and the like, but are suitable for gaming, provided compatibility isn't an issue.

That doesn't mean that this video card will cease to work the moment support for XP stops from MS.

Spot on. I still have an old machine running 95 because I have some orphan software that doesn't like the newer windows. There are no updates for 95 but that doesn't stop it from working.

Answer to all your "Is this better than..." questions.

Kakrohn - yes, it should be better than a 6600GT.

If you are not using this for auto cad, there are better options that are cheaper, more compatible, more power efficient, and some don't even require fans. The example below has a better passmark Radeon HD 6570 1GB ($45 after rebate):

passmark 755 vs 768

I can't get over the fact that it only has 1 monitor port. Sure, 2 hdmi, but only one dvi? AND only half a gig of memory? Ick. That tells me all I need to know right there. No thank you.

AMD Crossfire Pro

Currently, many Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR) applications that are geometry bound show good performance scaling, which include Siemens NX, Autodesk Maya, Teamcenter® and Ensight.

For those thinking about gaming, this card is basically a Radeon HD 4670

EDIT: Here's a nice write up on X-bit Labs

What's the point of a signature? Everyone can see who wrote this, over there, to the left.

Actually no. Not HDMI.

CAUTION

This card uses DisplayPort not HDMI. So, you'd need to use a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter to use with many monitors floating around

I've been idly looking for video cards for a few months, and this doesn't fit the bill for what I'm looking for. From my shopping I'd say there are a ton of cards you can get for only a couple of more bucks (if any) with a lot better specs (of course your shopping mileage may vary depending on what you need it to do).

Here's my favorite video card comparison site, with this one highlighted for you....

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?gpu=FirePro+V5700&id=435

If you click around you can sort cards and their competitors on a ton of different criteria.

I made the mistake of getting a video card with Display Port adapter slots and it was a huge pain in the rump. There are cables to convert to HDMI but the added cost makes this card no longer worth it and if you want to convert to *GASP* vga then you had better expect to pay through the nose.

The user's going to pick dancing pigs over security every time.

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/firepro/workstation8.982.8.1.pdf on this page are mentioned supported Workstation Product and Operating System. I did not find the document saying it supports for "FirePro V5700" Am I missing something? The microsoft's Compatibility Center link sends one to download the "Unified Driver Version for Windows 7" on http://support.amd.com!!

It says in the specs it includes one. My friend has the v9800 version of this card and if you're doing maya, CAD, or any other type of intense rendering or modeling than look no further than the v9800


oh and if you need another adapter just goto monoprice; they sell almost any connector or cable you can think of, for like 80% off what you can get it at wal mart for (and its good stuff)

Got this card last time it was up, it doesn't exactly provide amazing gaming performance, but it actually works in my Tyan workstation board (which says it doesn't support graphics cards at all), and it can play TF2 at acceptable framerates. Not a horrible deal, really. And yes, it works with Windows 7 64-bit.

Dual-link DVI should run one of the Korean 27" IPS panels.
