Will the U3415W perform adequately with the Alienware X51 R2. If this is a good match which of the two GPU cards below do you recommend for the U3415W keepong in mind that I am not concerned with gaming performance but do CAD, Photoshop and watch videos.
AMD Radeon™ R9 370 with 4GB GDDR5
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 with 2GB GDDR5
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Chris. I did look at that chart but must have miss read it
2650x1600 DP for AMD vs. 4096 X 2160 X 24 bpp @ 60 single DP for NVIDIA.
Any short comings using the X51 R2 i7-4790 + NVIDIA connected to the U3415W monitor?
Chris, yo have peaked my interest with the Optiplex 9010. I am in the process of replacing my present system and the U3415W has shipped out today.
Thought a compact desk top might be a good replacement for my 8 year old XPS 420. The OptiPlex 9020 Small Form Factor appears to have superseded your 9010 and is available with Intel® Core™ i7-4790 Processor (Quad Core, 8MB, 3.60GHz w/HD4600 Graphics and 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Memory. Will the onboard HD4600 Graphics render 3D rotations smoothly in CAD and smooth video at 3440x1440?
Yes. The 9020 can use both of its onboard DisplayPorts in addition to the added discrete video card ports. But, the Optiplex 9020 has four chassis types. The first three are difficult to add hard drives, so go with the full size tower.
Optiplex 9020 with HD4600 Integrated Graphics arrived yesterday and drives the U3415W @ 3440x1440 just fine
