    I'm considering upgrading my home computer and have a few questions; one, does or will VW support SLI or Crossfire in the near future?; two, does VW utilize multiple cores, and does it utilize multi-threading?; three, AMD or Nvidia graphics cards, if you don't look at the specs (that is they are evenly matched at gaming performance)?

     

    1) No, and I do not see it coming anytime soon.

    2) For rendering, yes. For generating geometry and other mathematical calculations, not yet.

    3) Generally there isn't much difference between the two brands if you don't consider the specific specs. Sometimes one or the other will have a driver related issue or a problem with a specific model but otherwise not much difference.

    Hi Jim,

    Looking at the Dell Precision Mobile Workstation 3510 i7 with the AMD FirePro W5130M - 2 GB GDDR5.
    External monitor will be connected. To be used by a Sales person.

    Will this machine serve him well for a couple of years?

     

    That hardware seems like a solid selection yes, should easily get 2-3 years out of it, even longer if the projects worked on are not extremely large or complex.
