Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

I am using a water-cooled AMD R9 290.
It has 4 GB of video RAM, and it runs verve flawlessly (60 fps and drops down to maybe 45 if fluidity is at 100% and I smudge the fluids around like crazy with a huge brush at 1080p).

I built this computer very recently for gaming, but I also love drawing. I always drew on paper with charcoal or graphite, but this program has made me buy a tablet! (Wacom should really sponsor you, Taron :))
Thanks for this wonderful invention!

P.S. here are the rest of my computer components, just in case they matter in any way (don't know if they help with OpenGL):
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 4.2 GHz 8-core Processor
  • Windows 7 64-bit

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

Very cool, thanks, oh hungry one! :D
Yeah, gaming machines have the perfect gfx card orientation for Verve, hehe! Amazing how much power they have! :)
Now here's a thought I wouldn't mind, Wacom sponsoring me, hehe! Then I better shut up about how I feel in regards to the Cintiq Companion, hahaha! :oops: :lol:

4.2 Ghz? Wow...ok, that is fast! :o
My shivering Xeons crawl along at 2.67Ghz...

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

EVGA NVIDIA GTX 275 (896 MB) --- 2010 --- very good but not quite outstanding performance with verve on a dual monitor setup with a hp 2311x (1920x1080) monitor and a samsung syncmaster 2220wm (1680x1050)

occasionally feels a tiny bit laggy, but overall is very smooth

Nivida GeForce GTX 765M is working like a charm. Haven't seen any problems. (I'll also add that I'm using two monitors)

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

I don't think we have the greatest graphics card, does anyone know if the nvidia geforce gt 220 works alright before I download it? or even how it compares to some of the other graphics cards so i have an idea of how well the program will work before i get my hopes up lol

If it's not in the list, you may add it to the list after having found out, if it is any good for it! :D
(2009 is the release date, that's 5 years ago... I'd be delighted, if it worked!) :?

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

hey it works! it's very laggy with fluidity on though. That might be because of background programs though, i'll test it again later. it will definitely still be fun to play around on regardless, hopefully we can get a new graphics card eventually though haha

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

YAY! That's great news, thank you, weasel! :D
I'm afraid it will be laggy no matter what, considering my shock that it works to begin with, haha, but- yeah- it's kinda time for a new card! ;) (It's weird how 5 years are half an eternity for hardware. I feel like a dinosaur with my 2 or 3 year old Quadro 5000)
