I am looking into building some Watchout ITX cases and want to use one of the two video cards to drive the video. Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100

I wanted to reach out to the forum to see if anyone has direct experience with these cards or their bigger brothers (full size GTX 1080 and WX7100) in terms of software issues and hardware issues. Things like drivers, features or OS issues, etc.   Anything solid you have witnesses on your builds would be helpful.

 

I currently use Fire Pro 7100's and they have performed well, but I do have some issues when updating drivers.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

We are using the WX7100 model in our current rental servers and for customer builds. It works fine and only needs one slot.

The only issue you might have is that it will not play more than 3 outputs with 4K when the OS is Windows 7. This is a known bug of AMD and is related to all AMD Fire Pro and Radeon Pro cards.

 

We do not use any consumer cards due to the lack of support and the risk of rather short product cycles.

 

Greetings from Berlin!

 

Rainer

That's good advice.

I will be doing 1080 across four channels on this build, so it sounds like I can expect good performance in the configuration on the WX5100.

Thank Rainer.
