Can anyone explain to me the difference between a Graphics Accelerator chip (Intel) and a Graphics Card such as a Nvidia Quattro FX 1400?
Our IT guy speced my new computer with a Accelerator chip that has 368Mb of memory, to replace my old computer that has the FX1400. I spend half of my time coming back from crashes, and I'm having a difficult time explaining to him and management that an accelerator is not a GPU per se. About 40% of my work nowadays is 3D and all of the other MEP trades that I xref in are 3D. I'm using Vanilla 2009 CAD.
