    Default AMD Radeon 6000 series

    Does anyone know of performance of Revit 2012 on AMD Radeon HD 6000 series video card? I am specifically thinking of getting HD 6450 from Dell and our usage is primarily Revit MEP and AutoCAD MEP with rendering being done very, very rarely. The 6000 series isn't on Autodesk's list, and I am not sure this is due to the 6000 series being introduced fairly recently, or they somehow don't meet the standards. Dell doesn't offer anything other than Radeon HD 6000 on the decently priced Optiplex 790 series with i7 processor.

    I have an HD 5770 in my Dell Studio XPS with an i7, also due to that one being the only one offered when I ordered the machine last Fall. It works decently well, and I'll tell you that rendering performance pretty rocks on this machine. I have a few graphical glitches from time to time on my dual widescreen displays that are not Revit-related I don't think. It's not a big deal, though.

    Given the choice, I would rather have an nVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 or 500 series. You might order your machine with the cheapest graphics solution they offer and then get a 1GB or higher GTX card for around $200 separately.
