Thread: graphics cards and OR

    Default graphics cards and OR

    I am considering a new computer in the fairly near future. The question is about graphics cards.

    1. What is the preferred graphics hardware for OR?
    2. Will AMD graphics work with OR?

    Thanks
    Basil

    If memory serves any good card will work, although Nvidia appears less often in the threads as causing any problems, not so with AMD.
    Get the best CPU you can afford, SSD drive, and a high quality card. At least 8G memory -- more if you can afford it.

    No preference, any expensive nVidia or AMD card will work fine.

    Cheap ones will limit your frame rates just like cheap Intel cards.

    For OR only, use either.

    For any kind of reliable backward MSTS compatibility, avoid AMD

    What would you think of an AMD Radeon Rx Vega M?

    Running NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with two(2) 32 inch monitors. Operates at 51deg. C running OR Monogame 31, Works fine running PRR East V2 with Lots of traffic at 50-60 FPS. Might recommend a bit larger power supply --600 watt is what I use. A SSD also helps.
