    1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

    Because Liquid users have lots of different systems, I'm wondering what will or might happen if I install MC5 on a new hp laptop with i5 and a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 5650 chip?

    Of course, it's not supported, but I'm wondering if any has tried an ATI card?

    Chances are it will work OK but some effects that use OpenGL will have to resort to software rendering and will not have realtime preview. Also, Avid FX will complain about the OpenGL issue but will probably work OK. Depending on how much you use OpenGL effects will determine how much of an issue this is for you. The best thing to do is download the trial version of MC5 and give it a go on that system and see how it works for you.

    3.15GHz E8500 CPU, Intel MB w P35 chipset, 4GB memory, Pioneer DVD burner, onboard audio, nVidia Quadro FX1700 512MB , 2TB (4 x 500GB) Raid 0 on Vantec... [view my complete system specs]
