Re: Recommended Graphic card for LM 20.2 Uma

Thanks a lot, greatly appreciated! With my compliments. I have two standby machines here with the GTX 1660 (6GB) and the non-gaming, dual screen performance in 4k is as good as I get out of a GTX 2080. Thank you! so you tried GTX 2080 on LM and it worked fine? just confirming i got it right, thanks!

Does anybody have any recommendation of a good graphics card that has at least 8 GB RAM and works well with LM 20.2 Uma ? (does not have to be Nvidia)
GeForce GTX 1660. It's about the best value for money. Go beyond that and you start hitting $2000-3000.
Thanks a lot, greatly appreciated!
