- NOTE: It is very important to get the absolute latest driver for Intel cards from the Intel website. Without them, you'll experience hangs/crashes.
- NOTE: Intel cards are NOT supported on OSX. See below for Supported OSX Graphics cards.
- Mobile GPU should be mid-to-high end, performance-wise, for production work.
- Mobile equivalents of supported pro and consumer level cards are recommended
- Card must be OpenGL 4.0 compliant, Minimum 4GB VRAM required.
- (OpenCL 1.2 is no longer supported with the latest driver for Fermi architecture cards.)
