My current PC (Acer M3970) does not use UEFI. Will the above card work in a PC with a legacy bios? If not, are there other 4K capable cards that will work? Thanks!
fsadough care to take this FirePro question?
Should not be a problem. What is your OS?
64-bit Windows 10
Is there a manual that indicates the BIOS requirement?
I don't quite follow. A GPU even with a UEFI Video BIOS should be able to work with a system set to Legacy BIOS, if it doesn't, then it is a system or OS issue and not a GPU issue. There is no manual from our side. Check with ACER.
I just checked Aspire M3970 specification page. Win 10 seems not to be supported. Double check with ACER.
I wish to contribute by sharing my personal experience based on the response that Mr fsadough, FirePro and Radeon Pro expert, has offered you.
Radeon Pro WX 3100 supports legacy BIOS on Dell Inspiron 530 (2007) under Windows 10 1809 and 18.Q4 driver
Dell webpage support for Ispiron 530 shows Windows 10 isn't OS supported
you should look for information about successful experiences of other M3970 owners upgrading their systems with GPUs not officially supported by the manufacturer through Windows 10.
Thanks to everyone for their responses. I think it's time for me to do a major upgrade and get a new PC.
