On the workstation side, Ironlake(previous generation) graphics chips are certified for Photoshop CS4, and Microstation is supposedly in Sandy Bridge. It's strange it has a problem. What may be possible is that the certification is only for the workstation class chips. The HD 3000 equivalent for Xeons is called the Xeon E3 with the HD P3000 graphics.
Thanks for trying guys. Your help is really appreciated with this difficult issue. No one seems to know exactly how to fix the problem. Dell, Intel, Microstation.
I have given in and gone back to the old hardware (for CAD purposes) as we were losing more in lost time than the value of the machines in the first few days of trying to sort it out.
Sorry for the problems you are experiencing. Photoshop CS5 and the latest Bentley Microstation are certified by the ISVs on Xeon E3 with P3000 Gfx. I have provided the links below. Both applications pass all the functional tests and should work with no errors on the system you have described (Win7 i5 with HD3000). If you use a Xeon E3 w/ P3000 GFX you will have advance mode available with Photoshop, and Microstation will run substantially faster than the i5 system. We recommend using at least an entry level WS platform (Xeon E3 w/ P3000 gfx, such as HP Z210) with WS applications for better reliability and performance ( due to WS chipset, ECC memory, hardened gfx drivers etc.). However, your HD3000 system does have enough gfx capability and performance to run Photoshop and Microstation. If you can provide me the details of your Dell system we can try to figure out what might be going on. Also if you have any other questions please let me know. My team drives workstation platform enabling and certifications so we should be able to provide you the latest info.
Here is a sample list of available certs on Xeon E3 w/ P3000 Gfx.
Adobe Photoshop CS5
Adobe Premiere Elements 9

Autodesk Rivet Architecture 2012The main problem in running the Autodesk Rivet software is when i link a Autocad file into my Revit project. It works too slow and just to use basic commands it gets difficult.My file size isn't heavy but yes it does contain layers. Other than this when the Revit file (not linked with CAD) is worked upto certain level, say development of some 10 levels, massing included, the file hangs and closes saying physical memory dump.Is this the problem with the hardware or with the Autodesk Software? Any idea ???Thanks,
