Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC) professionals who require maximum performance from their workstations can turn to AMD and the new ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator.
AMD claims that the new graphics accelerator
provides a 40 percent performance gain for memory intensive applications.
ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator offers a large frame buffer for complex and large data sets plus a 30-bit display pipeline for accurate color reproduction and high visual quality. By utilizing GDDR5 memory technology, engineers and designers can focus on project work without concerns for memory limitations that traditionally impact applications. The high-end workstation solution with 1GB frame buffer memory also features 800 shader (or stream) units. ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator features two DisplayPort connectors and a Dual-Link DVI-I display output.
ATI FirePro V3750 is AMD's entry-level 3D workstation graphics accelerator and shows an average of 30 percent performance improvement over the previous generation accelerating. As the first graphic accelerator in this class to feature DisplayPort outputs, this entry-level graphics product features 256 MB of frame buffer memory with 320 shader (or stream) processing units, dual link DVI and two DisplayPort connections, together generating a multi-monitor desktop of over 5000 pixels wide from a single accelerator.
At IBC 2008, September 12-16, AMD will showcase ATI FirePro professional graphics accelerators at Stand 7.H36 at the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam.
The new ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator is expected to begin shipping in fourth quarter 2008 with an MSRP of $1499, and the ATI FirePro V3750 graphics accelerator is expected to begin shipping in fourth quarter 2008 with a MSRP of $199.
