Message Text: AMD today introduced the newest generation of professional graphics cards -- AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900. The company claims that the new cards are doubling performance of competitive offerings in key professional market applications.

Created for the design, engineering, financial, and medical fields, the new graphics cards offer AMD PowerTune and GeometryBoost technologies in addition to AMD Eyefinity multi-display support.

"Today AMD FirePro, the industry's fastest growing line of professional graphics cards, gets even better with the introduction of the AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, AMD. "From generation to generation of graphics performance, this success stems from our unwavering focus on the needs of the professional with a complete range of professional graphics solutions. AMD provides superior application performance matched with the workflow and productivity advantages of AMD Eyefinity technology -- this ultimately is the measure that matters to professionals today."

AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology makes it possible to support up to six displays in one large workspace. With the introduction of the AMD FirePro V7900, which supports up to four displays, and AMD FirePro V5900 which supports up to three displays, engineers and designers have an expansive desktop space from which to see more data, open more applications and view more information at the same time.

New for this generation of AMD FirePro products is AMD PowerTune technology. This power management technology provides direct control over GPU power usage. Applications enjoy ultimate performance with dynamic clock optimization, while minimizing workstation energy usage. Also new for this generation is GeometryBoost technology -- a hardware capability that processes two primitives per clock cycle. The result is faster geometry performance, ensuring smooth handling of complex models for CAD and DCC users. The AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900 also feature DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 support as well as 2GB GDDR5 frame buffer.

AMD FirePro V7900 professional graphics cards feature four outputs from one card for a low total solution cost, enabling the ability to drive four independent displays from a single slot card. Additionally, this graphics card includes the ability to support framelock and genlock via the AMD FirePro S400 synchronization module as well as 3D stereo with the included expansion bracket.

AMD FirePro V5900 professional graphics cards deliver a mid-range high performance solution without exceeding 75W power draw with power saving techniques for reduced wattage. Coupled with AMD Eyefinity technology, the AMD FirePro V5900 supports three display outputs.

With the AMD FirePro V7900 starting at $999 USD MSRP and AMD FirePro V5900 starting at $599 USD MSRP, both cards are available from professional graphics retailers worldwide.
