Message Text: AMD's business GPU division today released its latest 40nm GPU, the FirePro V3900.

The entry-level card for workstations is leveraging AMD's latest graphics features, including AMD Eyefinity technology. According to AMD, the new FirePro V3900 provides up to 95% better application performance than the competition. The AMD FirePro V3900 will be available in select workstation systems today and will be sold for USD$119 MSRP at select online resellers. This positions it directly against NVIDIA's GT216 based Quadro 400, and almost $50 below NVIDIA's GF108 based Quadro 600.

The card features 1 GB of DDR3 RAM, which drives memory bandwidth of almost 29 GB/s. The new card could be considered as a business version of the Radeon HD 6570 DDR3. Clocked at 650MHz and coupled with 1GB of 900MHz DDR3, the hardware specs are identical to the DDR3 version of the Radeon HD 6570.

Compared to the FirePro V4900, the V3900 has a lower core clock (650MHz vs. 8000MHz) and also used GDDR3 instead of GDDR5. Regarding power consumption, the the V4900 was a full profile card rated for 75W and the V3900 is a low-profile card rated for 50W.



The V3900 will be able to drive up to 5 monitors using the upcoming DisplayPort MST hubs. Until then, the card can only drive up to 2 monitors via its DP 1.2 and DL-DVI ports.

AMD FirePro products are tested and certified with many software applications to ensure compatibility. OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL support means users can render and manipulate models using the broadest range of tools and applications and know the graphics card is compatible with current and future software applications.

The AMD FirePro V3900 has also received certification for a variety of applications including AutoCAD, UGS NX, PTC Creo, SolidWorks and Autodesk 3Ds Max.
