AMD today launched the AMD FirePro V4900, an entry-level graphics card designd for Digital Content Creation (DCC) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) professionals.
The AMD FirePro V4900 leverages AMD's Eyefinity2 technology to improve application performance and efficiency. AMD claims that the AMD FirePro V4900 more than doubles the performance of competitive offerings in many CAD and DCC application tests.
The GPU's 1GB of 128-bit GDDR5 RAM drives memory bandwidth of 64 GB/s5, allowing rapid data access, while Microsoft DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL support empowers users to render and manipulate models using a broad range of tools and applications. AMD Eyefinity and DisplayPort 1.2 technology also enable six-screen multi-display set ups.
The AMD FirePro V4900 has also received certification for a variety of applications including Abaqus/CAE 6.11, ANSYS 13.0, Autodesk 2012 3D design software solutions, Bentley System's Microstation V8i, BETA CAE Systems' ANSA and mETA, CEI's EnSight, and EnSight CFD.
