"The balanced power of the ATI FireGL product line has the accuracy and speed needed for medical imaging applications like mammography screening," said Albert Xthona, product manager for Digital Mammography at Barco. "For example, Mammography viewing uses 10-bit precision to help deliver the most information to the eye of the radiologist, and increasingly other medical applications will rely on 10-bit gray and 30-bit color rendering. With the additional speed offered by the PCI Express 2.0 interface, very large data sets are handled smoothly, saving time for busy medical staff."
The new ATI FireGL V7700 workstation graphics accelerator with DisplayPort support features a 10-bit display engine, a DisplayPort interface and PCI Express 2.0. It supports Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Linux operating systems. The unified driver, which supports all ATI FireGL workstation products, helps reduce the total cost of ownership by simplifying installation. Additional features include 512MB of memory, Dual Link DVI Output and the AutoDetect feature, which automatically directs graphics horsepower where it?s needed most.
The ATI FireGL V7700 3D workstation graphics accelerator card is expected to begin shipping in April 2008 and will be available from system integrators and AMD channel partners worldwide. The MSRP is $1,099 USD.
