AMD Introduces New Professional Graphics Solutions

AMD announced the AMD FirePro 2270 and ATI FirePro V5800 DVI professional graphics cards. The FirePro 2270 features a fan-less, energy efficient design that consumes less than 10 watts of power on average. This card also offers support for DisplayPort, DVI and VGA connectivity.

The ATI FirePro V5800 DVI can drive two high-resolution dual link DVI displays. With this card, users can stretch one image or application across both screens for expanded field of view and enhanced productivity. The ATI FirePro V5800 DVI professional graphics supports DVI and delivers a full 30-bit display pipeline. Both new cards are currently available.

New AMD FirePro™ 2270 and ATI FirePro™ V5800 DVI professional graphics offer the flexibility IT professionals need to efficiently support various display technologies

SUNNYVALE, Calif. —1/31/2011 - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today introduced the AMD FirePro™ 2270 and ATI FirePro™ V5800 DVI professional graphics cards. AMD designed these new offerings for professionals in the medical, financial, design and engineering fields who require the ability to view and interact with multiple applications simultaneously.

“Because of their superior power consumption and multi-display capabilities, solutions based on the AMD FirePro 2270 and ATI FirePro V5800 DVI deliver strong value for financial, medical and corporate workstation environments,” said Janet Matsuda, general manager, AMD Professional Graphics. “With the AMD FirePro family, we continue to demonstrate our focus on enhancing productivity through an enhanced visual experience.”

As AMD’s only low-profile, passively cooled, dual-display, triple set support solution graphics card, the AMD FirePro 2270 delivers multi-display capabilities for increased efficiency, longevity and compatibility. For example, the AMD FirePro 2270 features a fan-less, energy efficient design that consumes 15 watts maximum power and less than 10 watts on average. Additionally, the AMD FirePro 2270 enables efficient multitasking across multiple applications, including graphics intensive applications, helping to prevent system slowdowns. Legacy support for DisplayPort, DVI and VGA connectivity allows for seamless integration into existing installations.

The ATI FirePro V5800 DVI delivers professionals the graphics performance needed to drive two high-resolution dual link DVI displays while offering users the ability to stretch one image or application across both screens for expanded field of view and enhanced productivity. Support for DVI, the most common digital interface, makes setting up dual-display configurations easier than ever. The ATI FirePro V5800 DVI professional graphics delivers a full 30-bit display pipeline to enable increased color reproduction and superb visual fidelity and supports packed pixel mode to support dual 5MP medical displays.

With AMD FirePro 2270 starting at $149 US SEP and ATI FirePro V5800 DVI starting at $469 US SEP, both cards are available from professional graphics retailers worldwide.

I think he owns a V8800 or a V9800 which are superior. I wonder if he has a Vimeo channel or a website where he shows off his work?

He has a huge bone to pick with AMD cards. He has driver problems with them, or at least, he was,..........Smile

Bummer....

I saw that he uses a FirePro V8800, If its troubling him a lot, I would suggest that he sells the card or trade it for a Quadro 4000 ($780). I think it goes head to head with the V8800 in some applications, plus its compatible with Open GL 4.0.

Hope he has resolved the problems.

I've always been curious... What if I, a casual user buy the FirePro 2270. Not for gaming... but lets see better video processing for movies? perhaps connected to a projector?

Would there be a big difference? between the 2270 vs, lets say, the ATI/AMD 5450's?

It really depends on the hardware coolice. he issue realneil is talking about is AMD driver issues, and where some drivers will work between the two series of cards, in many aspects hardware wise the professional cards are made to a different spec. It is kind of like Crucial makes a lot of memory, but people who are really worried about memory performance will most likely get 1-3 specific sets out of all of there memory, or in video cards some times specific model # cards will have very specific over clocking abilities. That is kind of the difference many times between a high end professional GP, and a gaming GPU. The professional series will generally have very specific everything from PCB, to memory type, and even a specific model of the vendors highest GPU, and trace lines. Now buying a professional GPU may get you that, but you will also most likely pay 400% (the price of a gaming equivalent) for it as well.
