ATI FirePro Peformance Plug-ins Optimized for AutoCAD, 3ds Max

If you're an AutoCAD or 3ds Max user, you'll find this information out of AMD today to be very interesting. ATI's FirePro application support team have devised a way to drastically increase the performance of FirePro or FireGL workstation graphics cards when running AutoCAD or 3ds Max. AMD has just released a set of performance plug-ins designed to provide additional optimizations for AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2011, 3ds Max 2010, and 3ds Max 2011. With these plug-ins, ATI claims their "FirePro graphics cards offer more than double the performance over comparable consumer graphics cards." AMD claims users can expect significant improvements in visual quality as well.

Plug-ins for AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2011, 3ds Max 2010, and 3ds Max 2011 are available for download here.









Autodesk AutoCAD and 3ds Max Performance Plug-ins

 

Architects, engineers, graphic designers and visual effects artists need stable, reliable and high performance computing solutions to get the job done. To help meet these needs, ATI FirePro professional graphics products are fueled by the combination comprehensive ISV certifications, optimized driver software and leading-edge GPU technology.

AMD collaborated with Autodesk to optimize its latest ATI FirePro hardware for a number of applications, including Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk 3ds Max.


AutoCAD 2010 and 2011

Take your designs further. The new AutoCAD 2010 and 2011 performance plug-ins from AMD are designed to optimize application performance on ATI FirePro professional graphics.

Building, infrastructure and manufacturing practitioners will experience a phenomenal performance boost when running AutoCAD 2010 or 2011 on ATI FirePro professional graphics, compared to AMD's consumer graphics. The entry-level ATI FirePro V3800 achieved almost double the performance per dollar of a mid-ranged consumer graphics card, while the midrange ATI FirePro V5800 achieved more than 2X performance per dollar of a high-end consumer graphics card.


3ds Max 2010 and 2011

Create stunning 3D. The new 3ds Max 2010 and 2011 performance plug-ins from AMD are designed to optimize application performance on ATI FirePro professional graphics.

Visual effects artists and graphic designers creating games, film and television content can take advantage of incredible performance with 3ds Max 2010 and 2011 running on ATI FirePro professional graphics.
