ATI has spent much of the last decade producing the FireGL line of high-end workstation graphics cards, regularly challenging and often times besting competing products from Nvidia's Quadro lineup. ATI's last generation of FireGL products, which we covered heavily, were excellent all around performers. It certainly wasn't perfect (a bit too loud, a bit too expensive), but was definitely solid improvements over the generation of FireGL cards which preceded it. Now in late 2008, we're seeing ATI / AMD's first moves to eventually kill off the long-known FireGL brand. Its replacement?... Read more...
Last week, due to some unexpected circumstances, we were able to post a sneak peek of the RV770 GPU and ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card.  As our limited testing showed, the Radeon HD 4850 was quite promising for a $199 graphics card.  But we weren't able to tell the complete story.  While the initial benchmarks definitely looked good, there was a lot more to talk about in regard to the Radeon HD 4850 and the RV770 GPU at the heart of the card.Today we can finally spill the rest of the beans.  You see, AMD didn't plan to officially announce just one new Radeon HD 4800 series...

As many of you are no doubt aware, AMD is about to release a new line of ATI Radeon graphics cards based on the GPU that was internally codenamed RV770.  Cards based on the GPU were supposed to launch next week, on June 25 to be specific, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, we are able to offer you some preliminary information and benchmark scores a little early.Like the RV670 used on the Radeon HD 3800 series, the RV770 GPU powering the Radeon HD 4850 is manufactured on TSMC's 55nm process node.  A full wafer of RV770 dies is pictured to the left.  At the heart of the...
