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... Read more...
It didn't take AMD long to respond to the release of NVIDIA's new line of Quadro workstation-class graphics cards. The new flagship FirePro V9800 we'll be showing you here is the latest ultra high end professional graphics card from AMD, that competes in the same space as the 6000 and 5000 models from NVIDIA. It replaces the V8800 as the flagship model of the FirePro line, and targets professionals who require the highest levels of performance and connectivity, with plenty of onboard memory and support for multiple displays...

In case you were wondering, the ATI brand still exists. Radeon and FirePro cards like the V9800 continue to wear the ATI badge, but as we confirmed recently, change is... Read more...
AMD is adding to its FirePro family by announcing the ATI FirePro V9800. This new professional graphics card is capable of supporting up to six monitors with ATI Eyefinity technology. When connecting six monitors via the six Mini DisplayPort outputs, you’ll get a desktop resolution of up to 5760 x 2160. The card has 4GB of GDDR5 memory and is powered by 1,600 stream processors. The ATI FirePro V9800 has an estimated retail price of $3,499. AMD Introduces ATI FirePro™ V9800 – the First and Only Professional Graphics Card Capable of Powering Six Independent Displays Designed for the Demands of Digital Content Creators with Support for up to Six Monitors Using ATI Eyefinity Technology...

As summer winds down, the professional graphics market, it appears, is just starting to heat up. About a month ago, we tested the Fermi based Quadro 6000 and 5000 graphics cards from NVIDIA. Although they were a few months late to the party, our results revealed the Quadro models held a measurable performance advantage over ATI's then flagship product, the FirePro V8800. But as expected, the red team has stepped their game up by offering a new workstation card that looks to close the gap while offering multi-monitor support that NVIDIA can't match currently. The FirePro V9800 offers similar features found in the V8800 we reviewed in April : Cypress GPU, 1600 stream processors, 147.2 GB/s memory... Read more...
We have a couple of pieces of interesting information coming out of AMD this morning, one of them regarding AMD’s continued use of the ATI brand, the other about an inexpensive, active DisplayPort-to-DVI dongle that should make to cost of entry into multi-screen Eyefinity more palatable for budget conscious consumers. Over the last few weeks, you may have heard rumors about AMD no longer using the ATI brand. We can confirm that this is indeed going to be the case.  AMD will shed the ATI brand name soon but it is not happening immediately and will have no effect on existing product. We were told by AMD that moving forward, with the eventual introduction of Fusion-based processors and... Read more...
Select Dell Precision workstations are now offering ATI FirePro V7800, ATI FirePro V5800 and ATI FirePro V4800 professional graphics cards. With these cards, users are able to power up to three independent 30-inch displays at one time using ATI Eyefinity technology. The cards support Microsoft DirectX11, OpenGL 4.0, and OpenCL. The ATI FirePro V7800, ATI FirePro V5800, and ATI FirePro V4800 cards are available on a number of Dell Precision Workstations including models from the R5400, T1500, T3500, T5500, and T7500 lines.

Today at HotHardware we're looking at three of the latest additions to the ATI FirePro workstation graphcis card lineup, the V7800, V4800, and V3800. Without a doubt, the price and performance variance between the products will be considerable. The V7800 is a powerful, high end part that should be closer in performance to the V8800. The V4800 and V3800 are entry level cards that offer similar features to one another, but target consumers on a more limited budget... AMD ATI FirePro Round-up: V7800, V4800, V3800... Read more...
Two short months ago, we evaluated the FirePro V8800 the current king of ATI's workstation graphics card line-up, which replaced the V8750 as the flagship FirePro model. Unfortunately, we were unable to test it alongside any NVIDIA workstation cards for comparison purposes. At the time, we were handcuffed by two unfortunate circumstances. One was the fact that we no longer had Quadro FX cards available for re-testing, and our newly upgraded test bed prohibited us from using previous data for comparison. But also because there wasn't a current generation Quadro FX model available to compete against the V8800. And as of the release of this article, there still isn't.... Read more...
AMD's FirePro line of graphics cards don't get the same level of attention as the consumer-oriented Radeon lineup, but with the introduction of Eyefinity, DisplayPort and DirectX 11, the "professional" line is suddenly becoming a lot more appealing to anyone. Following the introduction of the FirePro V8800, AMD has today rolled out four new additions in the next-gen FirePro family: ATI FirePro V7800, ATI FirePro V5800, ATI FirePro V4800, and ATI FirePro V3800. These cards are aimed at professionals in the digital content creation (DCC) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) industries, and in case those weren't enough, AMD is also unveiling the FirePro 2460 Multi-View. This card is a low-profile one... Read more...
When doing research for a new graphics card, mainstream users might come across a professional workstation-class video card and wonder what all the fuss is about. On the surface, one must look at the enormous price differences and question the justification when technically the hardware used to build the cards is very similar. But those that use workstation GPUs know that these products carry the driver support for specific 3D rendering programs that mainstream video cards do not. While they both accomplish the same basic tasks of processing commands and rendering images on a display, workstation cards are for engineering, digital content creation, and scientific modeling applications--not gaming....

In an effort to get its ATI FirePro 3D cards into the hands of more and more prosumers and creative professionals, AMD has today announced that said graphics accelerators will be offered up on a wide range of HP workstations. Specifically, the entire "top-to-bottom" line of FirePro GPUs can now be ordered within HP's new Z Workstations, and if you're not too savvy on what those may be, here's the rundown: FirePro V7750, V3700 and V5700, all found within HP's Z400, Z600 and Z800 Workstations. Janet Matsuda, senior director, Professional Graphics, AMD, had this to say about the partnership: "AMD and HP together offer the workstation market exceptional tools for creative, scientific and engineering...

Remember the days when we thought that there was no way to get more powerful GPUs without more power consumption? Feels like forever ago, right? Today, AMD has introduced a low-power quad display card that aims to bring "outstanding energy efficiency to multiple display environments." The ATI FirePro 2450 is described as a "low profile quad display graphics accelerator that consumes minimal power, delivering exceptional power efficiency."The card is engineered to operate at less than 18 watts, enabling cool, energy-efficient operation, as well as superior reliability and longevity. Also, the compact form factor means that it can be deployed out into nearly any system, making it ideal for customers... Read more...
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. Certainly not perfect, but 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? The ATI FirePro.ATI has yet to introduce top to bottom FirePro-class products to replace the FireGL, but it's delivered the first four cards of many to come in the... Read more...
