AMD introduces ATI FirePro V9800
The good people over at AMD are certainly more than capable of keeping up with the Joneses where graphics processing cores are concerned, and they have come back from the brink of defeat in the past for a fair number of times already. Well, the company aims to take the game by the scruff of its neck with their latest and most powerful professional graphics card to date, known as the ATI FirePro V9800. Full well capable of supporting up to half a dozen monitors thanks to its ATI Eyefinity technology, it will target those who dabble in digital content creation (DCC), computer aided design (CAD) and visualization, catering for folks who want advanced features and high performance with cost as no object.
The ATI FirePro V9800 is more than capable of holding the entire graphic data in a single frame buffer, hence enabling it to drive six monitors without the need for a sync card. Apart from being the ultimate workstation graphics solution for the professional graphics industry, we’re pretty sure that you can use it for your games although it might be considered to be overkill for some quarters. Basically, this will target more of the professional segment than anyone else. The ATI FirePro V9800 will retail for $3,499, delivering unparalleled performance at that price point.
With the aforementioned ATI Eyefinity Technology coupled with half a dozen Mini DisplayPort outputs, the ATI FirePro V9800 will pave the way for seamless, plug-and-play multi-monitor use, making it the first professional graphics solution to do so. Users who always want to find ways to maximize their work environment for increased productivity will find that ATI’s Eyefinity technology more than fulfilling, leading to an expansive desktop resolution of up to 5760 x 2160. With 4GB GDDR5 memory, you won’t be short on performance either, while 3D Stereo and Synchronization lets it lead the way in the industry in terms of trends and comprehensive support.
