ATi had just launched a version of FireGL that comes with a whopping 1GB of
graphics memory. The ATi FireGL V7350 is ATi’s latest shot at the workstation
(Linux / Windows) market – a segment that’s dominated by NVIDIA’s line of Quadro
line products. This new FireGL cards feature an R520 core, that’s also used in
X1800 family of gaming cards from ATi. The R520 core on this FireGL card is
clocked at 600MHz, and Memory clocked at 650MHz. Offering 3 times the processing
power of a 3GHz Pentium 4 CPU, these new cards can pump about 84Gflops in
floating point performance. Sadly, this FireGL card doesn’t support CrossFire
MultiGPU technology – a set back for ATi, since NVIDIA’s flagship Quadro FX 4500
offers SLi capability. The FireGL V7350 is being sold at an eye popping price
tag of USD$ 2000.
