AMD today announced two new workstation products;
ATI FirePro V8700 and FirePro V3750. V8700 comes with 1GB frame buffer memory
and has 800 shader units while V3750 features 256 MB of frame buffer
memory with 320 shader processing units. The new ATI FirePro™ V8700 and ATI FirePro™ V3750 are expected to being
shipping in fourth quarter 2008.
AMD today announced two new workstation products in Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS
(IBC 2008)—Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC)
professionals who require maximum performance from their workstations can turn
to AMD (NYSE: AMD) and the powerful new ATI FirePro™ V8700 graphics accelerator,
which provides a 40 percent performance gain for memory intensive
applications. Additionally, the new ATI FirePro™ V3750 delivers superior
performance in an entry class professional graphics accelerator. Delivering on
the AMD commitment to the professional graphics market, these products join the
ATI FirePro family of professional graphics accelerators introduced last month
at Siggraph 2008 in Los Angeles: ATI FirePro™ V5700 and ATI FirePro™ V3700.
“Adobe Production Premium pushes the envelope of performance and is highly
optimized for the GPU (graphics processor unit). Our customers will welcome the
speed gains delivered by the new ATI FirePro graphics accelerators,” said Giles
Baker, group product manager, Adobe Systems Incorporated.
“As a leader in 2D and 3D design software, Autodesk is committed to delivering
products that take advantage of the features, performance and reliability that
the ATI FirePro workstation graphics cards can provide,” said Kevin Tureski,
director of product development, Autodesk Media & Entertainment. “In addition to
seeing their designs in advance with complete accuracy, our customers need to
experience every nuance that empowers them to save time and money, improve
quality, and foster innovation. ATI FirePro workstation graphics cards are a
great complement to Autodesk products.”
“Creative professionals requiring realistic lighting and shading of complex
models and objects will see the difference with the powerful ATI FirePro V8700
graphics accelerator,” said Janet Matsuda, senior director, AMD Professional
Graphics. “These new product offerings are in keeping with what the ATI FirePro
brand represents: delivering performance and features that matter to discerning
engineers and designers.”
Empowering Professional Graphics Users with Must-Have Features
ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator is ideally suited for users who work with
large models and shader-intensive applications offering a large frame buffer for
complex and large data sets plus a 30-bit display pipeline for accurate color
reproduction and superior visual quality. By utilizing GDDR5 memory technology,
engineers and designers can focus on project work without concerns for memory
limitations that traditionally impact applications. This ultra high-end
workstation solution with 1GB frame buffer memory also features 800 shader (or
stream) units. ATI FirePro V8700 graphics accelerator features two DisplayPort
and a Dual-Link DVI-I display outputs.
ATI FirePro V3750 is the industry’s first 3D workstation graphics accelerator in
the entry space showing an average of 30 percent performance improvement over
the previous generation1 accelerating certain CAD applications by as much as 40
percent3. As the first graphic accelerator in this class to feature DisplayPort
outputs, this entry-level graphics product features 256 MB of frame buffer
memory with 320 shader (or stream) processing units, dual link DVI and two
DisplayPort connections, together generating a multi-monitor desktop of over
5000 pixels wide from a single accelerator.
At IBC 2008, September 12-16, AMD will showcase ATI FirePro professional
graphics accelerators at Stand 7.H36 at the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam.
The new ATI FirePro™ V8700 and ATI FirePro™ V3750 are expected to being
shipping in fourth quarter 2008.
