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 display2 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 connectors and a Dual-Link DVI-I display output.
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.
