AMD's new FireGL cards 300% faster?

Posted on Wednesday, August 22 2007 @ 00:31:50 CEST by

AMD claims its new FireGL workstation graphics cards offer a 300% improvement in performance, VNU Net reports:
The graphics processing units (GPUs) are targeted at CAD, DCC and medical imaging professionals and come with a new unified shader architecture featuring up to 320 individual stream processing units. The boards that are based on the new GPUs are the ATI FireGL V8650, V8600, V7600, V5600 and V3600. They are being touted as the first to sport 2GB of onboard memor.

ATI has claimed that when running DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1-based professional applications, the cards are 300 per cent faster than the previous professional ATI products.

The proprietary AutoDetect feature automatically optimises the graphics driver based on the user's specific software applications, particularly when running multiple programs. This means that professionals no longer have to manually adjust application-specific settings when switching between applications.

Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of AMD graphics products group, said: "The rich feature set of these latest ATI FireGL boards represents AMD's GPU engineering excellence and provides unprecedented power for design professionals.'
