Advanced Micro Devices Inc. says it is advancing application performance with stunning imagery through the introduction of the first commercially available 3D workstation graphics card with DisplayPort support.

Image fidelity
The ATI FireGL V7700 professional graphics accelerator provides superior rendering speed, 3D performance and color fidelity for Computer Aided Design (CAD), Digital Content Creation (DCC) and Medical Imaging professionals. ATI FireGL V7700 delivers the top-quality image quality needed to create photorealistic visualizations of real-world objects and environmentslike the design concept for a new aircraft or a home remodelby providing designers with The Ultimate Visual Experience.

"Imaging and 3D professionals require innovative, high-performance solutions and are increasingly turning to AMD to meet their real-world needs," said Janet Matsuda, senior director of professional graphics at AMD. "The ATI FireGL family of workstation graphics accelerators is designed to deliver visible advantages and performance leadership at every price point, from entry level to ultra-high end," "This accelerator with DisplayPort support is the latest example of AMD's leadership in delivering new graphics technologies ahead of the competition."

The new ATI FireGL V7700 workstation graphics accelerator with DisplayPort support brings The Ultimate Visual Experience to life. The card features a 10bit display engine that can produce over 1 billion colors at any given time, delivering unprecedented image fidelity at a lower cost.1

Low cost, high performance
The ATI FireGL V7700 supports emerging technologies while being optimized to work with today's existing technologies. ATI FireGL accelerators are engineered to deliver continued innovation and reliability for a wide range of professional OS environments, including Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Linux. The unified driver, which supports all ATI FireGL workstation products, helps reduce the total cost of ownership by simplifying installation, deployment and maintenance.

Additional features include 512Mbyte of memory as well as Dual Link DVI output: the combination of DisplayPort output and a Dual Link enabled DVI output, generates a multi-monitor desktop over 5,000pixels wide from a single accelerator. With native multi-card support, users can see more and do more using four displays driven by two ATI FireGL products in the same workstation.

The ATI FireGL workstation graphics accelerators are thoroughly tested and certified with major CAD and DCC applications, helping ensure reliability and stability. Based on a new generation GPU with 320 unified shader units, the ATI FireGL V7700 maximizes throughput by automatically directing graphics horsepower where it's needed most. Intelligent management of computational resources enables enhanced utilization of the GPU delivering real-time rendering of complex models and scenes while increasing frame rates.

The ATI FireGL V7700 3D workstation graphics accelerator card begins shipping this month. The MSRP is $1,099.
