AMD gives DX11 support and Eyefinity to professional/workstation crowd

| Video Cards News | Posted: Apr 7, 2010 12:44 pm

AMD has just brought its Eyefinity multi-monitor technology together with DX11 support to the enterprise market segment with the introduction of its new ATI FirePro V8800 series graphics card for professional workstations.

 

This card is essentially a HD 5870 catered to a different crowd of users that call upon its capabilities for such things as digital content creation and CAD. It includes 2GB of GDDR5 memory that will be more appreciated in other areas than what it's able to do for gamers.

Businesses will also appreciate the card's ability to fully support the OpenGL 4.0 standard, not to mention the $300 lower price tag over its predecessor, the FirePro V8750 that was $1,800.

 

If its performance results you want to see in a number of different testing environments, check out a couple full reviews over at PC Perspective and Hot Hardware.
