With the mainstream HD 2000 Series graphics cards having been out for a good while now, AMD have just kicked off a new breed of ATI FireGL graphics cards based on the same architecture (using R600 and RV630 cores), these catering to the workstation market.
Included is a top to bottom lineup of cards ranging from the entry-level V3600 model with 256MB memory (priced at $299) to the top of the line V8650 with a whoppin' 2GB of memory ($2799, ouch!), all of which you can learn more about within the press release.
Further to that, 3Dprofessor have already managed to dish up a review of the new FireGL V3600 offering.
