Show your CAD who’s boss for just $899 - the new FirePro V7750 w/ 1GB frame buffer

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 28, 2009

FirePro V7750OK - I stole the title directly from Engadget because it sums up the new ATI announcement for the FirePro V7750 pretty succinctly.  The specs:  320 stream processing units, OpenGL 3 and Shader Model 4.1 support, a unified video decoder for accelerated H.264, AVC, VC-1 and MPEG-2 video formats, 1GB of GDDR3 frame-buffer memory, a 30-bit display pipeline with two DisplayPort outputs and and one Dual Link DVI port, which together generate a multi-monitor desktop of more than 5000 pixels wide.  Since it is the pro-line of ATI cards, they have been certified for performance on all the big CAD/DCC application. And the “showstopper” news:  the price at $899.

Everyone needs more realism and everyone is making bigger and more complex models. So the high performance/great price deal is pretty obvious. What I also find pretty interesting is the support for Stream Computing on the card, and that accelerated video encoding (and I assume decoding). This card aims at DCC and visualization pros as much as at the CAD community. Pretty much a no-brainer if you are looking for top performance and don’t want to stress out over price.
