AMD’s new flagship workstation graphics card, called the FirePro V8700, is promised to about 40% faster than the company’s previously fastest card. The new model runs all 800 stream processors, comes with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory and a total bandwidth of 108.8 GB/s, two Displayport and one dual link DVI interface and support for DirectX 10.1. MSRP is set at $1499.
The FirePro V3750 runs only 320 stream processors and integrates only 256 MB of GDDR3 for a bandwidth of 22.4 GB/s, but can be yours for substantially less money - $199.
AMD said both the V8700 and V3750 will begin shipping in the fourth quarter.
