Supported by a massive 4GB memory capacity and 1600 stream processors, the ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card also offers unparalleled productivity innovation with ATI Eyefinity support for up to six independent displays from a single graphics card, ensuring that your creativity is never inhibited by a lack of work space
The new ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card truly showcases the advanced performance and high-end features available to users of FirePro professional graphics products in this generation.
The ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card offers unparalleled performance for the price.
ATI Eyefinity Technology
With six Mini DisplayPort outputs, the ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card allows for seamless, plug-and-play multi-monitor use – the first professional graphics solution to offer six independent monitor outputs from a single graphics card.
Ideal for users who want to maximize their work environment for increased productivity, ATI Eyefinity technology can provide an expansive desktop resolution of up to 5760 x 2160 pixels to enable more efficient multitasking and improve visualization applications.
4GB GDDR5 Memory
The ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card features the largest shipping frame buffer available from AMD in any consumer or professional graphics product and comes with 4GB of GDDR5 memory that offers industry leading performance and unmatched visual quality, which will be particularly valuable for customers in industries with large volume data sets, such as medical and oil & gas, and in animation and compositing.
The ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card also features significant performance increases over the previous generation of FirePro products, including 1.25x increased compute stream processor performance, and an increase of 2.27x in single- and double-precision performance.
The ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card is optimized for stream calculations with full support for OpenCL, DirectCompute, and DirectX 11.
Real World Performance
The ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card can result in improved performance in 3D rendering software, animation and compositing and the realization of large-scale video walls and high-definition multi-screen operation.
Powered by 1,600 stream processors, the industry’s highest number, the new ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card is ideal for computationally or visually intensive applications.
3D Stereo and Synchronization
Just in line the other products in the AMD’s ATI FirePro family graphics card, the new ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Card also offers comprehensive support for stereo 3D capability, supporting active shutter glasses via the on-board 3-pin connector, as well as passive and auto-stereoscopic displays and projectors.
In addition, with support for the ATI FirePro S400 synchronization module, up to four ATI FirePro V9800 Graphics Cards can be synchronized (genlock, framelock), delivering up to 24 synchronized outputs from a single computer – a breakthrough in display density for demanding powerwall and video wall applications.
“With today’s announcement of the ATI FirePro V9800, we are introducing the ultimate workstation graphics solution for the professional graphics industry. It offers users with demanding DCC and visualization requirements six monitor support on one GPU and a superior price-to-performance ratio,” said Janet Matsuda, senior director, Professional Graphics, AMD. “The ATI FirePro V9800 will be the professional graphics solution of choice for users requiring exceptional performance and flexibility.”
