TAIPEI, Taiwan - Sapphire today introduced the newest generation of professional graphics cards -- AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900 -- more than doubling performance of competitive offerings in key professional market applications. Created for the design, engineering, financial, and medical fields, the new graphics cards offer AMD PowerTune and GeometryBoost technologies in addition to industry-recognized AMD Eyefinity multi-display support to enhance workflow and application performance.
AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology makes it possible to support up to six displays in one large workspace, allowing faster access to applications and enhanced productivity. With the introduction of the AMD FirePro V7900, which supports up to four displays, and AMD FirePro V5900 which supports up to three displays, engineers and designers have an expansive desktop space from which to see more data, open more applications and view more information at the same time; improving workflow and enabling increased productivity. Also, AMD Eyefinity technology is easy to deploy and offers the lowest total solution cost, for example, in three-display configurations.
New for this generation of AMD FirePro products is AMD PowerTune technology. This state of the art power management technology provides direct control over GPU power usage. Applications enjoy ultimate performance with dynamic clock optimization, while minimizing workstation energy usage .
Also new for this generation is GeometryBoost technology -- a unique hardware capability that processes two primitives per clock cycle. The result is incredibly fast geometry performance, ensuring smooth handling of complex models for CAD and DCC users. For example, CAD engineers can handle large models to efficiently complete tasks in real-world applications. The AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900 also feature DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 support as well as massive 2GB GDDR5 frame buffer.
AMD FirePro V7900 professional graphics cards feature four outputs from one card for a low total solution cost, enabling the ability to drive four independent displays from a single slot card. Additionally, this graphics card includes the ability to support framelock and genlock via the AMD FirePro S400 synchronization module as well as 3D stereo with the included expansion bracket.
AMD FirePro V5900 professional graphics cards deliver a mid-range high performance solution without exceeding 75W power draw with power saving techniques for reduced wattage. Coupled with AMD Eyefinity technology, the AMD FirePro V5900 supports three display outputs.
AMD FirePro products are tested on an on-going basis in real-world scenarios to help ensure compatibility and stability for certification with many leading software applications. AMD FirePro V5900 and AMD FirePro V7900 have received certification for a variety of Autodesk 2012 applications in addition to Ansys 13.0, Bentley Systems Microstation V8i, CEI EnSight 9.2.2b, CEI EnSight CFD 3.5, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp.’s SolidWorks 2010 and 2011 3D CAD software, ESRI ArcGIS 10, ESRI ArcGIS 9.3.1, and Side Effects Software Houdini 11.
