ATI's new FireGL V7350 with 1GB of memory
ATI introduces the FireGL V7350, the industry's first 1GB workstation card

ATI has announced what it says is the industry's first workstation graphics card with 1GB of GDDR3 memory. The card, called the FireGL V7350, is based on ATI's X1800 family of GPUs. The specialized drivers on the FireGL enable professional-oriented features which are unavailable in ATI's consumer level CATALYST drivers. ATI is on top of its professional certifications as well as OS support and includes full support for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and Linux platforms.

For those professionals who do not require the 1GB of memory that comes with the FireGL V7350, ATI has another card called the FireGL V7300, which is identical in specifications to the FireGL V7350 except it comes with 512MB of memory.

From the press release:

Featuring full Shader Model 3.0 support and a scalable ultra-threaded architecture with true 128-bit floating point precision, 8 parallel geometry engines, 16 pixel shader processors, and an ultra efficient 512-bit ring bus memory controller, ATI FireGL V7350 provides the graphics horsepower for today’s professional applications and tomorrow’s technology innovations.

Quick specifications:
  • Scalable ultra-threaded architecture with 8 Parallel Geometry Engines and 16 Pixel Shader Processors
  • 1.2 billion triangles per second
  • 9.6 giga-pixels per second

ATI says that the new FireGL V7300 family of workstation cards are already beginning to ship to distributors and system integrators. Those who wish to purchase the cards will be looking at $1999 USD for the FireGL V7350 and $1599 for the FireGL V7300. More information on both cards can be found here.

Update 03/22/06: This card is based on Radeon X1800, not X1900 as we originally wrote.
