ATI FirePro V8800 3D: First DirectX 11 Graphics Card

By Posted 10 Apr 2010, 08:22

AMD were the first to blink and offer the first graphics card to support DirectX 11, the card in question is the ATI FirePro V8800. This GPU also comes with ATI’s Eyefinity multi-display technology and is the company’s most powerful card yet.

Having the best comes at a price, that price is £999 plus VAT, but you do get a lot of performance for your money. How does 2.6 teraflops of raw computing power and 147.2 GB/s of memory bandwidth sound? This is twice as much as the previous version, and it needs to be to offer 3D graphics.

The ATI FirePro V8800 is just the first card of many from AMD, but Digital Arts Staff reports that the GPU maker is not offering up any details just yet. This card is not for everyone, but if you want to link up to four displays to one card, then this is the one for you. You had better get saving.
