ATI Introduces FireGL V7350, the Workstation Industry's First One Gigabyte Graphics Accelerator
ATI captures the performance crown with an ultra high-end 3D card designed for CAD, DCC and imaging professionals who work with massive datasets
MARKHAM, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2006-- ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX:ATY)(NASDAQ:ATYT) today announced the industry's first one gigabyte (1GB) workstation graphics accelerator, the ATI FireGL V7350, and also a 512 megabyte configuration, the FireGL V7300. Featuring an extremely powerful ultra-threaded parallel processing GPU, and ATI's industry leading Avivo video and display technology, these new ultra high-end graphics cards further extend ATI's workstation graphics line, delivering better performance, more advanced features and higher image quality.
ATI's Avivo video and display platform brings an increased level of visual fidelity to the professional graphics market with features such as automatic gain control, gamma correction and increased color bit depth. With a 10-bit per RGB component graphics pipeline, instead of the standard 8-bit, the FireGL's color palette increases to over a billion colors. The result is a finer level of detail throughout the visible spectrum, enhancing details in shadows and making highlights come to life. In addition, high-end displays supporting 16-bit per RGB color component can be fully utilized by the FireGL V7350 and FireGL V7300. Two dual-link connectors also give end users the ability to drive multiple ultra-high resolution displays, yielding a massive desktop display over 5,000 pixels wide.
