Hitting the wire just minutes ago was an official announcement from ATI of a completely new line of FireGL graphics cards designed for professional users. These low-to-high end models range from 128MB cards to solutions with 1024MB of video memory. In addition, all of these new FireGL products are based upon ATI's new architecture and they also bring fourth professional support for Avivo. The new solutions launched today from ATI include the FireGL V3300, V3400, V5200, and V7200. Some of the new features incorporated in these cards are a 10-bit display pipeline capable of rendering scenes with over a billion colors, High dynamic range, and dual-link output. This launch taking place today is a hard launch and the solutions should be appearing at stores today as well as inside workstations. Announced already by ATI's Investor Relations is word that Hewlett-Packard will be using the new FireGL products in their latest desk and mobile side workstations. The ATI Linux 8.24.8 display drivers launched earlier this month (with X1000 support) are not expected to be compatible with the new FireGL products. However, we do anticipate that supportive Linux drivers for the FireGL line-up will arrive very shortly. The ATI press release can be found here.
