At SIGGRAPH in San Diego, AMD has introduced five new ATI FireGL workstation graphics cards. These new R600-based FireGL products support Microsoft DirectX 10.0, OpenGL 2.1, up to 320 stream processors, AutoDetect functionality, and a 2GB frame-buffer. In 3D workstation benchmarks the new FireGL graphics cards are over 300% faster than their previous generation GPUs. These new AMD/ATI FireGL cards include the V3600, V5600, V7600, V8600, and the V8650. The FireGL V3600 will sell for $299 USD while the flagship V8650 will cost $2,799 USD. Availability is expected next month and for these new FireGL graphics cards you can expect Linux support to come with the new fglrx driver.
