The world of 3D GPUs has, since its inception, consisted of two main categories: While ELSA ATI FireGL used to be several players in the latter category, including 3Dlabs, Matrox and ELSA, the industry is now dominated by two companies: It is targeted at graphics professionals who rely not only on speed, but rock-solid stability and support.

These days, most pro cards share hardware with their consumer counterparts, although the chips are usually hand-picked from the highest-quality parts of a production run. Also, they carry a lot more RAM than their consumer counterparts — which is actually very important, as I will discuss later on in this article. However, the biggest difference between professional and consumer cards is their driver set and software support. While consumer hardware is tuned more towards fill rate and shader calculations, pro cards are tuned for 3D operations such as geometry transformations and vertex matrices, as ELSA ATI FireGL as better performance under GPGPU ELSA ATI FireGL such as OpenCL and DirectCompute. In addition, the manufacturers offer much more extensive customer support for their professional products than the equivalent consumer cards.

These not only increase performance, but also offer excellent stability and predictability when compared to their desktop counterparts, particularly when running CAD packages.


When I polled other users, the general consensus was that while these applications will work on consumer graphics accelerators, performance with those non-professional cards is sub-par, and viewport glitches and anomalies are quite common: V The V ELSA ATI FireGL a step up from the V, but is still considered an entry-level card. With a slightly more advanced derivative of the Redwood GPU found on the V, the computing ELSA ATI FireGL of the V is very similar to that of the V, sporting the same Stream processors of the V This gives the V a tremendous advantage in memory bandwidth over the V The V sports similar specs to the V Where the V differs is its core hardware.


Having a single-slot ELSA ATI FireGL is beneficial for those who wish to stack multiple cards to drive many displays, or for more GPGPU compute power. It is also beneficial for those who use systems built in smaller cases. Here is a quick run-down of its specs: Specs for the V are as follows: At time of writing, I do not have a V to test, but I will return to it in a separate article. Display connectors DisplayPort quickly becoming the connector of choice for professional graphics cards for a number of good reasons, including physically smaller connectors, better signal integrity and the ability to go beyond the current resolutions for future super-high resolution displays.

These work just fine, but you may need more of them than are provided with the cards as standard. The V, V and V all ship with just one adapter, and the V does not ship with any.

These are powered units that draw power from the host computer via a USB connection, ELSA ATI FireGL not only are they quite expensive compared to the single-link adapters, but require a free USB port for each adapter used. Eyefinity technology As I mentioned before, each card has the ability to drive multiple monitors: It is aimed at increasing productivity by enabling a single workstation to drive a large number of displays.

So do DCC users really need this many monitors? You plug them all into your V or V and… hey, check it out: No more [Alt]-tabbing, and no more stacking windows so that only one or two are visible at the same time! The potential of this technology is exciting, and we are just starting to see applications that make use of it. ELSA ATI FireGL

This is where the professional graphics cards set themselves apart from their consumer counterparts. Remember that I said earlier that pro cards have more on-board RAM?

Well, the more RAM ELSA ATI FireGL the card, the more intensive the computations that can be performed. Unless the tasks the GPU is trying to perform fit entirely within the on-board memory, data must be swapped between the RAM on the GPU and that of the workstation itself, making computation much slower.

For example, in the current crop of GPU-accelerated raytracers, the entire 3D scene must fit within the memory ELSA ATI FireGL the graphics card in order for the card to be used to help with the rendering process.
