AMD FireGL accelerators and MachStudio Pro change the nature of 3D workflows on the desktop

A few weeks ago, AMD announced a strategic partnership with StudioGPU to develop MachStudio Pro. Using the GPU, MachStudio Pro makes possible real-time 3D workflows for lighting and FX. I recently had a chance to play with the software and have posted initial impressions. Check out the test render of a scene of 2.2 million polygons, rendered on a FireGL V8650 at 1024 X 576. The 99 frames rendered in under 45 sec. and include mutliple light sources, soft shadows, gels, and ambient occlusion.
