CGW reviews ATI FireGL Visualization Series OpenGL API accelerators

Summary: “Overall, the FireGL cards from ATI represent a strong lineup for those who need professional features and performance at modest prices. The cards are well-built with stable OpenGL drivers, take full advantage of the speed offered by PCI Express, and are a good choice for anyone involved in 3D animation, compositing, or design work. The cards that stood out from the pack were the V5000 and V7100. The V5000 is notable because it is the smallest of the cards, supports Dual Link displays, is the most power efficient, and has the best price-performance ratio of the line. I chose the V7100 simply because it is currently ATIs top-of-the-line card and is quite fast.”
