FirePro V8700 OpenGL accelerator to boost performance by 40%

AMD’s new flagship FirePro V870 workstation graphics card promises to be about 40% faster than the previously fastest FireGL card. It runs 800 stream processors, comes with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory and two Display Port and one dual link DVI interface. It supports OpenGL 2.1 (3.0 early next year) including VBOs (GPU buffer that works with frequently used geometry in memory, instead of pushing the data back to the CPU to calculate changes), as well as DirectX 10.1.
