MrB is still being judged by the masses

Default FireGL X1 @ Siggraph

ExtremeTech has posted a picture of the FireGL X1 rendering Lord of the Ring scenes in real time. Furthermore they have a picture of a 4 GPU board using Radeon 8500 chips made by CAE. A similar board using 9700 chip will be introduce. Check out their coverage.
ATI introduced a new workstation card based on its latest Radeon 9700 GPU, called the FireGL X1. The board is essentially identical to upcoming consumer-focused Radeon 9700-based offerings, although the memory load-out will be 256MB of DDR memory. This part is due out later this fall. Although ATI didn't discuss pricing, the larger amount of memory plus the usual markup seen for workstation 3D products will likely have this offering priced somewhere in the $500-700 range.

In one more blurring of the line between 3D CG movie effects and real-time 3D, ATI was running a scene from the recent film, Lord of the Rings, in real time. Recall that at this year's GDC conference, nVidia was able to render an only slightly-downgraded scene from Final Fantasy in real-time.
