    New ATI FirePro™ Graphics Accelerator Boosts Application Performance up to 200%

    Two (2) nice new ATI professional graphic cards being added to the fray, and with a new name I might add.

    AMD (NYSE: AMD) today raised the bar for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC) application performance with the announcement of two new professional graphics accelerators – ATI FirePro™ V5700 and ATI FirePro™ V3700. As a part of that announcement, AMD also introduced a new brand for the company’s professional graphics accelerators, ATI FirePro™, reflecting AMD’s continuing and evolving commitment to the professional graphics market.

    “Following the ATI acquisition, AMD increased its investment in the professional graphics business and now delivers professional graphics accelerators that perform better than the competition at every price point.1 The new ATI FirePro brand communicates this focus on performance and features that matter to engineers and designers”, said Janet Matsuda, senior director, AMD Professional Graphics. “ATI has been known for delivering value-priced solutions for CAD and DCC professionals. The product reviews over the past year have validated the fact that ATI offers outstanding application performance as well.”

    According to the Worldwide CAD Market Report 2007-08 published by Jon Peddie Research, in 2007 the installed base of CAD users grew to 5.31 million worldwide – a 20 percent increase from 2006. The firm’s analysts also predict the CAD market will continue growth through 2008, with revenues projected to grow 15 percent to $6,025.37 million and reach $8.1 billion by 2012.

    “Historically, 3D technologies were expensive and used only by senior designers within a large manufacturer or architectural firm. As technologies advanced and prices dropped, 3D graphics for entry level CAD designers was no longer a pipe dream but a necessity,” said Jon Peddie, president and founder of Jon Peddie Research. “Today’s entry- and mid-level CAD users need to create and render more complex designs and models, and graphics accelerators from AMD can deliver the performance and reliability professionals need at a price where 3D becomes the rule, not the exception.”
