    Low Cost AMD FirePro V3900 offers productivty and performance for business class PC's

    AMD's latest professional product is the FirePro V3900, a graphics add-in board aimed at the professional workstation and productivity market with a high value price. Using the Northern Islands series Turks core first seen in the Radeon HD 6600 and 6500 series, the V3900 features 1GB of RAM and is a half-height, single slot card with a small active cooler.

    AMD Eyefinity is supported using the DisplayPort 1.2 output which can 'daisy-chain' up to 5 independent displays. Unlike consumer based products, the FirePro V3900 supports 30-bit deep color (10-bit per channel) output.

    AMD today launched the AMD FirePro(TM) V3900, which enables best-in-class workstation experiences at an entry-level price point. By leveraging AMD's latest graphics features, including AMD Eyefinity technology, the AMD FirePro(TM) V3900 provides up to 95% better application performance than the competition.(1) The AMD FirePro V3900 will be available in select workstation systems today and will be sold for USD$119 MSRP at select online resellers.
    "The AMD FirePro(TM) V3900 is the most powerful entry-level professional graphics card on the market today," says Sandeep Gupte, general manager of Professional Graphics, AMD.(1) "Armed with advanced multi-display capability of AMD Eyefinity technology, extensive certifications for professional applications and blazing fast performance, it offers best-in-class value for our technical and business customers."(2)

    "HP makes workstations that meet the needs of the world's most demanding customers and feature the latest technologies," says Jeff Wood, vice president of Worldwide Marketing, Commercial Solutions Business Unit, HP. "The AMD FirePro(TM) V3900, in combination with our HP Z Workstations, offers robust performance for professional workstation applications, providing HP customers with a seamless user experience at an affordable price."

    "The AMD FirePro(TM) V3900 certainly delivers the performance, reliability and compatibility that CAD professionals are looking for when undertaking the latest design projects," said Nick Iwaskow, Senior Alliances & Partnership Manager, DS SolidWorks Corp. "Coupled with the best 3D CAD solutions from Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. it can enhance the design process for professionals everywhere."

    The AMD FirePro(TM) V3900 has received certification for a variety of applications including AutoCAD(R), UGS NX, PTC Creo(TM), SolidWorks(R) and Autodesk(R) 3Ds Max(R).

    There are NO daisy-chainable monitors OR mst hubs.

    There is no way to leverage DP output.

    NO WAY.

    I was searching for a day since I wanted to get a laptop with DP 1.2 (radeon 64xx mobile for example), BUT what good does that do if I cannot get 2 or 3 monitors on that DP output?

    Marketing bollocks. Even wikipedia states there are hubs to be had while in fact there are none.

    The only product that actually leverages daisy-chaining is Thunderbolt, which is INCOMPATIBLE with DP (no matter the same port).

    This is imho even bigger fail than Nvidia's 3d. That at least worked on one display and one set of hardware. 6xxx cards on the other hand are available for 1+ year and there is NO hardware to leverage DP 1.2. NONE. Massive fail. And frustration.


      I've seen MST hubs, held them, watched them be used. Maybe they're not available for sale yet, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

      I can totally see why you would think it's AMD responsibility to make DP 1.2 monitors. That's their core business, right?
