ATI tied up with Solidworks in order to introduce this product named as ATI FireGL V5000. This is a new workstation graphics accelerator, mainly a board positioned right in the middle of the company’s Visualization series and was intended for midrange CAD applications. This device has a whopping cost of five to six hundred dollars. Compared with other graphic accelerators this provides smaller pixel pipelines only eight pipelines for that matter. As a standard, this includes the same number of geometry engines as those graphics accelerators, six versus the two provided in the ATI FireGL V3100 and ATI FireGL V3200. This device is crafted with a PCI Express x16 lane architecture that utilizes a single chip that enable delivers full bandwidth in both upstream and downstream directions. As a result this doubles the performance skills of older products. This is also equipped with two DVI-I connectors and 128MB of GDDR3 unified graphics memory.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This allows the board to control two analog or digital monitors that reaches up to 2048x1536 pixel resolution in 32-bit color. Still, it expanded its capabilities by adding up a dual link support for ultrahigh resolution display. ATI FireGL V5000 is the first and only device that can cater nine megapixel displays with 3840 by 2400 resolution. Want more? ATI FireGL V5000 also contains a stereoscopic 3D connector with quad buffered support. As such this speeds up 3D workstation applications operating on OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX 9.0. This and its many features is guaranteed and certified by as CATIA, SolidWorks, Alias Studio Tools, and others. Even though expensive this out beats any other inexpensive PCI Express ATI boards by adding exclusive features and installing a 128-bit memory interface, yielding a memory bandwidth of 13.6 GB/second. The card’s graphic’s performance can be measured at six hundred thirty seven million vertices per second and 3.4 billion pixels per second. As such it is quite a big, hard thought process to consider in buying this product. This device makes up for your money, thus, a good investment. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ATI FireGL V5000 errors before installing any driver updates.
