Isn't AMD blatently seeking attention (and dumb investors) by these 'firsts' ? The first video-card with a display port is from one of NVidia's board vendors. Earlier they put up this 'world's first 65W quad-core desktop CPU' but Intel Clovertown is the world's first 50W quad which came way before that AMD...just that it happened to be a Xeon (Server/WS).

Good luck with that card, AMD.

They don't really need luck. FireGL's sell well to their intended demographic.

It's not about FireGL's sales. It's about AMD being in the news...all of which is to lure investment. I know FireGL sell well in their segment. Regarding that card, it's just wishing luck. :)

wonder how easily you can mod a 3870 to be the firegl

Contact Scrizz , he seems to have a board idea about Radeon -> FireGL softmods. This looks a replica of the HD3870, same RV670 GPU...it would be just a matter of a BIOS flash.

most firegl's don't even need a flash you can softmod the drivers and get them to work i wonder if thats the case here

AMD said:
AutoDetect: Based on a new generation GPU with 320 unified shader units, the ATI FireGL V7700 maximizes throughput by automatically directing graphics horsepower where it’s needed most.
Doesn't ATI use the term 'Stream Processors' ? :confused:

It's part of the original article on AMD's website too?

Not really... it's marketing, and ultimately still technically true. If I'm not mistaken they claimed a desktop quad, and workstation card, and Intel's xeon, and Palit's 9600(?) are a workstation chip and lower end consumer card respectively. Anal retentive yes, but still true none the less. But more importantly it's direct from AMD -- you have to expect them to build this stuff up, any other company would and does do the same (Nv inventing the GPU anyone?).

Is it decietful though? Well, would buyers of a workstation card with display port be intested in buying a Palit 9600? If not then shouldn't that mean that AMD is likely to sell a bunch of these to the companies that would have an immediate interest in having displayport outputs? So how are they duping (you said luring like it was a bad thing) investors? I'd imagine with most investors the actual achievement of doing it first means jack, what's important is who's first to market and able to best capatilize. Palit may have been the first graphics card with a displayport but it means moot if the demand and support for displayport isn't there in the consumer market. Well, not exactly moot -- they can claim the first.

I didn't call any of that lies. Not even that AMD is cheating on its investors. While AMD's first WS graphics with displayport and first desktop 65W quad are technically (and factually) correct, their announcements seem to be merely instruments of AMD seeking investment, which I don't think is wrong and that any company in its position would do that.

Hmm
Meh, just another overpriced "pro" tool!
You could always install hacked FireGL drivers on a 3870...
Just get RivaTuner and read a couple of posts on their forum.

There is the misconception that nVidia makes better cards for OpenGL and pro applications. From personal experience with Maya I can tell you that 8 series cards have some nagging issues with selection in Maya :(.
Also, it seems that the latest cards from AMD (pro and non-pro) actually behave better in Maya than nVidia's cards (I couldn't tell, but benchmarks suggest so)

As many of you know, I have an aversion to "spin". I agree with others here, "AMD first blah blah" is doing nothing more than discredit the ATI brand. I really am sorry ATI fell into the hands of AMD. I have seen NO benefit as a result of the acquistion, only brand dilution.
