Incredible performance scalability and stunning visual quality
Introducing the ATI FirePro™ V8800 workstations graphics card from AMD. This high-end
workstation solution features ATI Eyefinity technology1, 2GB of ultra high speed GDDR5
memory and more than double the computational power of previous-generation products.2
With its large frame buffer and a full 30-bit display pipeline3, the ATI FirePro™ V8800 is ideally
suited for users who work with large data sets or shader-intensive applications and who
demand high-end computational power and the superior visual flexibility.

Based on a new generation GPU with 1600 stream processors, the ATI FirePro™ V8800
ultra parallel processing architecture helps maximize throughput by automatically directing
graphics horsepower where it’s needed. Intelligent management of computational resources
enables enhanced utilization of the GPU to enable real-time rendering of extremely complex
models and scenes.
The ATI FirePro™ V8800 features four DisplayPort outputs driven by ATI Eyefinity technology,
offering an unprecedented multitude of and flexibility for display configurations for the
professional user.4 These include, from a single graphics card: presenting a multi-monitor
desktop of over 10,000 pixels wide5; driving a 4K projector; delivering combinations of portrait
and landscape orientations; driving virtual prototyping and video wall scenarios with multiple
projectors. With ATI FirePro™ graphics native multi-card support, users can see more and
do more using up to eight displays being driven by two ATI FirePro™ V8800 cards in the
same workstation.4,6
ATI FirePro™ professional graphics cards are thoroughly tested and certified with many major
Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC) applications, ensuring a
level of reliability and compatibility not found in consumer graphics products.
Innovation and Reliability from a Technology Leader
Besides the new and ground breaking ATI Eyefinity technology1, ATI FirePro™ cards have been
engineered to deliver innovation and reliability for a wide range of professional operating
environments, including Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows® XP, Windows Vista® and Linux®.
The unified driver, which supports all ATI FirePro™ products, helps reduce the total cost of
ownership by simplifying installation, deployment and maintenance.
In addition, ATI FirePro™ products incorporate a unique AutoDetect technology. As users
open new 3D applications, or move between them, ATI FirePro™ graphics driver settings are
automatically configured for optimized performance of supported applications, no matter
what the user’s workflow demands.

A TI Eyefinity technology can support multiple displays using a single enabled ATI FirePro™ professional
graphics card; the number of supported displays varies by card model. Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows
Vista®, or Linux® is required in order to support more than 2 displays. Depending on the card model, native
DisplayPort™ connectors and/or certified DisplayPort™ active or passive adapters to convert your monitor’s
native input to your card’s DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s) may be required. Some card
models come with adapters. Cables not included. See for details.
