The ranking here is broadly in line with the previous benchmarks, with the V taking the number one spot, the V coming in second, and the V taking a decisive third position. AMD has quite the powerful line-up of professional graphics cards, from high-end monsters all the way down to its entry-level contenders. Free volumetric system generates good-looking animatable clouds in real time inside Unreal Engine. No more [Alt]-tabbing, and no more stacking windows so that only one or two are visible at the same time! The benchmark scores above are self-explanatory: The current line-up of FirePros offers excellent performance and a set of features that makes the cards stand out from their competitors.

DisplayPort quickly becoming the connector of choice for professional graphics cards for a number of good reasons, including physically smaller connectors, better signal integrity and the ability to go beyond the current resolutions for future super-high resolution displays.

Its MB of RAM also limits it when using digital sculpting tools as even light-to-moderate scenes can easily exceed MB, and once that happens, performance degrades significantly.

The latter viewpoint is evident in the fact that GPU-renderers are currently mainly used for previs and animatic work, while the final-quality rendering is relinquished to the software renderers.

Having said that, I have had some requests to include Cinebench tests in my various reviews — so congratulations, Cinebench: The most appealing aspect of the V is the ability to drive four displays from a single card, with little to no slowdown when running multiple 3D apps across the four monitors. While there c4800 to be several players in the latter category, including 3Dlabs, Matrox and ELSA, the industry is now dominated by two companies: Unlike traditional DCC apps, Mudbox works with very high poly counts average scenes can run anywhere from 8 million polygons up to the highest I have ever seen, million.


Also of note is the fact that when running a three-monitor set-up, the V slows rgaphics noticeably when running more than one 3D application: First off, we have the mighty V Instead it uses technology based on advanced DirectX-based pixel shaders to achieve its final render output, and it does it in near real time.

These not only increase performance, but also offer excellent stability and predictability when compared to their desktop counterparts, particularly when running CAD packages.

Some have embraced this technology as the future of rendering, while others simply do not feel that GPU renderers cannot live up to their CPU-based counterparts in terms of output quality.

The benchmark scores above are self-explanatory: These days, most pro cards share hardware with their consumer counterparts, although the chips are usually hand-picked from the highest-quality parts of a production run. It works solely off DirectX shaders.

Well, the more RAM on the card, the more intensive the computations that can be performed. Those interested in this beast of a machine can find a review here.

The current line-up of FirePros offers excellent performance and a set of features that makes the cards stand out from their competitors.

Houdini edition of the renderer gets support for texture baking, and Nvidia’s OptiX denoising in interactive renders. This is where the professional graphics cards set themselves apart from their consumer counterparts. I think 3v V is the card that will appeal to most DCC professionals, including modelers, texture artists and animators.


It is aimed at increasing productivity by enabling a single workstation to drive a cirepro number of displays. Again, the V leads the V, although the difference in performance is relatively small.

FirePro 3D V4800

The 33d is a step up from the V, but is still considered an entry-level card. The system runs Windows 7 bit and testing was performed with several combinations of the following displays: But at the moment, this is where Nvidia has the jump on AMD.

Once again, we have the V and V in the lead, tying for first place. Unless the tasks the GPU is trying to perform fit entirely within the on-board memory, data must be swapped between the RAM on the GPU and that of the workstation itself, making computation much slower.

The V, V and V all ship with just one adapter, and the V does not ship with any. This is not the fault of the engineers who write these benchmarks: Free volumetric grahics generates good-looking animatable clouds in real time inside Unreal Engine.

When I polled other users, the general consensus was that while these applications will work on consumer graphics accelerators, performance with those non-professional cards is sub-par, and viewport glitches and anomalies are quite common: Fjrepro world of 3D GPUs has, since its inception, consisted of two main categories: I was very impressed with the V
