    Default AMD FirePro V8800 2GB

    Phoronix: AMD FirePro V8800 2GB

    Last week AMD launched the FirePro V8800, which is their first workstation graphics card derived from an ATI Evergreen graphics processor and designed to be a step-up from the previously reviewed FirePro V8700 and FirePro V8750. The AMD FirePro V8800 features 2GB of GDDR5 video memory with 147.2 GB/s of bandwidth, 1600 Stream processors, four DisplayPort outputs, ATI Eyefinity support, DirectX 11.0 / OpenGL 4.0 support, OpenCL 1.0 capable, a full 30-bit display pipeline, Multi-View display support, and much. We have now carried out our Linux testing of this new ultra high-end workstation graphics card and have the results to share this morning.

    Actually, if you're looking for the best price/performance ratio, you'll probably win out with a sub-$50 card.

    4xHDMI is the key feature here....

    The open source KMS driver should support eyefinity in 2.6.34.

    nice thank you very much...

    i think the open-source driver will beat the fglrx very fast!

    tests shows me that the opensource driver can beat the fglrx!

    "Once Warsow was running with the Catalyst driver, the R300g Mesa 7.9-devel Gallium3D driver was actually faster than Ubuntu 8.04 with the fglrx 8.47 driver!"
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...allium3d&num=2

    "Finally, with our World of Padman benchmark we see the open-source Linux graphics stack in Ubuntu 10.04 outperforming the four-year-old proprietary ATI Linux driver. "

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...graphics&num=3

    i think in the end the fglrx will lose

    i know no one how believes in the power of cloused source on an long therm period.

    for exampel Blender and the new Opteron 6000
    Blender is 200% faster on Linux than Windows.

    in that point opensource beat cloused source

    why use C4D or catia ?
    i think on an long period of time Blender will beat this shit out of business. ok c4d first and then catia and thats only because catia have another point of use than blender and C4D.

    Blender pulls FireGL cards out of business to because they wana fokus on opensource drivers.

    @ Michael Larabel

    Why is there no competitive analysis in the article?

    I don't think the V8800 can be declared the "performance champion", or that we can accurately know the price to performance benefit of the V8800 without comparing it to a NVIDIA card in the same price segment.

    ok ill try to aswer this to you.

    there no benchmarks!

    nvidia fermi and amd's R800 are OpenGL4+ directX11 grafic cards!

    unigine haven for exampel are only openGL3.2! 3.2 ! 3.2! you can't check a ogl4.0 grafic card by only checking openGL 3.2!!!!

    the 3D-cat stuff the same storry most of the professional benchmarks only use openGL2.1 or mybe OGL3...

    there is no real benchmark for an REAL battle fermi VS r800!


    why sould michael waste his time on checking openGL3.2 on OpenGL4 cards?

    he only wait for real programms and real benchmarks with real DX11 apps on wine and real OpenGL4 apps on linux!

    then be sure michael will benchmark all this suff in a round!

    Err no, it's a matter of having no access to the NVIDIA hardware. Though other tests (albeit under Windows) have shown the V8800 having the upperhand over NVIDIA.

    That is a fair answer. Thank you for the reply.

    if you get the hardware do you test openGL4+ stuff with the newest shit or only the oldest 2.1 stuff?
