Powering displays on up to four monitors from a single card, increasing the power over other graphics solutions in their price range, the ATI FirePro line of graphics cards provide lots of value.

Five new models have been added to the newly minted FirePro line, which revolutionized the graphics card market. The FirePro V8800 has been lauded as the most professional card ever.

The new additions bring the brand to the mainstream by offering a variety of different performance levels and price points.

"AMD’s new ATI FirePro workstation graphics cards are the world’s first workstation class graphics cards to support up to four monitors on a single card," said AMD's senior director Janet Matsuda. "Our new ATI FirePro family delivers new value at every price point."

At the highest end, the FirePro V7800 has 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and the power to drive up to three displays of up to 30" at one time. At the low end, the V4800 has 1 GB of GDD5 memory and still has a performance level of 1.25 times ATI's previous generation of graphics cards.

Each card supports DirectX11, OpenGL 4.0, and ATI's most advanced Eyefinity technology. They are all available from as early as today at a variety of e-tailers.
