Original Press Release:
FlexTop Workstation Makes ATI FireGL(TM) V7200 High-End Graphics Accelerator Portable
For Immediate Release: October 5, 2006, NextComputing, creators of the first FlexTop computer, announced the availability of ATI's FireGL(TM) V5200 and FireGL(TM) V7200 graphics boards on its NextDimension, renowned as a portable graphics engineering super-computer. The NextDimension incorporates the most advanced Single- or Dual-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors, with open standards architecture and advanced storage capabilities, to optimize graphical rendering when utilizing any PCI-Express card.
ATI's FireGL(TM) V7200 with Avivo(TM) Technology is a high-end graphics accelerator, competitively priced against other high-performance graphics cards. The FireGL(TM) V7200 delivers industry-leading features and performance for the most demanding workstation users running OpenGL and DirectX based applications. Featuring full Shader Model 3.0 support and a scalable ultra-threaded architecture with true 128-bit floating point precision, 8 parallel geometry engines, 16 pixel shader processors, and an ultra efficient 512-bit ring bus memory controller, ATI FireGL(TM) V7200 is ideal for animators, engineers and medical professionals, and others requiring high performance 3D visualization capabilities.
ATI's FireGL(TM) V5200 with Avivo(TM) Technology is a mid-range graphics accelerator which provides many of the features of higher-end cards, such as two Dual-link outputs, full Shader Model 3.0 support and a scalable ultra-threaded architecture with true 128-bit floating point precision. Its performance is impressive for a moderately priced card. Regardless of the cost of the chosen graphics card, ATI prides itself on its dedicated workstation technical support team. Direct contact with support personnel is always available.
All ATI FireGL(TM) workstation graphics accelerators are tested and certified with all major CAD and DCC software. NextComputing's NextDimension, with 64-bit support for multiple OSs, and the power to run industry-leading OpenGL and DirectX -compliant animation and digital creation applications, is the only portable option for complex 3D animation and CAD environments.
This most recent announcement by NextComputing further substantiates the company's success at providing the most advanced graphics technology. The flexibility of NextComputing's FlexTop enables maximum graphics performance across the board, from mid-range cards to ultra high-end graphics accelerators.
"We are always striving to maintain our reputation as a leading innovator, not only with the uniqueness of our small form-factor workstations, but also with our ability to accommodate the widest range of COTS accessories. Open Standards architecture allows us to do this for end users requiring various levels of graphics performance. ATI's line of FireGL products is another way end users can match their graphics needs, price point, and expansion requirements with the power of a system to drive those needs." states Bob Labadini, President and CTO of NextComputing.
The small, briefcase-sized FlexTop allows users requiring the highest performance graphics to replace desktops with a smaller form-factor, as well as to pack up the entire system and bring their work anywhere they need to have access.
About NextComputing: NextComputing is known in the HPC community as an innovator for its engineering design talents, bringing to market the smallest, portable form factors with features capable of the most intensive graphics applications.
