[HH] ATI Introduces $3500 FirePro V9800 Graphics Card.

The FirePro V9800 offers similar features found in the V8800 we reviewed in April : Cypress GPU, 1600 stream processors, 147.2 GB/s memory bandwidth. The difference here is a larger, 4GB memory buffer, six DisplayPort connections, and a higher price tag. At $3,499, it costs over twice as much as the V8800, targeting workstation users that demand the highest level of performance possible with no compromises.

Too bad it doesn't come in a P90 case, that would add AT LEAST $500 in value.
And for those wondering, no, it cannot run Crysis, it's not made for that.

Are these cards also bad at folding? I would think so since they are made for rendering.

I've also never understood how they can make these cost so much, do they just have a premium like intel extreme CPU's?

My step brother works for corporate disney and they currently have 300 work stations at pixar with these in them.

So, lots of people use them.

But I didn't ask how many people used them? I am sure they are well used. 0_o

honestly they should be on par if not faster then fermi on CPU SP/DP calculations.

im not too sure what process folding takes, but if it is based on the above the cypress chips should be faster and give more PPD. But for some reason this just isn't the case.... i've heard it was becuase of the way the folding clients are set up.

It's the support you get, if I recall correctly.

I heard they cost extra because they are able to use certain software, which gaming graphics cards can't, even though they can be nearly as powerful.

Why would it not be able to run Crysis?

These cards are not that different from desktop cards. They usually have more memory, special firmware, and better support.

Enterprise-level equipment costs a lot.
1TB of hard drive space from IBM? $10K-20K per year.
A dual hexcore server with 128GB? $13000.
Basic DB2 server? $150K
Sun four quad-core server? $250K


However, the cost of downtime or taking longer is MUCH more. It is cheaper for a company to pay ten times the consumer price than risk millions in case of failure or downtime due to compatability.

Ssssshhh, do not wake up the people who ask if it can run Crysis.
I'm quite tired of seeing that in every single hardware thread.
This will deter them....
