Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), a provider of computing solutions, has introduced a 3D workstation graphics card with DisplayPort support.

The ATI FireGL V7700 professional graphics accelerator provides faster rendering speed, 3D performance and color fidelity for medical imaging professionals, computer-aided design and digital content creation, Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company.

ATI FireGL V7700 delivers the image quality needed to create photorealistic visualizations of real-world objects and environments, AMD said.

“The ATI FireGL family of workstation graphics accelerators is designed to deliver visible advantages and performance leadership at every price point, from entry level to ultra-high end,” said Janet Matsuda, senior director of professional graphics at AMD.

Albert Xthona, product manager for digital mammography at Barco, said: “The balanced power of the ATI FireGL product line has the accuracy and speed needed for medical imaging applications like mammography screening.”

“For example, mammography viewing uses 10-bit precision to help deliver the most information to the eye of the radiologist, and increasingly other medical applications will rely on 10-bit grey and 30-bit color rendering,” Xthona said.
