Nashua, N.H. - NextComputing, creators of the first FlexTop computer, has announced the availability of ATI's FireGL V5200 and FireGL V7200 graphics boards on its NextDimension portable graphics engineering computer.
The NextDimension incorporates Single- or Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors, with open standards architecture and advanced storage capabilities, to optimize graphical rendering when utilizing any COTS PCIe card.
ATI's FireGL V7200 with Avivo Technology is a high-end graphics accelerator 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 a 512-bit ring bus memory controller, ATI FireGL V7200 is well suited to animators, engineers, and others requiring high-performance 3D visualization capabilities.
ATI's FireGL V5200 with Avivo Technology is a mid-range graphics accelerator which provides two Dual link outputs, full Shader Model 3.0 support, and a scalable ultra-threaded architecture with true 128-bit floating point precision. ATI FireGL workstation graphics accelerators are tested and certified with major CAD and DCC applications.
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 a portable option for complex DCC and CAD/CAM applications. 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.
