    Logo ABITAccording to Digitimes, ABIT should soon make another attempt at the 3D market by offering cards equipped with Nvidia GPUs.

    The Taiwanese company will have its work cut out for it because it will have to compete with a number of its compatriots not the least of which include Elitegroup, Foxconn, ASUSTek and MSI. However, because the market is profitable, the creator of the BH6 has decided to try again. One too many times, some will say.

    The first attempt, which we have to admit was more or less forced, goes back ten years ago with Intel’s i740. There was a grand scale announcement at the Computex 99 and then the ensuing commercialization. The adventure with Nvidia stopped after the release of the GeForce FX and continued with a partnership with ATI but the rather lukewarm reception of the R600 seemed to have put an end to it.

    While Vijay Sharma and Victor Peng, Director of Product Marketing and Vice President Silicon Engineering with the Graphics Products Group, respectively, have just left the company, today AMD has unveiled the FireGL V7700 presented as the first 3D professional card with DisplayPort support.


    Equipped with an RV670, it completes the current line while it stands apart with its PCI-Express 2.0 support. The card has 512 MB of GDDR4 interfaced with a bus with a width of 256 bits and set at around 1200 MHz. On the other hand, the GPU frequency was not specified.

    Sold for $1099 in the US, it should be available starting in April.
