AMD FirePro V8800 Review - Evergreen and Cypress Go Pro
The AMD FirePro V8800 Graphics Card
The design of the new FirePro V8800 card will also look familiar to users that have seen the Radeon HD 5000 series, though it has a couple of interesting quirks.
The stylish red and black design returns with the V8800 though the "Batmobile" look has been lessened ever so slightly.
The rear of the card is covered in a protective plate that also acts like a small heatsink for the rear PCB.
The V8800 supports CrossFire X configurations as you can see here.
Much like the Radeon HD 5870 that it was modeled after, the FirePro V8800 requires two 6-pin PCIe power connections.
The output panel includes four standard DisplayPort connections as well as the stereoscopic 3D sync connection that professional users access rather than utilizing things like 3D Vision.
In the box with the card buyers will find a pair of DisplayPort to DVI cables, though they are only passive as thus will NOT support 2560x1600 resolutions. If you want to take advantage of those types of resolutions the professional user will either have to have a DP-ready monitor or an active DP-to-DL DVI adapter.
