FirePro 5800 and 3800 Graphics Cards

From a physical perspective, there isn't much to write home about for the new cards, but our readers need to see the goods, so here we go.

The FirePro V5800 is a pretty standard looking single slot card.

The connection configuration provides that much needed dual-link DVI connection to avoid REQUIRING people to use a DP-to-DVI adapter like the V8800 (which has been a pain for us).

The V5800 still supports CrossFire for multi-GPU acceleration.

This is important here - with a maximum power consumption of 75 watts or so the V5800 does not require any kind of external power.

The V3800 is a tiny card that appears to more at home in a $500 HP computer than in a high-end graphics workstation.  Looks can be deceiving though so we'll see what kind of numbers it can put up.

Obviously the V3800 doesn't require any external power either - it has a max power consumption of about 45 watts.

Now, let's take a look at the competition we are going to throw at these cards and get started on the benchmarks!

I like reading about the AMD FirePro V5800 and V3800 reviews. I think those who want to get these graphic cards may need to read the reviews first before deciding whether to buy them. There are so many reviews of web sites and IT products. I think there are also reviews on Groupon and its clones.
