Introducing the new AMD FirePro™ V4900 professional
graphics – an entry level professional graphics solution
using AMD’s newest generation of graphics architecture.
Offering strong performance and outstanding reliability,
the AMD FirePro™ V4900 delivers features that help
boost the productivity of professionals working with
moderately complex models.
The AMD FirePro™ V4900 is powered by many exciting
new features and technologies. Under the hood is a new
generation GPU, backed by 480 stream processors
capable of 0.768 Tflops of Single Precision compute
power and 1GB of blazing-fast GDDR5 memory.
AMD’s ultra-parallel processing architecture helps
maximize throughput by dynamically directing graphics
horsepower where it’s needed, allowing you to create
at the speed of thought.
With AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology support for
up to three independent and simultaneous displays from
one graphics card,1 the AMD FirePro™ V4900 will help
boost your productivity without the need for confusing
and expensive multi-GPU setups. The AMD FirePro™
V4900 has two DisplayPort outputs and one dual-link
DVI output built in, and with the use of the included
active adapter, multiple DVI powered displays are also
supported out of the box. Furthermore, AMD Eyefinity
multi-display technology is not limited by the display
manufacturer. It is flexibly configured regardless of the
brand of monitor you’re using, allowing you to mix and
match your display setup in the simplest of ways. With
three monitors to spread your work across, you can be
more productive than ever.
Why stop at three monitors? With DisplayPort 1.2, the
AMD FirePro™ V4900 card can support up to a total of
six simultaneous and independent displays.4 The output
functionalities of the AMD FirePro™ V4900 offer an
unprecedented digital signage solution at a significantly
lower cost of other multi-monitor setups.6
For users who require small form factors yet still desire
high performance, the AMD FirePro™ V4900 delivers
workstation quality performance that professionals have
come to expect in a small and sensible half-length
graphic card design. Plus, at a maximum operating
power usage of less than 75W, the AMD FirePro™
V4900 maintains incredible efficiency to help you
manage your power budget.
AMD FirePro™ professional graphics are thoroughly
tested and certified with major Computer Aided Design
(CAD) and Digital Content Creation (DCC) applications,
ensuring a level of reliability not found in consumer
graphics products.
Innovation and Reliability from a
Technology Leader
AMD FirePro™ professional graphics have been
engineered to deliver innovation and reliability for a
wide range of professional operating environments,
including Windows® 7, Windows® XP, Windows
Vista® and Linux®. The unified driver, which supports
all AMD FirePro™ workstation graphics products,
helps reduce the total cost of ownership by
simplifying installation, deployment and
In addition, AMD FirePro™ graphics products
incorporate AMD’s unique AutoDetect technology.
