If somehow you were able to choke up the FirePro V8800 and its 2GB of graphics buffer — traveling across an autobahn-wide 147.2GBps interface, here’s the card for you. ATI has just announced the V9800, which doubles its predecessor’s memory allowance to a mighty 4GB of GDDR5, but otherwise looks an almost identical beast. It maintains the 1,600 stream processor count of the V8800 and makes some small advances in performance and power efficiency, but on the whole it’s the same card, just strapped up with more buffer muscle. We shouldn’t neglect the new array of six mini DisplayPorts — the retail package will include six DVI adapters, just alittle bit overkill but oh well. Well, at $2,499, the V9800 is a whole thousand dollars pricier than the V8800, just sayin, I wouldn’t do it..
