Diamond is no stranger
to packin' an awful lot of RAM onto graphics cards, and apparently, the forthcoming VFX 2000 Series Professional Workstation GPU
will keep the legacy alive. According to Hot Hardware
, Diamond is readying a 2GB (of GDDR4
memory, no less) professional card based on the R600
as the HD 2900 XT), and reportedly, "the card's PCB has been modified from the standard HD 2900 XT
reference design to support the workstation-class features inherent to the FireGL line of professional graphics cards." Still, there's no word yet on what frequencies the GPU and RAM will hum along at, but word on the street has this beast launching "in the coming weeks." Click on for another glimpse.
