Working with professional 3D graphics programs requires a while different set of features than its gaming counterpart but that’s not to say you can’t fill in downtime with some monster fragging.

The AMD FirePro V4800 and FirePro V7800 are designed to help you pump out wireframe models with ease. Phoronix takes a look at their performance:

While the FirePro V8800 is able to drive four independent displays, the FirePro V7800 can only power up to three displays using ATI Eyefinity technology. The FirePro V7800 is a single-slot graphics card and has a rated power consumption of less than 150 Watts. Like the V8800, the V7800 boasts 2GB of GDDR5 video memory, albeit it is clocked less at 1.00GHz but to provide a peak memory bandwidth of 128GB/s. The FirePro V7800 is based upon the Cypress Pro GPU with the consumer equivalent being the ATI Radeon HD 5850. The core clock for the Cypress Pro running in the V7800 is 700MHz. This graphics card boasts 1440 stream processors and Framelock/Genlock support.

Some spiffy specs if you’re in the market for an upgrade which you can totally convince your boss will improve your productivity.
