ATI FirePro M7740 Inside Dell Precision M6400

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 9 comments

Workstation graphics on the go.

While most professional 3D work is done on desktops, there are times when it has to be taken on the road. For those times, AMD and Dell have equipped the Dell Precision M6400 workstation laptop with the ATI FirePro M7740 graphics accelerator.

With the FirePro M7740, the Precision M6400 supports Microsoft Direct X- or OpenGL-based applications and qualifies for over 90 certifications confirmed by application providers such as Autodesk and Dassault Systèmes.

"AMD knows that flawless execution and best-in-class performance is a priority for professionals who rely on workstations for their livelihood," said Janet Matsuda, senior director, AMD Professional Graphics. "The Dell Precision M6400 utilizes the ATI FirePro M7740’s powerful GPU and 1GB frame buffer, to help accelerate software applications and improve productivity, while giving professionals the assurance of superior reliability that comes with having certified drivers and professional-grade ATI FirePro hardware."

ATI FirePro M7740 3D accelerators are available this month with the Dell Precision M6400 workstations.

    ^+1

    Anyway I guess it's good for auto cad designers and the like who need to showcase something they have done without lugging around their workstation or worrying about the capabilities of machines at their destination.

    I also seriously doubt that the battery life with a graphics card like this will last long.

    Although it doesn't really look like a graphics card for mobile with it's PCIE bus (not mini PCIE), and without cooling fan...

    Its just a demo photo. Look a little closer and notice the 6 holes in the pcb for cooling installation. Use your brain man, there isn't even a heat spreader on the chip for crying out loud.

    Cool.

    Too bad though, dude, it's a Dell (and thus I refuse to touch it).
