AMD FirePro V9800 Has Eyefinity 6, Costs $3,499

Professional parts cost professional money, and AMD today rolled out the ATI FirePro V9800 that comes with a professional $3,499 price tag.

The FirePro V9800 isn't all that different from the FirePro V8800 it usurps – it has the same clock speed, 1,600 stream processors and 147.2GB/s of memory bandwidth.

It's a little more power friendly at 199W, but the really big draw for those who need a lot of displays is that the FirePro V9800 supports Eyefinity 6 to drive a half dozen monitors. The memory doubled to 4GB of GDDR5 is always a nice touch.

The FirePro V8800 was used to help complete 500 final shots in the currently-in-cinemas movie Machete. We don't doubt that Troublemaker Studios will be getting a few FirePro V9800 for the next film.
