Diamond Multimedia to bring high power card to market

Diamond sparkles with 2GB graphics card

Diamond Multimedia, the firm behind FireGL and Monster3D in the late ‘90s, has announced that it is planning to fully re-enter the PC market with the introduction of its ATI R600-based VFX 2000 featuring 2GB of GDDR4 memory.

The company is positioning the card as the spiritual successor to the FireGL brand, which is now co-incidentally owned by ATI, and is aiming it at ‘workstation-class’ computers.

It is expected that the card will be launched sometime later this month although no price has been announced. Speculation suggests that the price tag will be around the £1300-£1500 mark, based upon the market it is targeting, as well as Diamond’s previous pricing structure.
