Evans & Sutherland chooses ATI
High-end professional visualization system manufacturer Evans & Sutherland has chosen the ATI Radeon 8500 chip for its next-gen products. The official announcement came yesterday, but it seems this relationship has been in the works for a while now. A demonstration of the first of E&S systems built around the Radeon 8500 will be shown this month at I/ITSEC 2001.
The Ensemble and simFUSION product families will be the lines to receive the Radeon, and these solutions will also come in multi-chip builds. These systems should prove to be a powerful solution for the markets E&S caters to. They should also prove to be interesting competitors to Quantum 3D's 3dfx- and NVIDIA-based professional graphic solutions.
