ATI FirePro S400
Released July, 2009
The Pros:Makes connecting multiple video cards easy. Provides a big performance boost, can notice the difference. Framelock is dead-on, can use multiple screens and have them all in sync perfectly.
The Cons:Need to pay special attention to the motherboard's layout to make sure this will set up properly.
The ATI FirePro S400 isn't a stand-alone video card, but rather a module that helps video cards work together. High demand applications can be aided by attaching multiple video cards together in a computer via the S400, boosting performance.
