ATI FirePro™ Certified for TopSolid CAD/CAM

Missler Software and AMD have announced that the ATI FirePro™ workstation graphics cards have been thoroughly tested and certified to ensure optimized performance and compatibility with the TopSolid CAD/CAM software range.


The two companies have combined efforts for the new development to ensure superior levels of real-time visualisation for TopSolid customers.

The development teams from AMD and from Missler Software have worked closely together to ensure compatibility between TopSolid v6, TopSolid 7 and the ATI FirePro™ product family. The two teams have been able to thoroughly test and certify the ATI FirePro™ graphics cards with the TopSolid integrated CAD/CAM suite. The results confirm the recent certification of the ATI FirePro™ products; from the entry-level ATI FirePro™ V3800 to the high-end FirePro™ V8800 by the Missler Software development team in Toulouse, France.

“Many of our customers have been requesting that we certify their favourite TopSolid solution to run smoothly with ATI FirePro™ graphics cards,” explains Dominique Laffret, Vice President of Strategic Relationships at Missler Software. “Thanks to the recent certification we offer increased choice and flexibility for our customers to work with the ATI FirePro™ product family which is recognised as being a leading graphics solution on the market. Thanks to the excellent collaboration with AMD’s technical team we have been able to run a comprehensive certification process over the past few months and are happy to indicate that the ATI FirePro™ line of graphics cards delivers a stable and high performance graphics environment for TopSolid.”

According to Antoine Reymond, Global Alliance Manager for AMD: “We are delighted that TopSolid and the ATI FirePro™ graphics accelerators are now compatible. It is logical for two worldwide players to cooperate in the common interests of our customers. Missler Software is a CAD/CAM leader on the global market and we have been very happy to collaborate closely with the French developer.”
