Speedier f/x in the card for Fusio-io

Fusion ioFX ups memory and processing speed

Fusio-io has released the Fusion ioFX, a card that dramatically increases memory and processing speed for visual effects artists, even while working with high-resolution stereoscopic content.

Each Fusion ioFX card provides 420 GB of what the company describes as a “new memory tier past RAM but before you hit storage.”

The memory tier enables digital artists to view changes in real time, work with high-resolution files and is designed to help avoid production bottlenecks that have created production issues for both freelancers and large companies.

“This card makes it possible for a freelance artist to work on IMAX movies at home,” said Vincent Brisebois, Fusion-io’s performance computing industry manager. “It gives you unprecedented ability to work with large files in a way that’s both quick and easy.”

Brisebois, an experienced visual effects artist, believed both freelancers and large vfx houses had a need for this kind of product, which would make it possible to easily ramp up a workstation for high performance.

“You can outfit a computer with two of these cards and have a workstation that won’t inhibit your abilities to be creative so you won’t spend all your time working around the technology to do your work,” said Brisebois.

The Fusion ioFX will be available from Fusion-io and select resellers in late spring for a list price of $2,495, which includes a one-year support contract.
