The Diamond VFX 2000 is based on AMD?s ATI R600 GPU, but the card?s PCB has been modified from the standard HD 2900 XT reference design to support the workstation-class features inherent to the FireGL line of professional graphics cards. Due to issues stemming from the RIAA?s lawsuit against Diamond and their MP3 Rio a few years, Diamond can?t call these cards FireGLs, but they are fundamentally the same. Diamond Multimedia were actually the creators of the FireGL brand, but the company had to liquidate assets to pay their legal fees back then and unfortunately they are no longer able to use the brand.
