AMD launched AMD FirePro S10000 server graphics card

Posted by virtualization.info Staff   |   Tuesday, November 13th, 2012   |  

Yesterday, November 12, AMD announced AMD FirePro™ S10000, a server graphics card intended to be the most powerful and would be used for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications.

The AMD FirePro S10000 is supposed to be the first ultra high-end card and would bring high performance computing and visualization to a variety of disciplines. With dual GPUs at work, it would be possible to experience high throughput, low latency transfers allowing for quick compute of complex calculations requiring high accuracy.

Its performance makes the server graphics card compatible for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and workstation graphics deployments as it would be possible to process a large amount of information rapidly.

Among the features of AMD FirePro S10000 Server Graphics:
  • Compute Performance: The AMD FirePro S10000 is the most powerful dual-GPU server graphics card ever created, delivering up to 1.3 times the single precision and up to 7.8 times peak double-precision floating-point performance of the competition’s comparable dual-GPU product. It also boasts an unprecedented 1.48 TFLOPS of peak double-precision floating-point performance3;
  • Increased Performance-Per-Watt: The AMD FirePro S10000 delivers the highest peak double-precision performance-per-watt – 3.94 gigaFLOPS – up to 4.7 times more than the competition’s comparable dual-GPU product3;
  • High Memory Bandwidth: Equipped with a 6GB GDDR5 frame buffer and a 384-bit interface, the AMD FirePro S10000 delivers up to 1.5 times the memory bandwidth of the comparable competing dual-GPU solution4;
  • DirectGMA Support: This feature removes CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks, optimizing communication between both GPUs. This also enables P2P data transfers between devices on the bus and the GPU, completely bypassing any need to traverse the host’s main memory, utilize the CPU, or incur additional redundant transfers over PCI Express®, resulting in high throughput low-latency transfers which allow for quick compute of complex calculations requiring high accuracy;
  • OpenCL™ Support: OpenCL has become the compute programming language of choice among developers looking to take full advantage of the combined parallel processing capabilities of the FirePro S10000. This has accelerated computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), and media and entertainment (M&E) software, changing the way professionals work thanks to performance and functionality improvements
David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD, declares:

The demands placed on servers by compute and graphics-intensive workloads continues to grow exponentially as professionals work with larger data sets to design and engineer new products and services, the AMD FirePro S10000, equipped with our Graphics Core Next Architecture, enables server graphics to play a dual role in providing both compute and graphics horsepower simultaneously. This is executed without compromising performance for users while helping reduce the total cost of ownership for IT managers.
