AMD FirePro S10000 dual-GPU card brings 1.48 TFLOPS double-precision compute and 3D to HPC servers

Posted by Tony DeYoung on November 12, 2012

AMD announced the FirePro S10000 dual-GPU server graphics card, designed for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications. (pdf spec sheet)

Key Features

  • Compute Performance: 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 performance
  • 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 product
  • 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 solution
  • 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 improvement.
