With up to 2.62 TFLOPS of peak double precision performance, the AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU is the world’s first and fastest 32GB single-GPU server card for DGEMM heavy double-precision workloads with support for OpenCL 2.0.
Dell PowerEdge servers deliver unmatched performance with greater flexibility, including Flash storage and up to 15 percent greater memory bandwidth. Starting today, Dell now offers AMD FirePro GPUs on two new rack mount and one new tower server.
AMD recently presented their data center roadmap for 2015-2016 and one stand out was the plans for for a “high-performance server APU”. AMD already has a strong presence in the high performance server market with the FirePro S-series, in particular the S9150 for HPC and VDI.
At their financial analyst day presentation, AMD outline a roadmap to develop a high-performance server APU that will offer multi-teraflops performance closer to the performance of the FirePro S-series GPUs, but all on a single CPU/GPU chip.

AMD FirePro W9100 Wins Best Display Solution
Quote: “The market for professional graphics card used to be the sole privilege of Nvidia cards with excellent performance and CUDA. But with its new architecture, AMD seems to want to change that. With increased performance, support GPU Computing and aggressive prices, AMD becomes a must!”
The new AMD FirePro WX100 series offer new levels of performance make these cards a prime choice for any graphics or compute-intense application, at a cost-efficient price.
At Digital Signage Expo in March, MultiTaction (booth 9-F137) will unveil their AMD FirePro-driven 12 display curved iWall installation with a total curvature of 90 degrees. This is the world’s first curved interactive multitouch commercial display wall.
iWalls are modular, customizable interactive display systems supporting an unlimited number of concurrent users, curvatures of up to 360 degrees and widths to up to 96 feet. It simultaneously detects an unlimited number of fingers, hands, IR pens and real life objects. It’s more than just a touch display; it is an experience. Of course, driving all of the visuals and the seamless multiscreen display are AMD FirePro graphics.
Panasonic Toughbook is legendary for its ruggedness and is widely known for its reliability and durability, even in extreme operating conditions. The inclusion of AMD FirePro M5100 in the CF-54 series opens up new opportunities for architects, project managers and engineers who demand the ultimate combination of durability, reliability and workstation-class performance with certified application support for work in a semi-harsh indoor or outdoor environment.
Newegg TV interviews Jon Clark about the AMD FirePro WX100 series targeted across the entire line of professional markets (CAD, Design, Media & Entertainment, Medical, Digital Signage, Financial, GPU Compute).
It’s a worthwhile watch even if you know something about the FirePro line. Jon shows and describe each card and the market it applies to.
Across the entire FirePro WX100 line from the 26 watt W2100 to the top of the line W9100:
