At the NAB AMD Firepro booth (SL10405), LumaForge will be demonstrating an ‘ULTRA RAWpower’ finishing workstation that integrates Blackmagic Design’s 4K video input and output breakout boxes, DaVinci Resolve color correction system, low latency Fusion-io ioFX memory tier and the AMD FirePro W9100 for the delivery and processing of multiple streams of 4K Ultra HD video.  The new workstation is easily able to handle the 2400 MB/s data throughput required for processing 4K 10bit DPX files at 23.98 frames per second. 

CEO of LumaForge, Neil Smith:  “At NAB 2014, the M&E industry will take the 4K wave to the next level of adoption and deployment. To meet the demanding requirements of 4K acquisition, processing and delivery, LumaForge will demonstrate the ‘ULTRA RAWpower’ digital creation and finishing workstation. At the core of this high-performance 4K video engine is the OpenCL-enabled FirePro W9100. The advanced AMD FirePro technology was the obvious choice when we were designing the best-in-breed 4K DaVinci Resolve finishing workstation.”

AMD FirePro W9100 - 16GB GDDR5 memory, 2TFLOPS DP, 5 TFLOPS compute,  6 4k displays

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 26, 2014

Today AMD announced the AMD FirePro flagship workstation graphics card, the FirePro W9100.
I’m going to post some of the slide graphics.  They tell most of the story. Suffice it to say, that this is the highest performing card in the industry and will completely change the way media professionals are able to work. It’s a new GPU for a new era of content creation & productivity.

You can view the full webcast at http://www.media-server.com/m/go/AMDFirePro.

AMD also announced AMD FirePro Ultra Workstation program for system integrators - AMD’s new branded high-end workstation from 1GPU to 4GPU.  BoxxTech, Supermicro, Silverdraft and others have already signed up to deliver solutions.

Streaming Crysis 3 game play in real-time using RapidFire and AMD FirePro technology

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 21, 2014

Two more videos from GDC 2014, both showing live streaming of Crysis 3 using RapidFire Technology - a combination of hardware and software that enables cloud gaming partners to use an open API that simplifies the manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth.

Crysis 3 streamed to a laptop in San Francisco from a server in France

The delay was about 300 milliseconds round trip. The implementation by Eureva uses AMD RapidFire and FirePro graphics

Crysis 3 streamed to a consumer laptop using AMD RapidFire + AMD Radeon Sky 900

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 19, 2014

This video capture from GDC 2014 shows Crysis 3 being streamed and played, with almost not latency to a consumer laptop using AMD RapidFire + AMD Radeon Sky 900.

Radeon Sky Series graphics cards can support up to six HD (720p) game streams each, where each of the six game streams supports up to 30 frames per second. Integral to this is the AMD RapidFire technology -  a combination of hardware and software that enables cloud gaming partners to use an open API that simplifies the manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth.

RapidFire and FirePro technology power low latency cloud gaming at GDC 2014

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 19, 2014

Today at GDC,  Allen Bourgoyne gave a talk on AMD RapidFire technology along with Eureva showing demos of Crysis 3 streamed over the internet and Leap Computing’s game engine using RapidFire and OpenCL.  Here are a few pics from that talk.

Pay special attention to the Leap Computing slides - i.e.  2mbsp is all that is required for 1080p gaming over the internet using RapidFire!

An FYI: RapidFire is a combination of hardware and software that enables cloud gaming partners to benefit from an open API that simplifies the manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth resulting in a compelling and responsive gaming experience from any device over the internet.
