AVR Depot & Multi Image Group drives Christie Digital MicroTiles using AMD FirePro W9000

Posted by Tony DeYoung on June 30, 2014

AVR Depot & Multi Image Group was at InfoComm 2014 showing a number of high resolution display wall solutions using AMD FirePro technology.  A single AMD FirePro W9000 drove a 3’ by 12’  Christie Digital MicroTile 3-tile display. The HD touch screen display at the front of the booth was also output from a FirePro card.  The two systems were networked together running Ventuz 4 software.

iWall uses 12 4K display for interactive video wall driven by 2 FirePro W9000s + S400 sync module

Posted by Tony DeYoung on June 25, 2014

At this year’s InfoComm 2014, the MultiTaction iWall commanded center stage.  The iWall is a 16’ by 9’ interactive video wall solution consisting of 12 4K displays driven by 2 AMD FirePro W9000 GPU and the FirePro S400 Sync module.  This video from InfoComm shows Hannu Anttila,  MultiTaction VP, showing it in action.

Enriched Reality Air Hockey using MultiTaction, Red Bull and AMD FirePro W7000

Posted by Tony DeYoung on June 24, 2014

At InfoComm 2014, MultiTaction was showing a 55”  Enriched Reality air hockey table driven by an AMD FirePro W7000. Touch was disabled and the only things that the game reacted to were air hockey paddles and Red Bull cans which acted as bumpers. Enriched Reality technology tracks the exact size of an object and can distinguish basic geometric shapes such as circles, rectangles or cans of Red Bull.

Check out the video to see it in action.

Building Power Efficient Compute Clusters with AMD FirePro S-Series at Int’l Supercomputing 2014

Posted by Tony DeYoung on June 24, 2014

At the International Supercomputing Conference 2014, Niles Burbank, AMD’s senior manager for server GPU products presented “Building Power Efficient Compute Clusters with AMD FirePro S-Series Graphics”. The presentation included information about how the advances in the software ecosystem, particularly those associated with OpenCL 1.2, make GPUs increasingly attractive for running HPC workloads in a scalable and efficient manner.

Niles discussed AMD’s upcoming additions to the FirePro S-Series family of server graphics cards, in conjunction with OpenCL, for the creation of powerful and efficient compute clusters offering multiple TFLOPS of single and double precision floating point performance to enable a supercomputer which would rank competitively in the Green 500. This session offered practical recommendations on deploying FirePro S-Series products in an HPC environment.

AMD FirePro W8100 combines 3D graphics with compute in one card

Posted by Tony DeYoung on June 23, 2014

AMD has unveiled the FirePro W8100 8GB GPU for high-end CAD/CAM/CAE.

image

The W8100 can compute a complex ray trace rendering or FEA simulation on one screen and still be fully responsive as you manipulate your 3D CAD model on the same display or across up to three other 4k display. The card is priced at $2,495. Full specs in the W8100 Datasheet PDF.

Along with the W9100, the W8100 will also be a part of AMD’s Ultra Workstation initiative.

Benchmarks in graphics and compute compared to the similarly priced Nvidia Quadro K5000 are below.
