AMD Introduces FirePro S10000 Professional Graphics Card


AMD today launched the AMD FirePro S10000, the company's most powerful server graphics card, designed for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications.

The AMD FirePro S10000 is the first professional-grade card to exceed one teraFLOPS (TFLOPS) of double-precision floating-point performance. It is also the first high-end card that brings a 5.91 TFLOPS of peak single-precision and 1.48 TFLOPS of double-precision floating-point calculations.

"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," said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD.



The S10000 is a dual-GPU Tahiti card, packing a pair of 825MHz Tahiti GPUs on a single board, with each GPU wired up to 3GB of GDDR5 operating at 5GHz with a 384-bit interface. The launch of the S10000 makes it the second dual-GPU server card to be released this year, joining NVIDIA's K10.

AMD's DirectGMA support 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, 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.

Of course, the S10000 also supports OpenCL, the compute programming language of choice among developers looking to take full advantage of the combined parallel processing capabilities of the FirePro S10000.

With the new card AMD is trying to hold off NVIDIA's Tesla and VGX products, but the issue they face with the S10000 is one of design and power consumption. Traditional high-end server cards like the Nvidia Tesla K10 and FirePro S9000 are in the 225W-250W TDP range; meanwhile the S10000 significantly overshoots that, coming in at 375W.

AMD's new server GPU will also face the competition of Nvidia's new K20, GPU, which has 5GB of memory and delivers 1.17 teraflops of double-precision performance and 3.52 teraflops of single-precision performance. Nvidia is also offering a faster K20X model, which has 6GB of memory and delivers 1.31 teraflops of double-precision performance. The K20X is three times faster than its predecessor, the Tesla M2090, which was released in the middle of last year.

AMD will be launching the S10000 at $3599, $1100 over the S9000. AMD has already started shipping the card to key strategic partners.
