AMD today announced the arrival of the AMD FirePro R5000 remote
graphics card, a manageable solution designed to power remote
3D-graphics workflows over IP networks.
The AMD FirePro R5000 combines AMD's Graphics Core Next (GCN)
Architecture with Teradici's PCoIP technology, and promises to
deliver a 3D experience with low latency transmission -- designed
for mid-range multimonitor endpoints such as those used by CAD,
medical imaging and financial services professionals. The AMD
FirePro R5000 also complements IT security protocols by
safeguarding corporate IP, since critical information never leaves
the data center.
The new card is rated at 150W and comes with a variable speed fan
to reduce cooling costs and noise. It can
accommodate flexible seating arrangements or provide employees with
zero clients and also be deployed in desktop workstations, rack and
blade servers, and PCIe expansion chassis.
AMD PowerTune and AMD ZeroCore Power intelligent power management
and monitoring tools enable IT managers to effectively track and
contain power usage.
The next generation Teradici TERA2240 host processor is able to
transmit up to 300 megapixels per second and drive up to four
displays per end user, with refresh rates up to 60 frames per
second giving what Teradici describes as "the best remote user
Backed by a three-year warranty and planned three-year minimum
lifecycle, the AMD FirePro R5000 will be available from AMD's
select retailers and channel partners.
