AMD launched the FirePro S10000, a server class dual-GPU graphics card, on November 12. With 5.91 TFLOPS of peak single-precision and 1.48 TFLOPS of double-precision floating-point calculations, it is the fastest GPU in its class, and is ideal for HPC workloads where stability and power matter. At the time of launch, it offered 1.3 times the performance of the closest competing product in SP calculations and was 7.8 times faster for DP workloads.
The FirePro S10000 has two Tahiti LE GPUs, with 1792 shaders, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs per GPU, operating at 825 MHz. Each GPU has 3 GB GDDR5 memory with ECC on a 384-bit bus, with 240 GB/s bandwidth. The S10000 card supports DirectX 11.1, shader model 5, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL 1.2.
The reference board is two slots wide, and consumes a maximum of 375 Watts. For display outputs, there is one standard DVI port and four Mini DisplayPort ports, that can drive up to 5 displays. The maximum resolution with DisplayPort 1.2 is 4096 x 2160, or 2560 x 1600 with DP 1.1.
The FirePro S10000 graphics card is available from resellers who stock server parts.
