Designed for Big Data Applications, AMD Announces Industry's First "Supercomputing" Server Graphics Card with 12GB Memory

AMD FirePro S10000

New AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition graphics card is designed for heterogeneous compute applications built on OpenCL and delivers peak double precision performance

AMD announced the new AMD FirePro™ S10000 12GB Edition graphics card, designed for big data high-performance computing (HPC) workloads for single precision and double precision performance. With full support for PCI Express® 3.0 and optimized for use with the OpenCL™ compute programming language, the AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition GPU features ECC memory plus DirectGMA support allowing developers working with large models and assemblies to take advantage of the massively parallel processing capabilities of AMD GPUs based on the latest AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition GPU is slated for availability in Spring 2014.

AMD - FirePro S10000

The AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition graphics card is a compelling solution for a variety of scenarios:

  • Compute/Visualization Server: finance, oil exploration, aeronautics and automotive, design and engineering, geophysics, life sciences, medicine and defense
     
  • Double precision: genetic sequencing, computational fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, numeral analytics, reservoir simulation, automated reasoning and weather forecasting
     
  • Single precision: seismic processing, molecular dynamics, satellite imaging, explicit crash test simulation, video enhancement, signal processing, video transcoding, digital rendering and medical imaging
     
  • Ultra High-end Workstation (Requiring GPU compute and 3D graphics performance): Oil and gas, computer aided engineering

"Our compute application customers asked for a solution that offers increased memory to support larger data sets as they create new products and services," said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD. "In response, we're announcing the AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition graphics card to meet that additional memory demand with support for OpenCL and high-end compute and graphics technologies."

The current AMD FirePro™ S10000 graphics solution with 6GB of GDDR5 memory has received great acclaim. For example, the University of Frankfurt's Institution of Advanced Studies use of the card with the SANAM supercomputer ranks in the top five on the Green500™ List as one of the most powerful and energy-efficient supercomputers powered by graphics processors.

The AMD FirePro™ S10000 with 6GB of memory is currently available for purchase while the AMD FirePro S10000 12GB Edition graphics card is slated for availability in Spring 2014.
