Dual Tahiti FirePro


AMD has launched its latest, and according to AMD, the industry's most powerful server graphics card aimed at high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications.

The FirePro S10000 is based on two Tahiti GPUs, features a total of 3584 cores and a 825MHz GPU clock, slightly lower when compared to the previously released FirePro S9000 based on a single Tahiti GPU. The two Tahiti GPUs provide up to 5.91 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating-point performance and up to 1.48 TFLOPS of peak dual-precision floating-point performance.

As was the case with the FirePro S9000, the new FirePro S10000 also features 6GB of GDDR5 memory paired with a 384-bit memory interface, but this time around it has a memory bandwidth of 480GB/s. It uses PCI-Express 3.0 interface and comes with four DisplayPort and single DVI output.

Although it provides 1.48 TFLOPS of dual-precision and 5.91 TFLOPS of single-precision floating-point performance, the FirePro S10000 has a TDP set at incredible 375W. The new FirePro S10000 graphics card is cooled by triple-fan dual-slot cooler.

According to AMD, the new FirePro S10000 can brag to be the most powerful dual-GPU server graphics card ever created with increased performance-per-Watt. It also comes with DirectGMA support that removes CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks by optimizing communication between both GPUs and has full OpenCL support.

The new FirePro S10000 will be available as a retail and OEM part, but the price has not been announced yet.
