 27.08.2012   AMD lancia le video card FirePro S9000 6GB e FirePro S7000 4GB

AMD ha annunciato le video card per server e workstation siglate FirePro S9000 e FirePro S7000. Entrambe le soluzioni sono basate su una gpu a 28nm di nuova generazione, progettata in base all'architettura Graphics Core Next (GCN), già molto nota nel mercato consumer, e indirizzate ai sistemi dei data center per l'implementazione di piattaforme per Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

La FirePro S9000 è una scheda grafica dual-slot, raffreddata in maniera completamente passiva, il cui processore grafico è denominato "Tahiti" ed è utilizzato dalle Radeon HD 7900. Il core della gpu lavora a 925MHz ed il frame buffer, implementato con 6GB di RAM G-DDR5, è connesso al processore grafico mediante un bus a 384-bit; il TDP della FirePro S9000 è invece pari a 225W.

In accordo al produttore, la FirePro S9000 garantisce prestazioni massime pari a 3.23TFLOPS con i calcoli a precisione singla e a 806GFLOPS con quelli a precisione doppia; inoltre può gestire il frame buffer con Error Correcting Code (ECC) e rende disponibile un'unica uscita video di tipo DisplayPort.

La FirePro S7000 è una video card di tipo single-slot, basata su una gpu "Pitcairn", che è utilizzata anche nei prodotti consumer in abbinamento ai prodotti Radeon HD 7800, in cui il core grafico lavora a 700MHz. Equipaggiata con un cooler passivo, la FirePro S7000 vanta un frame buffer realizzato con 4GB di RAM G-DDR5, un bus di interconnessione con la gpu a 256-bit e un TDP di 150W.

In accordo al produttore, la FirePro S7000 assicura fino a 2.4TFLOPS con i calcoli a precisione singola e fino a 152GFLOPS con quelli a precisione doppia.

La scheda video AMD FirePro S9000 ha un MSRP pari a $2499 USD, mentre quello della AMD FirePro S7000 è pari a $1249. Concludiamo osservando che, sebbene entrambe le card siano raffreddate passivamente, AMD suggerisce, per prevenire il surriscaldamento, di installare un sistema di raffreddamento da 10CFM per la FirePro S7000 e da 20CFM per la FirePro S9000.

AMD (NYSE: AMD) today launched the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000, the industry’s most powerful dual- and single-slot server graphics cards for compute, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and workstation graphics deployments in data centers. Equipped with next-generation Graphics Core Next architecture and intelligent AMD PowerTune and ZeroCore Power technologies, the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 reduce power consumption by up to 95% at idle, meaning greater savings and reduced operating costs in the data center3.

By using the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 server graphics, information technology (IT) managers can now effectively address a number of daily data center challenges, while empowering IT professionals to manage intense workloads securely from virtually anywhere in the world at virtually any time. By having the flexibility to set up multiple virtual desktops, scientists, engineers and graphics professionals can have access to accelerated productivity suites including computer aided design (CAD), and media and entertainment (M&E) applications, offering them workstation-class performance in a scalable network environment.

In a separate announcement, AMD also launched today its new AMD Opteron processor-based servers designed for virtualization environments; offering superior value and performance scalability as server utilization increases in the cloud.

"More companies want to virtualize their IT ecosystem in order to do more with less while remaining responsive to the needs of their users," said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD. "With the arrival of the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 GPUs, we are responding to these needs by providing a seamless solution. Our server graphics not only provide an unrivaled feature set for data center customers, but blistering compute performance and outstanding power efficiency."

Supporting Leading Virtualization Technologies
The AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 server graphics bring improved VDI densities while supporting virtualization technologies from Citrix, Microsoft and VMware, making it possible to install multiple graphics cards in a server and support multiple users remotely. Users can also access their desktops from virtually any device of their choosing, from thin clients to laptops, to tablets to smartphones – with outstanding graphics performance. A demo of VMware ESXi direct GPU pass-through running on an AMD FirePro S9000 can be seen this week at VMworld 2012 in the AMD booth (#801). With Corporate Desktop Replacement running on AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 server graphics and Microsoft RemoteFX, IT professionals can power multiple end users running common office applications from one GPU installed in a server. These new server graphics cards also support direct GPU pass-through for Citrix XenServer.

Versatility and Scalability
Both server graphics cards offer a flexible and scalable solution capable of supporting remote desktop deployments; render farms, traditional workstation graphics applications, and high performance computing (HPC) implementations that require massive floating point calculations. With a single unified driver, deploying the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 server graphics in the data center can enable IT groups to reduce operating costs and time spent on servicing individual systems, increase asset utilization density, improve user experience and ultimately secure critical data.

Key Features of AMD FirePro S9000 Server Graphics

  • Unmatched Compute Power: By providing 4.0 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance, AMD FirePro S9000 server graphics are up to 2.4 times faster than the competing solution4, effortlessly processing the most demanding computations and graphics workflows.
  • Memory Performance: Equipped with 6GB GDDR5 frame buffer, AMD FirePro S9000 server graphics deliver up to 1.49 times more memory bandwidth than competing products5, meaning outstanding precision and accuracy when computing complex graphics workloads.
  • Optimized Power Management: AMD FirePro S9000 server graphics allow IT managers to implement high-performance solutions that can help reduce operating costs via intelligent power saving and monitoring technologies unique to AMD.
Key Features of AMD FirePro S7000 Server Graphics
  • Powerful Single-Slot, Passively-Cooled Performance: Featuring 154 GB/s of memory bandwidth and 2.4 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating-point performance, AMD FirePro S7000 is the most powerful single-slot, passively-cooled multifunctional server graphics card on the market2. In fact, AMD is the only graphics manufacturer offering a passively-cooled, single-slot server graphics card today.
  • Low Operational Costs: Consuming only 150W max power, AMD FirePro S7000 server graphics help to reduce costs and system complexity in server environments.
Both the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 server graphics are rigorously tested to ensure reliable performance for demanding server environments backed by a longer term limited warranty than that typically available for consumer graphics cards, and are supported by AMD 24-hour customer support. The AMD FirePro S9000 server graphics card is available at a MSRP of $2,499 USD and the AMD FirePro S7000 server graphics card is priced at an MSRP of $1,249 USD.
