AMD ha ampliato il proprio catalogo di video card per server con due nuove soluzioni denominate FirePro S9150 e FirePro S9050.

Equipaggiata con una gpu a 28nm che implementa la consolidata architettura Graphics Core Next (GCN), con un frame buffer implementato con 16GB di G-DDR5 e un bus a 512-bit, la FirePro S9150 è indicata da AMD come la "più potente GPU per server mai realizzata per l'High Performance Computing".

La FirePro S9050, che analogamente alla FirePro S9150 sarà distribuita in tutto il mondo da SAPPHIRE Technology, è dotata invece di 12GB di RAM G-DDR5 e garantisce una potenza di calcolo pari a 3.2 TFLOPS con i calcoli a precisione singola e a 806 GFLOPS con quelli a precisione doppia.

Ulteriori dettagli sono inclusi nei seguenti comunicati stampa ufficiali in lingua italiana e inglese.



AMD annuncia la nuova scheda grafica per server AMD FirePro S9150, la più potente GPU per server mai realizzata per l'High Performance Computing (HPC). Basata su architettura Graphics Core Next (GCN), AMD FirePro S9150 è la prima scheda grafica per server a superare la barriera dei 2 TFLOPS in precisione doppia. Con una potenza di 5,07 TLOPS in precisione singola e di 2,53 TFLOPS in precisione doppia (un valore che corrisponde alla metà di quello registrato in precisione singola), mette a disposizione dei supercomputer un'enorme capacità di calcolo, grazie anche ai suoi 16GB di memoria GDDR5 (il 33% in più rispetto alla concorrenza), all'interfaccia di memoria a 512 bit e a un'ampiezza di banda di 320 GB/s. A queste caratteristiche si accompagna un livello massimo di consumo pari a 235 watt, a riconferma dell'impegno di AMD volto al contenimento dei consumi energetici.

AMD FirePro S9150 è supportata da un ricco ecosistema software, che permette così agli sviluppatori di sfruttare la potenza della scheda in misura ancora maggiore. Oltre al supporto a OpenCL (che verrà esteso a OpenCL 2.0 entro la fine dell'anno), AMD annuncia infatti anche l'avvio di una collaborazione con Pathscale per il supporto a OpenMP 4.0 su AMD FirePro S9150 e altre schede selezionate della famiglia AMD FirePro.

AMD presenta inoltre la nuova GPU per server AMD FirePro S9050, con 12GB di memoria GDDR5, supporto alla memoria ECC e prestazioni grafiche e di calcolo all'avanguardia grazie ai suoi 3,2 TFLOPS in precisione singola, agli 806 GFLOPS in precisione doppia, all'interfaccia di memoria a 384 bit, a un'ampiezza di banda pari a 264 GB/s, al supporto a OpenCL 1.2 e a un consumo massimo pari a 225W.

La disponibilità di entrambe le soluzioni è prevista nel corso del terzo trimestre di quest'anno, distribuita a livello globale da SAPPHIRE Technology, mentre server e schede madri compatibili sono disponibili nelle versioni realizzate da ASUS, GIGABYTE, Supermicro e TYAN.
