    AMD today launched the AMD FirePro S10000, the industry's most powerful server graphics card, designed for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications.

    The AMD FirePro S10000 is the first professional-grade card to exceed one teraFLOPS (TFLOPS) of double-precision floating-point performance, helping to ensure optimal efficiency for HPC calculations. It is also the first ultra high-end card that brings an unprecedented 5.91 TFLOPS of peak single-precision and 1.48 TFLOPS of double-precision floating-point calculations. This performance ensures the fastest possible data processing speeds for professionals working with large amounts of information. In addition to HPC, the FirePro S10000 is also ideal for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and workstation graphics deployments.

    "The demands placed on servers by compute and graphics-intensive workloads continues to grow exponentially as professionals work with larger data sets to design and engineer new products and services," said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD. "The AMD FirePro S10000, equipped with our Graphics Core Next Architecture, enables server graphics to play a dual role in providing both compute and graphics horsepower simultaneously. This is executed without compromising performance for users while helping reduce the total cost of ownership for IT managers."

    Equipped with AMD next-generation Graphics Core Next Architecture, the FirePro S10000 brings high performance computing and visualization to a variety of disciplines such as finance, oil exploration, aeronautics, automotive design and engineering, geophysics, life sciences, medicine and defense. With dual GPUs at work, professionals can experience high throughput, low latency transfers allowing for quick compute of complex calculations requiring high accuracy.

    Responding to IT Manager Needs
    With two powerful GPUs in one dual-slot card, the FirePro S10000 enables high GPU density in the data center for VDI and helps increase overall processing performance. This makes it ideal for IT managers considering GPUs to sustain compute and facilitate graphics intensive workloads. Two on-board GPUs can help IT managers reap significant cost savings, replacing the need to purchase two single ultra-high-end graphics cards, and can help reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) due to lower power and cooling expenses.

    Key Features of AMD FirePro S10000 Server Graphics

    ● Compute Performance: The AMD FirePro S10000 is the most powerful dual-GPU server graphics card ever created, delivering up to 1.3 times the single precision and up to 7.8 times peak double-precision floating-point performance of the competition's comparable dual-GPU product. It also boasts an unprecedented 1.48 TFLOPS of peak double-precision floating-point performance;
    ● Increased Performance-Per-Watt: The AMD FirePro S10000 delivers the highest peak double-precision performance-per-watt -- 3.94 gigaFLOPS -- up to 4.7 times more than the competition's comparable dual-GPU product;
    ● High Memory Bandwidth: Equipped with a 6GB GDDR5 frame buffer and a 384-bit interface, the AMD FirePro S10000 delivers up to 1.5 times the memory bandwidth of the comparable competing dual-GPU solution;
    ● DirectGMA Support: This feature removes CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks, optimizing communication between both GPUs. This also enables P2P data transfers between devices on the bus and the GPU, completely bypassing any need to traverse the host's main memory, utilize the CPU, or incur additional redundant transfers over PCI Express, resulting in high throughput low-latency transfers which allow for quick compute of complex calculations requiring high accuracy;
    ● OpenCL Support: OpenCL has become the compute programming language of choice among developers looking to take full advantage of the combined parallel processing capabilities of the FirePro S10000. This has accelerated computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), and media and entertainment (M&E) software, changing the way professionals work thanks to performance and functionality improvements.

    Please visit AMD at SC12, booth #2019, to see the AMD FirePro S10000 power the latest in graphics technology.

    They are all custom cards. This is what reference 7990 should have been if it was released.

    375W TDP for a server part!...that should go down well.


    S10000...1.48 TFlops FP64 @ 375W
    K20X......1.31 TFlops FP64 @ 235W

    Must be one hell of a niche market

    I wouldn't want to see a 7990... I'll just wait for a 8990 since releasing a 7990 now would be pointless

    Apart from all those Opterons in Titan working in perfect co-existence with the Keplers.
    de.das.dude says thanks.

    Fps

    I've always wondered about these cards, how many fps would you get with this card for like Bf3 or Crysis?

    Less than Radeon cards, drivers are optimized for OpenGL (CAD etc.), some also have ECC GDDR which has it's impact.

    Note that his is basically a dual S9000/7950 spec-wise.
    With 2 Tahiti XT cores it will require more cooling.

    Spec table wasn't there when I posted. I think.

    Anyway, huge power draw could be the reason why AMD didn't release 7990 in the first place. It's ok for custom cards to have enormous power draw.

    BAH !! The TDP of my pair of 6970s is 500W (250 each). I'll take one please. :)

    I'd love to have this card for my Solidworks 2012. I'm still using a FireGL v5200, and it's still a kickass card. I'd really like to see what these will crunch, and fold as well. This card could be anywhere from $1500 to $2500...

    No major FirePro S supercomputers yet, unless I'm not well informed.

    S10000: Worse perf/watt than K20/Knight's point, better overall performance if theoretical/actual linpack score is good (>~70 percent).

    From the Press Release it looked to be aimed at Quadro.

    The market i think they are aiming for is SP users with no DP or minimal DP workload who want to save $ & space.

    1 S1000
    5.91 TFLOP
    $3599 Est

    2 K5000
    4.2 TFLOP
    $4498 (Each $2249) Est

    2 K20
    7.0 TFLOP
    $6398 (Each $3199) Est
