AMD today announced the launch of the AMD FireStream 9350
and 9370 GPU compute accelerators, delivering high
performance and power efficiency to the commercial,
scientific and academic research markets.
With up to 2.64 TFLOPS of compute power, the new AMD
FireStream accelerators are ideal for HPC, cloud and
"Heterogeneous systems in which high-performance GPU and
x86 CPU technologies work in tandem can deliver enormous
computational power," said Patricia Harrell, director,
Stream Computing, AMD. "Industry standards like OpenCL are
driving rapid adoption of heterogeneous architectures, and
commercial customers deploying systems with AMD FireStream
accelerators and AMD Opteron processors can immediately
experience the benefits of the combined technologies."
The AMD FireStream 9350 delivers 2.0 TFLOPS of single
precision performance and 400 GFLOPS of double precision
floating point performance in a single-slot, 150W solution
with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, enabling breakthrough compute
density. The AMD FireStream 9370 delivers up to 2.64 TFLOPS
of single precision performance and 528 GFLOPS of
double-precision performance, and includes 4GB of
high-speed GDDR5 memory, at a maximum board power of 225
watts. In addition, the AMD FireStream 9350 and 9370 both
support leading industry standard application interfaces,
including OpenCL, DirectX 11 and OpenGL.
The OpenCL industry standard programming language allows
developers to preserve their source code investments and
easily target multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and will be supported
on the upcoming AMD Fusion APUs. With the ATI Stream
Software Development Kit v2.1, the developer community can
harness the combined compute power of ATI FireStream GPU
compute accelerators and AMD Opteron processor-based
platforms such as the AMD Opteron 4000 Series platforms
announced today, and allocate workloads among both
processors to achieve optimal application performance.
The AMD FireStream 9350 and 9370 GPU compute accelerators
are scheduled to be available for purchase from AMD and its
technology partners, including One Stop Systems and
Supermicro, beginning in Q3 2010.
