AMD says that FP32 is rated for over 5 GFLOPS and FP64 is rated for over 2 GFLOPS.

AMD has also announced that they will be introducing a new workstation branding initiative to go with the card. Dubbed the ?Ultra Workstation? initiative, the program will have 3 tiers of workstations, indicating how many GPUs they have in them and what kind of tasks AMD is recommending for them based on resource requirements and how well major applications scale to that many GPUs.

All of the Ultra Workstation tiers will have a minimum of 32GB of system memory, at least one 8 core CPU, and of course at least one W9100.
