AMD Introduces the FirePro S7100X Hardware-Virtualized GPU for Blade Servers

AMD today announced AMD Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) for blade servers, AMD FirePro S7100X GPU.

AMD MxGPU is the first hardware-virtualized GPU compliant with the SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) PCIe virtualization standard.

The S7100X GPU is the newest addition to the AMD line of graphics virtualization products, designed in a compact form factor with a TGP of just 100W. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is the first to offer the AMD FirePro S7100X GPU in HPE ProLiant WS460c Gen9 Graphics Server Blades available now.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offers a number of benefits associated with security, manageability, and remote access while helping to lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

Rather than repurposing existing GPUs and adding a software layer to accommodate virtualization requirements, AMD MxGPU harnesses an entirely new class of GPU architecture designed with virtualization capabilities built into the silicon. Each virtualized GPU instance appears as a full-featured, native graphical device to the virtual machine's guest operating system, allowing it to be used with certified professional graphics applications and for GPU compute.

The AMD FirePro S7100X GPU supports up to 16 users per GPU across a range of virtualization solutions including VMware, SOLIDWORKS, and Siemens NX and Solid Edge. The AMD FirePro S7100X GPU enables hardware-controlled scheduling cycles to provide predictable quality of service (QoS).

AMD MxGPU technology is the only graphics virtualization solution in the industry that exposes the graphics functionality of the GPU to the virtual instance allowing full support for graphics APIs like DirectX and OpenGL, and GPU compute APIs like OpenCL, enabling applications to be run in virtual environments without altering the code.
Configuration and management is simple using native AMD FirePro graphics drivers.

One of the key benefits of VDI is the ability to centralize and secure data and resources. AMD MxGPU technology preserves the data integrity of virtualized desktops and their application data using hardware-enforced memory isolation logic, rather than a software virtualization overlay found in other offerings, to separate one virtual machine from being able to access another virtual machine's data.
