Message Text: AMD today announced its next flagship FirePro product -- the new FirePro W9100 -- based on the company?s Hawaii family of processors.

Compared to the previous FirePro W9000 model, the new card is based on the Hawaii architecture, features TrueAudio, the Asynchronous Compute Engine (ACE), a wider 4 primitive geometry pipeline and an increased performance and performance per watt. Below you see a compparison of the two cards, based on the information AMD has provided so far:

Based on a fully enabled Hawaii GPU, the W9100has 2816 SPs spread out over 44 CUs. AMD has nt provided clock speeds yet. AMD has also packed W9100 with 16GB of memory.

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.
