AMD Releases The FirePro S9150 Server GPU for HPC


AMD today announced the AMD FirePro S9150 server card -- the company's most powerful server Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) ever built for High Performance Computing.

Based on the AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the first AMD architecture designed specifically with compute workloads in mind, the AMD FirePro S9150 server card is the first server card to support enhanced double precision and break the 2.0 TFLOPS double precision barrier. It comes with 16GB of GDDR5 memory onboard and a maximum power consumption of 235 watts.

In addition to AMD support for OpenCL, including support for OpenCL 2.0 planned later this year, AMD today announced a collaboration with Pathscale to support OpenMP 4.0 for AMD FirePro S9150 and selected other AMD FirePro graphics cards.

The AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU features:

- 5.07 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating point performance
- Maximum double-precision floating point performance resulting in 2.53 TFLOPS peak double-precision compute performance -- half of its peak single precision performance.
- 16GB GDDR5 memory, 512-bit memory interface and up to 320 GB/s memory bandwidth
- 2,816 stream processors (44 GCN compute units)
- Error Correcting Code Memory support (external)
- Ready to support OpenCL 2.04
- 235W maximum power consumption
- AMD STREAM technology

Additionally, AMD introduced the new AMD FirePro S9050 server GPU with 12GB of GDDR5 memory and ECC Memory support. The new server GPU delivers 3.23 TFLOPS of peak single precision, plus 806 GFLOPS of double precision floating-point performance.

The AMD FirePro S9050 server GPU features:

- 12GB GDDR5 memory, 384-bit memory interface and up to 264 GB/s memory bandwidth
- 1,792 stream processors (28 GCN compute units)
- OpenCL 1.2 support
- Error Correcting Code Memory support (internal and external)
- 225W maximum power consumption

Both of the AMD FirePro S9150 and S9050 server GPUs feature PCIe x16 dual slot form factors and passive thermal solutions more compatible with server environments. Additionally, both cards support AMD STREAM technology which powers the ecosystem that enables AMD FirePro S-Series server GPUs to be used for compute intensive workflows leveraging the parallel processing power of AMD GPUs, and to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics.

 

AMD FirePro S9150 and S9050 are expected to be available for purchase in Q3 from AMD global distribution partner SAPPHIRE Technology, and compatible servers and motherboards for the AMD FirePro S9150 are also available from server integrators ASUS, GIGABYTE, Supermicro and TYAN.
