AMD Introduces FirePro S9000 & S7000 Server Graphics Cards
AMD today launched the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000, the industry’s most powerful dual- and single-slot server graphics cards for compute, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and workstation graphics deployments in data centers. Equipped with next-generation Graphics Core Next architecture and intelligent AMD PowerTune and ZeroCore Power technologies, the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 reduce power consumption by up to 95% at idle, meaning greater savings and reduced operating costs in the data center. AMD FirePro S9000 has 6GB of GDDR5 memory and 3.23 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance. It consumes 225W at maximum power. The AMD FirePro S7000 has 2.4 TFLOPs of peak single-precision floating-point performance and a 150W maximum power draw. The AMD FirePro S9000 server graphics card is available at a MSRP of $2,499 USD and the AMD FirePro S7000 server graphics card is priced at an MSRP of $1,249 USD.
“More companies want to virtualize their IT ecosystem in order to do more with less while remaining responsive to the needs of their users,” said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD. “With the arrival of the AMD FirePro S9000 and S7000 GPUs, we are responding to these needs by providing a seamless solution. Our server graphics not only provide an unrivaled feature set for data center customers, but blistering compute performance and outstanding power efficiency.”
