SUNNYVALE, CA 11/14/13 AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announ짯ced the new AMD Fire짯Pro꽓 S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on gra짯phics card, desi짯gned for big data high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting (HPC) workloads for sin짯gle pre짯cis짯i짯on and dou짯ble pre짯cis짯i짯on per짯for짯mance. With full sup짯port for PCI Express짰 3.0 and opti짯mi짯zed for use with the Open짯CL꽓 com짯pu짯te pro짯gramming lan짯guage, the AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on GPU fea짯tures ECC memo짯ry plus DirectGMA sup짯port allo짯wing deve짯lo짯pers working with lar짯ge models and assem짯blies to take advan짯ta짯ge of the mas짯si짯ve짯ly par짯al짯lel pro짯ces짯sing capa짯bi짯li짯ties of AMD GPUs based on the latest AMD Gra짯phics Core Next (GCN) archi짯tec짯tu짯re. AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on GPU is sla짯ted for avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty in Spring 2014.

The AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on gra짯phics card is a com짯pel짯ling solu짯ti짯on for a varie짯ty of scenarios:

  • Compute/Visualization Ser짯ver: finan짯ce, oil explo짯ra짯ti짯on, aero짯nau짯tics and auto짯mo짯ti짯ve, design and engi짯nee짯ring, geo짯phy짯sics, life sci짯en짯ces, medi짯ci짯ne and defense
  • Dou짯ble pre짯cis짯i짯on: gene짯tic sequen짯cing, com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal flu짯id dyna짯mics, struc짯tu짯ral mecha짯nics, nume짯ral ana짯ly짯tics, reser짯voir simu짯la짯ti짯on, auto짯ma짯ted reaso짯ning and wea짯ther forecasting
  • Sin짯gle pre짯cis짯i짯on: seis짯mic pro짯ces짯sing, mole짯cu짯lar dyna짯mics, satel짯li짯te ima짯ging, expli짯cit crash test simu짯la짯ti짯on, video enhance짯ment, signal pro짯ces짯sing, video trans짯co짯ding, digi짯tal ren짯de짯ring and medi짯cal imaging
  • Ultra High-end Work짯sta짯tion (Requi짯ring GPU com짯pu짯te and 3D gra짯phics per짯for짯mance): Oil and gas, com짯pu짯ter aided engineering

Our com짯pu짯te appli짯ca짯ti짯on cus짯to짯mers asked for a solu짯ti짯on that offers increased memo짯ry to sup짯port lar짯ger data sets as they crea짯te new pro짯ducts and ser짯vices, said David Cum짯mings, seni짯or direc짯tor and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Pro짯fes짯sio짯nal Gra짯phics, AMD. 쏧n respon짯se, we쇑춓e announ짯cing the AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on gra짯phics card to meet that addi짯tio짯nal memo짯ry demand with sup짯port for Open짯CL and high-end com짯pu짯te and gra짯phics technologies.

AMD is pro짯ving again to be a key play짯er in pro짯vi짯ding out짯stan짯ding 3D gra짯phics and GPGPU com짯pu짯te solu짯ti짯ons based on the Open짯CL Khro짯nos Group stan짯dard for the indus짯try with the announce짯ment of the new AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB gra짯phics card, said Nico짯las Duny, VP R&D Tech짯no짯lo짯gies, Das짯sault Sys짯t챔짯mes. AMD is an indus짯try inno짯va짯tor by respon짯ding to our cus짯to짯mers needs with cut짯ting edge tech짯no짯lo짯gy. The AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB card will be a wel짯co짯me addi짯ti짯on to the mar짯ket and to our customers.

Our cus짯to짯mers are always eager for addi짯tio짯nal memo짯ry, so the intro짯duc짯tion of the AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on gra짯phics card means key appli짯ca짯ti짯ons will final짯ly be able to take advan짯ta짯ge of the gra짯phics com짯pu짯te capa짯bi짯li짯ties, said Lau짯rent Ber짯taux, CEO, CAPS. 쏛s a lea짯ding pro짯vi짯der of soft짯ware and solu짯ti짯ons for the HPC com짯mu짯ni짯ty, CAPS reco짯gni짯zes that this is a gre짯at oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty for cus짯to짯mers to redu짯ce the poten짯ti짯al for the bot짯t짯len짯eck of data trans짯fer, thus impro짯ving over짯all appli짯ca짯ti짯on per짯for짯mance. CAPS is a long-time AMD sup짯port짯er so we쇑춓e plea짯sed that CAPS FORTAN and C com짯pi짯lers for Open짯CL can imme짯dia짯te짯ly make full use of the 12GB memo짯ry offe짯red in this new AMD Fire짯Pro solution.

The cur짯rent AMD Fire짯Pro꽓 S10000 gra짯phics solu짯ti짯on with 6GB of GDDR5 memo짯ry has recei짯ved gre짯at accla짯im. For exam짯p짯le, the Uni짯ver짯si짯ty of Frankfurt셲 Insti짯tu짯ti짯on of Advan짯ced Stu짯dies use of the card with the SANAM super짯com짯pu짯ter ranks in the top five on the Green500꽓 List as one of the most powerful and ener짯gy-effi짯ci짯ent super짯com짯pu짯ters powered by gra짯phics processors.

The AMD Fire짯Pro꽓 S10000 with 6GB of memo짯ry is curr짯ent짯ly available for purcha짯se while the AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB Edi짯ti짯on gra짯phics card is sla짯ted for avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty in Spring 2014.

Plea짯se visit AMD at Super짯com짯pu짯ting 13, booth #1113, to see the AMD Fire짯Pro S10000 12GB for the latest in GPU com짯pu짯te technology.
