Featuring the first AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture specifically with compute workloads in mind, the AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU supports enhanced double precision floating point computation and breaks the 2.0 TFLOPS double precision barrier. With 16GB of GDDR5 memory and maximum power consumption of 235 watts, AMD FirePro S9150 server GPUs provide massive compute performance while helping maximize available power budgets.
"We're proud to offer AMD FirePro server GPUs to deliver HP server users with the compute power to manage intense workloads for a variety of scenarios", stated Karl Freund, general manager, Professional Graphics at AMD. "HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 server users can benefit from support for open standards, such as OpenCL and OpenMP, for GPU compute and multiple GPUs per server."
"With the AMD FirePro GPU, the HP ProLiant DL380 can run graphics intensive applications faster than ever", stated Peter Schrady, vice president and general manager, Rack and Tower Servers, HP. "Our government, academic and energy customers will see performance benefits, letting them do more with their HP ProLiant servers."
With AMD STREAM technology, customers will be able to leverage the massive parallel processing power of the AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU and accelerate applications beyond just graphics. The server GPU features:
The AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU also provides support to handle workloads in a variety of sectors by enabling OpenMP, an API for high-level parallelism in the C, C++, and Fortran languages. In segments such as Oil and Gas, Computer Aided Engineering and Computational Science, many organisations have made substantial investments in OpenMP to create scalable workloads. AMD's collaboration with Pathscale to provide support for OpenMP 4.0 will allow customers in these HPC fields to harness the compute power of AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU.
Additionally, AMD FirePro S4000X server GPUs can be found the HP ProLiant WS460c Graphics Server Blade. With high-quality 3D graphics and multidisplay functionality, the AMD FirePro S4000X server GPU module delivers workstation-class graphics performance on remote desktops. Designed with blade server and blade workstation platforms in mind, each module consumes 45W maximum power, includes 2GB of GDDR5 memory, up to 72 GB/s of memory bandwidth, and the ability to support up to six high resolution remote displays.
