Is AMD Back in HPC? New FirePro GPU Does 2.53 Tflops

amd-firepro-s9150-server-graphicsToday AMD announced their new FirePro S9150 GPU with 2.52 Teraflops of double-precision performance and a maximum power consumption of 235 watts.

Today’s supercomputers feature an increasing mix of GPUs, CPUs and co-processors to achieve great performance, and many of them are being implemented in an environmentally responsible manner to help reduce power and water consumption,” said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, professional graphics, AMD. “Designed for large scale multi-GPU support and unmatched compute performance, AMD FirePro S9150 ushers in a new era of supercomputing. Its memory configuration, compute capabilities and performance per watt are unmatched in its class, and can help take supercomputers to the next level of performance and energy efficiency.”

The AMD FirePro S9150 server GPU features:

  • 5.07 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating point performance — up to 18 percent more than the competition.
  • Maximum double-precision floating point performance resulting in 2.53 TFLOPS peak double-precision compute performance — half of its peak single precision performance.
  • Industry leading memory configuration3 — 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)
  • Support for OpenCL 2.04
  • AMD STREAM technology

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