AMD Announces FirePro S10000 12 GB Edition Graphics Card

By - Source: AMD | B 32 comments

AMD is sprucing up its FirePro line with the addition of a new S10000 model.

AMD today unveiled its newest addition to its FirePro line of graphics cards. The FirePro S10000 12 GB Edition card is aimed at big data high-performance computing and features full PCI Express 3.0 support as well as EEC memory plus DirectGMA support.

 

"Our compute application customers asked for a solution that offers increased memory to support larger data sets as they create new products and services," said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics, AMD. "In response, we're announcing the AMD FirePro S10000 12 GB Edition graphics card to meet that additional memory demand with support for OpenCL and high-end compute and graphics technologies."

The S10000 12 GB Edition joins the already available S10000 with 6 GB of DDR5 memory. This was announced last year as a follow on to the S9000 and is already in use in supercomputers at the University of Frankfurt's Institution of Advanced Studies. The 6 GB version of the FirePro S10000 is still available and priced at roughly $3,000, which is about $500 less than what AMD charged at launch.

AMD didn't offer any specifics on pricing for the FirePro S10000 12 GB Edition. It will be available in Spring 2014. We'll keep you posted on pricing and other details as soon as we hear anything.

    Wow, reading these comments, you'd think no one has ever seen a server before, nor special hardware made for SERVERS.

    Not remotely overkill if one has working with a 500GB GIS dataset, or a 100K wide
    sat image (IDEX imaging), or a CT/MRI volume set, or any number of very complex
    applications that gobble huge amounts of RAM.

    What I'd like to see is a pro GPU option that permits scalable memory. Comes
    with 6GB default, scale to 600 or whatever.

    Wasn't this a dual GPU?
    So it should be 2x6GB, right? Or is it 2x12GB?

    At first glance I thought this was the heat sink for the R9 290 series.

    Looks like a Photoshop joke - except it's real.

    Isn't this the Firepro version of HD7990? The original version was launched quite a while back if I recall.

    @razor512: It looks like they're trying to adjust for hot air from the first GPU by changing the fin density (fewer fins on the first GPU and more fins on the second [last in air flow] GPU).

    Hmmm, EEC memory support. :)
