AMD Releases FirePro R5000 Remote Graphics Card

AMD's FirePro R5000 combines the company's Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture with Teradici's PCoIP technology to provide a low latency, 3D experience that the company considers to be ideal for use in CAD, medical imaging and financial services. The Teradici TERA2240 host processor is able to transmit 300 megapixels per second and drive up to four displays per end user, with a refresh rate of up to 60 frames per second.

The company also considers the card to "deliver the deployment flexibility IT needs" with the option to deploy it in desktops, rack and blade servers and PCIe expansion chassis. The R5000 has a maximum power consumption of 150W and features AMD's PowerTune and ZeroCore intelligent power management suite which should enable use in low footprint devices.

Upon the card's release, David Cummings, senior director and general manager of AMD Professional Graphics stated, “The AMD FirePro R5000 meets these needs, delivering the flexibility, functionality, security and industry-leading graphics capabilities companies look for when deciding on a remote graphics solution.”

The AMD FirePro R5000 will be available shortly from select manufacturers and channel partners and is backed by a three year warranty and planned three year minimum lifecycle.

    Waiting with baited breath for a rebirth of the "Diamond Stealth" line of cards...

    It looks low end and how is it "remote"?

    when deciding on a remote graphics solution

    Come again.. Is it just me, or is this a solution looking for a problem?

    Why would you give a CAD designer a dumb terminal? The amount of time spent listening to the bitching and moaning and reading the hate emails from the cad guys (let alone the IT guys) would more than pay for a few workstations..

    A video card with an ethernet port? This looks like the perfect thing for HDBaseT. It'll be so nice to kill HDMI once and for all.

    This is a device that can render images received over TCP/IP on its own without the need of a host computer at the display point. The nature of high bandwidth digital signals such as DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort makes them useless for long distance transmission.

    iknowhowtofixitPlease, copy more news from semiaccurate. I like nothing more than reading things twice with a few days in between.
    Much like semiaccurate used AMD's official press release as the basis for their post, so did we

    You do still need a host computer at the end point, hence my dumb terminal comment. Without a computer at the end, how would you get the dipslay to the monitor, and control the input? Their have been many studies done showing that the hardware and software setup to implement PCoIP or VDI give less RoI than traditional desktop systems, and have performance on par with using a terminal service connection.

    I stand by my comment, that this is a solution looking for a problem. Why would you need this? Instead of quoting the obvious, help me see outside my box, I seriously cannot find a reason why anyone would need this.

    Well, Some folk like to be spied on. The boss can see what you are typing in real time and if you are actually working while he goofs off.
