AMD AMD Announces four new AMD FirePro Workstation graphics cards, based on GCN

The Southern Islands Professional workstation cards have been announced, as SIGGRAPH ramps up. The new cards, ranging from $599 to $3999, feature the Graphics Core Next architecture first introduced in December 2011 and the AMD Radeon HD 7970.

AMD launched its latest line of workstation graphics, leading with the AMD FirePro™ W9000 Graphics Processing Unit -- the most powerful workstation graphics card ever created1. The AMD FirePro™ W9000 GPU features incredible compute, increased memory bandwidth and greater multi-display support performance than the competing solution.1 Following closely are the AMD FirePro™ W8000, W7000 and W5000 workstation graphics cards, all built on the AMD Graphics Core Next Architecture, and designed to balance compute and 3D workloads efficiently for computer-aided design and engineering, and for media and entertainment (M&E) professionals. The AMD FirePro W9000, W8000, W7000 and W5000 GPUs are optimized and certified for leading software applications enabling users to unleash their creativity by ensuring ultra-high geometry performance. The latest AMD FirePro™ workstation graphics cards can enable smooth handling of complex models and feature dynamic power management that enables great performance and efficient power usage. Using AMD Eyefinity technology, the AMD FirePro W9000, W8000, and W7000 GPUs can drive up to six, 30" independent displays via Multi-Stream Transport (MST) hubs for maximum workspace utilization at ultra-high 4096x2160 resolutions2.

"As professionals work with larger data sets that demand advanced visualization and complex models, they need a graphics solution that is fast, powerful, and reliable," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD Graphics. "Certified for today's software applications, the new AMD FirePro workstation graphics cards bring a range of features and capabilities for professionals working in digital signage, broadcast graphics, CAD/CAE and M&E, delivering the ideal balance of power, performance and reliability at the right price point."

With the latest AMD FirePro workstation graphics offerings, graphics professionals can create more complex models and interact with them in real time, helping improve workflows and boost productivity. Through GCN and GeometryBoost, the state-of-the-art AMD FirePro W9000 workstation GPU delivers a record shattering 1.95 billon triangles per second, which is 1.5 times as great as the competitor's most powerful workstation graphics card, and up to 83 percent greater memory bandwidth than the competing solution, for outstanding application responsiveness1,3.



AMD FirePro W9000, W8000, W7000, W5000 workstation graphics cards are available via AMD resellers and are supported in Supermicro SuperWorkstations. AMD FirePro™ M6000, M4000 and M2000 mobile workstations graphics cards are also available via AMD resellers and are featured in new systems from HP and Dell.
