AMD FirePro™ Accelerators for High Performance Compute
The World’s First GPU Accelerator with 1TB/s Memory Bandwidth
GPUs are a compelling solution for HPC, boasting impressive densities and exceptional performance per watt with GPU-accelerated supercomputers dominating the Green500 list. Thanks to major advances in GPU technology and the rise of OpenCL™, the open standard for parallel programming, more science and engineering firms are turning to GPU servers and clusters to crunch complex datasets.
AMD FirePro™ S9300x2 Server GPU
Accelerate your most complex HPC workloads in data analytics or seismic processing on the world’s fastest single-precision compute GPU accelerator, the AMD FirePro™ S9300 x2 Server GPU.2,5 The new AMD FirePro™ S9300 x2 Server GPU is the world’s first professional GPU accelerator to be equipped with high bandwidth memory (HBM) and the first accelerator compatible with all AMD’s GPUOpen Professional Compute tools and libraries. HBM allows the AMD FirePro S9300 x2 Server GPU to exceed the competition with 3.5x the memory bandwidth of NVIDIA’s Tesla M40 and 2.1x the memory bandwidth of NVIDIA’s Tesla K803.
Powerful Double Precision performance for HPC - AMD FirePro™ S9150 Server GPU
Whether you’re doing scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, the AMD FirePro S9150 can help accelerate all of your demanding GPU compute needs. Accelerate past our competition, with over 50* more double-precision performance than the comparable Tesla K40. DGEMM, or Double-precision General Matrix-Matrix multiplication, measures floating point execution rate for double precision, real matrix-matrix multiplication. There are many real-world applications that take advantage of double-precision matrix operations. These include computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and structural modelling, and molecular dynamics. With our AMD OpenCL BLAS implementation, we are able to achieve 2 TFLOPS of sustained DGEMM performance with the S9150, while the Tesla K40 achieves 1.3 TFLOPS DGEMM.
Hardware configurations: K40 - The OS is SLED 11 SP3, with driver 340.65 and CUDA 6.5 SDK, S9150 - The OS is SLED 11 SP3, AMD 15.20 driver
Recently, PathScale collaborated with Cirrascale to conduct a test on the OpenACC SPEC-ACCEL benchmark using the AMD FirePro™ S9150. The PathScale ENZO compiler generating an AMD FirePro S9150 executable is now the fastest OpenACC solution as of March, 2015, according to PathScale.
The Best GPU for Double Precision Compute Just Got Better - AMD FirePro™ S9170 Server GPU
Accelerate your most complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, and witness the power of the world’s first 32GB server GPU, the AMD FirePro™ S9170
"When deciding on the building blocks for this computer we knew that GPU power would be critical to success. AMD was an easy choice. Installing and optimizing AMD server graphics was absolutely key to the performance we achieved."
