AMD today announced the new AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU, the 32GB single-GPU server card for DGEMM heavy double-precision workloads.
The AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU can deliver up to 5.24 TFLOPS of peak single precision compute performance while enabling throughput double precision performance, providing up to 2.62 TFLOPS of peak double precision performance, said AMD in a statement.
AMD will be targeting data center managers who oversee clusters within academic or government bodies, oil and gas industries, or deep neural network compute cluster development.
Sean Burke, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Professional Graphics group, said that the AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU can accelerate complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, wielding 32GB of memory.
