The Industry’s Most Powerful Single-slot Multifunctional Server
Graphics Card for Compute, Workstation Graphics and VDI1.
IT departments are faced with many
challenges: doing more with less
resource, configuring computing
solutions to meet a variety of end user
needs, reigning in time spent on system
support and maintenance, preventing
data leakage, and supporting multiple
operating systems and application
versions. AMD FirePro™ technology is
designed to help IT meet these
challenges and more. AMD FirePro™ S7000 server
graphics deployed in the data center can help IT
transition end-user desktops to a virtualized data
center while still providing individuals with the graphics
acceleration required to run their applications.
Featuring 4GB of GDDR5 memory, 154 GB/s of memory
bandwidth and 2.4 TFLOPS of peak single precision
floating point performance, AMD FirePro™ S7000 is
the most powerful single-slot, passively cooled
multifunctional server graphics card AMD ever created.
In fact, as of launch, AMD is the only graphics card
manufacturer offering single-slot, passively cooled
server graphics cards.
With AMD FirePro™ S7000 there is only one solution
for IT to maintain, update and stock to meet the most
demanding centralized computing needs. Coupled
with a single unified driver, AMD FirePro™ S7000 server
graphics offer IT a flexible and scalable solution capable
of supporting Remote Graphics and Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure (VDI) deployments, rendering farms,
High Performance Computing implementations,
and traditional workstation graphics applications for
Computer Aided Design and Engineering, (CAD/CAE)
and Media & Entertainment (M&E).
The Leading Edge of Graphics Virtualization
AMD FirePro™ technology supports leading virtualization
technologies from Citrix®, VMware® and Microsoft® that
enable the delivery of graphically accelerated virtual
machines. With an AMD FirePro™ S7000 server graphics
card installed in a rack, blade server or PCIe® expansion
chassis, it can support a large number of concurrent
user computing sessions – including rich media like full
motion video and 3D applications. With RemoteFX, all
users need to connect is a PC client device or a zero
client portal. No special hardware is required at each
end user’s workspace – just a network connection,
display, keyboard and mouse. Users have the ability to
work seamlessly with business productivity
applications, video, graphically rich OS interfaces, as
well as CAD/CAE and M&E applications.
AMD FirePro™ S7000 also supports Citrix® XenServer™
and VMware® ESXi with direct GPU pass-through
support. A server outfitted with multiple GPUs can
power multiple virtual desktops from the data center
(one GPU per virtual desktop). With AMD FirePro™
S7000 and these leading virtualization technologies,
IT can support multiple end users with one server
workstation and without sacrificing
graphics performance.
