Equip your HPC solution with the same GPU accelerator used to power the world’s most energy efficient supercomputer – the AMD FirePro™ S9150!1
AMD offers a great solution designed with HPC professionals and workflows in mind. The AMD FirePro™ S9150 is based on AMD’s latest Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture. It is specifically designed to offer the best in both single and double-precision compute performance, with no other single-GPU card capable of matching its speed or power efficiency.1 2
AMD FirePro™ S9150 is the first card to deliver two teraflops of sustained DGEMM double-precision compute performance², but the list of achievements doesn’t stop there. AMD has broken new ground in a number of areas, including:
|•||FIRST on the November 2014 Green500 List1|
|•||FIRST to break the 5 GFLOPS-per-watt barrier1|
|•||FIRST GPU server card to have full double-precision floating point performance2|
|•||FIRST GPU server card to have 16GB GDDR5 memory, the largest for a single-chip server GPU4|
|•||BEST performance per watt1|
|•||GREAT performance per dollar|
|•||SUPPORT for OpenCL™ 2.03|
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 K40.2
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.
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.
