AMD has launched its FirePro W8100 professional graphic card, designed for next generation of 4K CAD and Media and Entertainment workflows.
Bolstering the AMD Professional Graphics product family with yet another productive workstation solution, the FirePro W8100 features an 8 GB of GDDR5 memory, up to 4.2 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance, and double precision compute performance of up to 2.1 TFLOPS.
Up to four graphic cards can be combined in a single system for scalable GPU compute performance of over 16 TFLOPS. The AMD FirePro W8100 allows users to be productive with up to four 4K display support and certified application performance with differentiated graphics features.
The AMD FirePro W8100 is the ideal professional-grade solution for CAD as well as applications dedicated to video editing, color correction, compositing, design visualization and GPU-accelerated compute tasks.
The graphic card features 8GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 on-board memory, designed to empower workstation users to load much larger datasets or handle ultra-HD video frames on the GPU’s internal memory for processing, diminishing the lag while improving the overall responsiveness of the workstation.
The AMD FirePro W8100 is available starting July from AMD’s global distribution partner SAPPHIRE Technology, AMD FirePro Ultra Workstation providers, and major workstation providers.
“Engineering Analysis is becoming increasingly relevant for high-end workstation workflows, and 4K displays drive the need for more performance in media production pipelines,” said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics at AMD.
“By adding the FirePro W8100, we’ve expanded the AMD FirePro family to enable professionals — in cooperation with our hardware and software partners — with the right workstation performance they demand for next generation 4K workflows and supercomputing applications,” he added.
