GOA, INDIA: AMD India launched the AMD FirePro W8100 professional graphics card, enabling new levels of workstation performance delivered by the company’s second generation, industry-leading AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture.
With nearly 38 times the performance of the closest competing product based on double precision testing designed for the next generation of 4K CAD (Computing-Aided Design) and Media and Entertainment (M&E) workflows, engineering analysis and supercomputing applications.
Bolstering the AMD Professional Graphics product family with yet another productive workstation solution, the AMD FirePro W8100 features a best-in-class 8 GB of GDDR5 memory, up to 4.2 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance, and unmatched double precision compute performance of up to 2.1 TFLOPS.
“With an increase in availability and accessibility of 4K displays, there has been a rise in the applications demanding increased memory support while pushing the limits of real-time 4K video production and rendering. The addition of AMD FirePro W8100 is a significant step towards expanding our product portfolio for enabling professionals – in cooperation with our hardware and software partners – with the best kind of workstation performance that they need for supercomputing applications and next generation 4K workflows,” said Raja Koduri, corporate VP, Visual Computing, AMD.
