The debut of a new line of graphics cards AMD FirePro Wx000 on base of graphics processors family Southern Islands (28 nm) is also known as the basis for gaming decisions Radeon HD 7000.
Single-chip FirePro W9000 includes a GPU Taxiti XT 4 teraflops of performance when dealing with numbers and a single-precision teraflops in operations with double precision. The volume of on-board video memory is 6 GB of GDDR5, the recommended price — $ 4000. Scope of the discrete graphics FirePro / Southern Islands is traditional: CAD-applications that work with the media content, and system digital signage.
One position lower is FirePro W8000. It uses the kernel Tahiti Pro or XT, characterized by Tflops/806 3.23 Gflops of performance, memory capacity of 4 GB and a price tag of $ 1,600. Even lower in the hierarchy is the FirePro W7000. The card is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM and the chip Pitcairn XT (Radeon HD 7870). Performance, according to AMD, is 2.4 Gflops Tflops/152 when dealing with numbers, single and double precision, respectively. The cost of the accelerator is $ 900. Junior FirePro W5000 boasts modest, both for the professional segment of the video card, the price of 600 dollars and a small TDP. Otherwise, it's low-power «workhorse» with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and performance Tflops/80 1.27 Gflops.
The first hybrid processors for workstations FirePro A300 and FirePro A320 have the same basic characteristics as the representatives of the family of Trinity — A8-5700 and A10-5800K, respectively. Integrated graphics VLIW4 provides a basic level of performance in CAD-applications and working with media files. It is claimed to support technology Eyefinity and Discrete Compute Offload (DCO), resolution up to 10240x1600 pixels, 30-bit color and the presence of hardware UVD decoder 3.
