AMD Outs the World’s First Server FirePro S9300 x2 GPU

AMD has proudly announced the release of the world’s first server-grade graphics accelerator. Entitled FirePro S9300 x2, this GPU is called to facilitate in solving complex computing tasks and take graphics to the next level. The card is linked to the power unit by means of two 8-pin connectors, consuming up to 300 W power at most.

The heart of AMD FirePro S9300 x2 is a bundle of two AMD Fiji GPUs (GCN architecture). They feature a pair of 4096 stream processors and run at 850 MHz frequency. Each GPU employs 4 GB of HBM memory that operates at 1000 MHz clock frequency and offers 512 Gb/sec bandwidth.

The integration of two processing aggregates allows the accelerator to achieve some amazing 13.9 TFLOPS of computing power. As a result, the model exceeds in performance its nearest competitors: Nvidia Tesla K80 with 5.6 TFLOPS as well as Nvidia Tesla M60 with 7.4 TFLOPS.

The support for AMD GPUOpen stack is supposed to be the card’s key advantage. This stack enables …

Spam Modifications and Its Activity Level in 2012

‘Kaspersky Lab’ company, known for the development and distribution of information security programs, has recently published a report dedicated to the spam-system activity for the past quarter of 2012.

ECS Intros a Series of H81 Motherboards with Durathon Support

ECS proudly introduces a series of new motherboards, based on Intel H81 Express chipset. The series consists of three models (H81H3-A3, H81H3-M7, H81H3-I) that support Socket LGA1150 platform and are ready to work with Intel Haswell processors. All three products are developed in different form-factors: standard ATX, microATX and mini-ITX. Therefore, the users have got a chance to choose which item is more appropriate for the assembling of systems with various performance requirements.

Despite the fact that the new-comers position themselves as entry-level solutions, ECS has taken care of their reliability and stability of operation. Therein, it incorporated Durathon technology, which is responsible for the products’ eligible work during a long period of time. Durathon implies the employment of a PCB with high density in order to protect the components from the detrimental effect of moisture, the replacement of standard capacitors to solid-state analogues with prolonged …
