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.

Intel may release six-core processor Core i7-3970X EE

The top board platform Intel LGA2011 is not yet very demanded among customers, mainly due to the high prices of components — motherboard with chipset X79 and processors Intel Sandy Bridge-E. However, it should be remembered that the models LGA1366 also initially were desirable for only enthusiasts with a tight purse, and only in 2010, with cheaper motherboards and the release of new, more powerful processors, Core i7, (Bloomfield / Westmere) sales statistics of LGA1366 components rose considerably.

Part of this will contribute to six-core Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition which is expected to be released. Core i7-3970X EE has a clock speed of 3.4 or 3.5 GHz stock, which is in turbo mode increases up to 4.0 GHz. Other features of the model coincide with those of the 3960X:

— Process technology: 32 nm Sandy Bridge-E architecture;

— The number of cores / streams: …
