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 …

NEC Intros EA244WMi Monitor in Two Color Versions

NEC, a renowned Japanese monitor designer, introduces a new 24-inch monitor with IPS panel type. Models EA244WMi and EA244WMi-BK are considered to be a single product, delivered in two color variations: black and white. Both monitors feature 1920x1200 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. The display is characterized by the availability of a power-saving LED backlight and 6ms (GtG) response time.

Irrespective of the seemingly unassuming design, EA244WMi is notable by a multi-functional stand. Its framework permits the customer to change the display tilt from -5 to +30 degrees, rotate it at 340 degrees left and right, rotate it at 90 degrees in vertical surface, and alter its height level. The display frame accommodates a couple of 1W stereo speakers, while its rear panel is furnished with mini-jack 3.5 mm audio slots, four-port USB 2.0 hub, and a set of video outputs (mini-D-Sub, DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI).

Other specifications of NEC EA244WMi include:
