Benefits of Virtualization
Keeping IT Simple
Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use: The AMD Multiuser GPU works with hypervisors to provide ease of installation. IT managers and system administrators setting up a central server within an enterprise environment can easily implement and configure the AMD Multiuser GPU.
Simplified Product Maintenance and Support: Easy to scale to meet the needs of a growing enterprise, there are no additional headaches to worry about in the future when more users are added to your virtualized environment (up to 16 per GPU depending on workload). Simply add them and go, users don’t have to worry about entering into a technology license or paying any fees.
Keeping Data Secure
AMD Multiuser GPU Technology: Unlike software virtualization, AMD’s hardware-based virtualization solution makes it even more difficult for a hacker to break in at the hardware level. For organizations that highly value security, the new AMD Multiuser GPU is a clear option to go with for their virtualized workstation needs.
Delivering the Most Value for Your Investment
Outstanding Performance Per Dollar: With IT managers not having to worry about entering into a technology license or paying any additional user fees, enterprises get the full economic benefit of VDI with AMD FirePro S7150 or S7150 x2 Server GPUs.
Full-featured, Virtual GPU: With AMD’s implementation of the new Multiuser GPU, users are no longer as limited to what they can or can’t do in a virtualized environment. Users will have access to native AMD display drivers for OpenGL, DirectX® and OpenCL acceleration, enabling them to work as they need. Whatever a user was able to do on a local machine, they can now do in a virtualized environment using our new MxGPU technology.
Graphics Card Features
AMD Multiuser GPU technology
Enables consistent, predictable and secure performance from your virtualized workstation with the world’s first hardware-based virtualized GPU solution, the AMD Multiuser GPU. This new virtualization solution from AMD can enable users to have workstation-class experiences with full ISV certifications, and workstation-class performance.
OpenCL 2.0 Support
Helps professionals tap into the parallel computing power of modern GPUs and multicore CPUs to accelerate compute-intensive tasks in leading CAD/CAM/CAE and Media & Entertainment applications that support OpenCL. The AMD FirePro S7150 server GPU supports OpenCL 2.0, allowing developers to take advantage of new features that give GPUs more freedom to do the work they are designed to do.
8GB GDDR5 Memory
Equipped with 8GB of GDDR5 memory, the FirePro S7150 server GPU can accelerate applications and process computationally complex workflows with ease.
Error Correcting Code (ECC) Memory
Helps ensure the accuracy of your computations by correcting any single or double bit error as a result of naturally occurring background radiation.
Energy Efficient Design
AMD FirePro S7150 GPUs support unique power monitoring and management technologies, and have a maximum power consumption of 150 watts. AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage.
AMD PowerTune Technology is an intelligent power management system that monitors both GPU activity and power draw. AMD PowerTune optimizes the GPU to deliver low power draw when GPU workloads do not demand full activity and delivers the optimal clock speed to ensure the highest possible performance within the GPU’s power budget for high intensity workloads.
