With AMD FirePro™ technology there is only one solution for IT to stock and maintain to meet multiple centralized computing needs. Advanced visual quality, compute performance, application optimizations and support for the latest industry standards, coupled with stable drivers and a long lifecycle, make AMD FirePro™ technology a compelling choice over the competition. Our comprehensive product line delivers the performance, flexibility and scalability IT and data center mangers need.
AMD FirePro™ technology is designed to meet the most demanding performance and reliability requirements. For Supercomputing clusters and HPC implementations powered predominantly by GPUs, AMD FirePro™ technology delivers industry leading peak double precision floating point performance1, and high performance per watt and per dollar.
Remote Graphics and VDI
IT departments are increasingly looking to centralized computing solutions to help prevent data leakage, ease network management, reign in time spent on system service and support, and better meet a variety end user computing needs. Centralized computing deployments, like Remote Graphics (1GPU per user/virtual machine model) or VDI (1 GPU supporting multiple users), essentially separate the computing experience from a physical machine using a client–server model – while delivering full computing experiences to users. However, each deployment type is designed to meet specific user needs.
