 Overview

Pure Virtualized Graphics

​The new AMD FirePro™ S7150 server GPU is the industry’s first hardware-based virtualized GPU. Equipped with AMD Multiuser GPU technology, this new GPU is designed specifically for virtualized environments. Easy to set up and manage, the AMD FirePro™ S7150 server GPU allows IT managers to address up to 16 users per GPU, with each user having an equal share of its performance. IT Managers are free to configure the AMD FirePro™ S7150 GPU to meet the needs of their organization, whether it’s for CAD and M&E workloads used by design professionals, or office applications that task workers utilize every day. Since no user licensing fees are required to use AMD’s virtualization solution, the AMD FirePro™ S7150 server GPU provides outstanding performance-per-dollar for GPU virtualization, and organizations can realize the economic benefits of desktop virtualization by moving physical server, devices to the data center. Fully featured and offering data security, the AMD FirePro™ S7150 GPU represents a new, easy and safe way of virtualizing your office environment.

 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.

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; 

OpenCL™ 2.0 Support

Helps professionalstap 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. 

Energy Efficient Design

AMD FirePro S7150 GPUs support unique power monitoring and management technologies, and have a maximum power consumption of 150 watts. AMD PowerTune1 technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage.

AMD PowerTune

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.1
