​​The Best GPU for Compute Just Got Better

Accelerate your most complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, and witness the power of the world’s first 32GB server GPU, the AMD FirePro™ S9170. Stay ahead of the curve by taking advantage of OpenCL™ 2.0, the open programming standard for general-purpose computations on heterogeneous systems. The AMD FirePro™ S9170 is equipped with ultra-fast, industry-leading 32GB of GDDR5 memory, the most memory of any professional server GPU available today1. Packing up to 2.62 TFLOPS of peak double precision and 9.53 GFLOPS/w double precision performance, supercomputers that are equipped with FirePro S9170 GPUs can achieve massive compute performance while optimizing available power budgets.



​5.24 TFLOPS of Peak Single Precision

Helps speed up time required to complete single precision floating point operations used within Simulations, Video Enhancement, Signal Processing, Video Transcoding and Digital Rendering applications where high performance takes precedence over accuracy.

2.62 TFLOPS of Peak Double Precision

Helps speed up time required to complete double precision floating point operations used within Computational Fluid Dynamics, Structural Mechanics, Reservoir Simulation and Aerodynamics applications, where numerical precision is mission critical.

Full Throughput Double Precision

AMD FirePro S9170 server GPUs feature full throughput double precision. Unlike competing server cards that are not optimized for double precision, AMD FirePro S9170 cards offer the most double precision performance2, completing compute-intensive tasks faster than ever before.

32GB GDDR5 Memory

Equipped with 32GB of GDDR5 memory, the FirePro S9170 can accelerate memory-intensive applications and process larger and more 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; supported on GDDR5 memory only.

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 S9170 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 S9170 GPUs support unique power monitoring and management technologies, and have a maximum power consumption of 275 watts. AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle3.

AMD PowerTune

AMD PowerTune Technology3 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.
