Accelerate your simulation with AMD FirePro and OpenCL™ technology

The AMD FirePro W-series of professional graphics cards uses the latest generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture from AMD. This design efficiently balances compute tasks with 3D workloads, enabling multi-tasking that is designed to optimize ​utilization and maximize performance.

In order to leverage the massive parallel processing power of the GPU for engineering analysis and simulation, AMD graphics cards are also optimized for OpenCL™.

Enabled by OpenCL™, the AMD FirePro™ GPU can be used to help accelerate calculations in engineering analysis and simulation,– tasks traditionally carried out only by CPUs. For example, the time taken to perform a structural and multi-physics analysis in the OpenCL™ version of Abaqus from Dassault Systemes SIMULIA can be cut significantly using a high-end AMD FirePro™ Professional graphics card, like the AMD FirePro W8100 or W91003.

​AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology and support for 4K displays

AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology enables an AMD FirePro graphics card to drive three, four and even six monitors via DisplayPort 1.2 from a single graphics card, at up to 4K x 2K resolution for each output. View your designs at ultra-high resolutions for increased design accuracy realism and better insight. Or, you can speed up your workflow by using your extra screens to view additional applications, running CATIA and other DS applications simultaneously.1
