AMD held a live event and webcast yesterday to announce their new FirePro series of professional graphics cards. They kicked things off with the announcement of the FirePro W9100 graphics card, which is based on the Hawaii GPU architecture.
The AMD FirePro W9100 makes use of the full Hawaii GPU so it has 2816 stream processors, 176 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The card features 5.24 TeraFLOPS of single-precision, and 2.67 TeraFLOPS of double-precision performance. The card will be equipped with 16GB of memory and set to directly compete with NVIDIA’s Quadro K5000.
The FirePro W9100 has six mini-DisplayPort outputs, each of which supports a 4K display. Right now the rest of the specifications of the card are unknown as well as the price. We can guess it will be around $4000 since that is what they sold the FirePro W9000 card at.
