Press release, June 24; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 24 June 2010]

AMD has announced the launch of the AMD FireStream 9350 and 9370 GPU compute accelerators, targeting the commercial, scientific and academic research markets. With up to 2.64 teraflops of compute power, the new AMD FireStream accelerators are ideal for HPC, cloud and enterprise-scale deployments that require advanced performance for handling highly parallel, compute-intensive workloads, said AMD.

The AMD FireStream 9350 delivers two teraflops of single precision performance and 400 gigaflops of double precision floating point performance in a single-slot, 150W solution with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. The AMD FireStream 9370 delivers up to 2.64 teraflops of single precision performance and 528 gigaflops of double-precision performance, and includes 4GB of high-speed GDDR5 memory, at a maximum board power of 225W.

In addition, the AMD FireStream 9350 and 9370 both support standard application interfaces including OpenCL, DirectX 11 and OpenGL.

The AMD FireStream 9350 and 9370 GPU compute accelerators are scheduled to be available for purchase from AMD and its technology partners including One Stop Systems and Supermicro, beginning in the third quarter of 2010.
