AMD also updated its line of dedicated video cards FirePro
Along with the release of new APU for the first time will be branded FirePro to an integrated chip , amd also gave a drink to their models PCIe video card targeted for professional, specifying the previously announced ( twice ) arrival of the W9000 and W8000 high-end, next to the W7000 and W5000 mid-high range.
Making use of PCIe 3.0, like all new models, the W9000 stands as the best performance, capable of yielding 4.0 Tflop in single precision (SP) and double precision 1.0 Tflop or floating point (DP), thanks to 6GB GDDR5 memory interface (bus) and a 384-bit graphics core Graphics Core Next (GCN)-Islands-Southern, showing a maximum TDP of 274W.
AMD FirePro follows the W8000, which amounts to 3.23 Tflop performance in SP and 806 GFLOP in DP, with 4GB of GDDR5 memory and 256-bit bus with a TDP of less than 225W. And finally, W7000 and W5000 appear, showing no feathers of his two older brothers, but aim to deliver professional performance-high range almost certainly at a price much lower than the W9000.
Because yields 2.4 Tflop W7000 (SP) and 152 GFLOP (DP), while the W5000 1.3 Tflop (SP) and 79.2 GFLOP (DP), with 4GB and 2GB of GDDR5 memory bus respectively in a 256-bit.
How much? USD $4,000 for the FirePro W9000, $1,600 for W8000, $900 for W7000 and $600 for W5000.
