The FirePro S10000 video card was launched on November 2012. This video card uses a graphic processor with 2 x 1792 stream processors that run at a speed of 825 MHz. The FirePro S10000 comes with 2 x 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory. This graphic card memory can achieve a bandwidth of 2 x 240 GB/s.
Performance And Power
The FirePro S10000 graphic card can deliver a single precision computing power of 2 x 2956.8 GFLOPS. Furthermore, this video card can achieve a pixel fill rate of 2 x 26.4 Gigapixels/s and a texture fill rate of 2 x 92.4 Gigatexels/s. The maximum power consumption of the FirePro S10000graphic card is 375 W.
The FirePro S10000 uses a PCI-E 3.0 x 16 bus interface. Furthermore, the FirePro S10000 supports up to Up to 5 displays monitors and can support the following display ports: "4 x Mini DisplayPort, Dual-Link DVI".
As per the software support, it can support the following programming interfaces and libraries: " DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2, Shader Model 5.0 ". OpenGL is a cross language and multi-platform application programming interface for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. OpenGL is used to interact with a GPU to harness Hardware-accelerated rendering and eliminates the need to recompile shaders making it an efficient and performance oriented standard. Microsoft DirectX is an Application programming Interface for the Windows operating systems which Integrates well with AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. The Microsoft DirectX 10 is a significant step in 3D graphics. It features a highly optimized runtime, powerfull geometry sharders, and many other features. The Microsoft DirectX 11, introduced with Windows 7, brings numerous improvement over its precedessor DirectX 10. It is designed to be more efficient, supports sophisticated shading and texturing techniques and levearage the use of multi processors, resulting in smoother 3D animations. The open computing language (OpenCL) is programming interface used for general purpose programming across CPUs and GPUs and other processors. The standard gives developers the portability and efficiency of heterogeneous processing platforms.
