|AMD Radeon™ Sky 500|
AMD Radeon™ Sky Series graphics and AMD RapidFire technology deliver low latency, high performance gaming experiences from the cloud to any device. AMD Radeon™ Sky 500 is the only single-slot card in this new Sky series. Each AMD Radeon™ Sky 900 graphics can support six or more high performance HD (720p) game streams at once at up to 30 FPS, allowing cloud gaming providers to deliver high quality gaming experiences to any device the gamer chooses--desktop, TV, tablet, notebook or smartphone.
28 nm GCN (Graphic Core Next) Architecture
The new 28nm GCN Architecture with more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in processing power and graphics performance.
- Each compute unit can execute instructions from multiple kernels at once
- Design for high-utilization, high-throughput, and multi-tasking
- Dual geometry Engines for faster triangle (“primitive”) processing
- First GPU family to fully support OpenCL 1.2 and DirectX 11
Full 30-bit Display Pipeline
With a full 30-bit display pipeline producing more than one billion colors (10-bit per RGB component). The AMD FirePro™ is ideally suited for applications that benefit from accurate color reproduction and superior visual quality.
This state of the art power management technology provides direct control over GPU power usage. Applications enjoy ultimate performance with dynamic clock optimization, while minimizing workstation energy usage .
AMD Zerocore Power Technology
AMD ZeroCore Power Technology is the AMD exclusive innovation. Up to 95% idle power reduction by shutting down GPU.
Quad HD display support (4K Support)
4K (4096x2160pixel) support for ultra-high-resolution display devices and advanced configurations through DisplayPort 1.2 and AMD Catalyst Pro drivers ensures future-forward compatibility for advanced workflows.
AMD RapidFire Technology
AMD RapidFire technology is a combination of hardware and software that enables cloud gaming partners to benefit from an open API that simplifies the manipulation of key hardware controls to provide HD visual quality, minimal latency and optimal network bandwidth resulting in a compelling and responsive gaming experience from any device over the internet. In line with AMD’s commitment to industry standard APIs, like OpenCL™, DirectX® and OpenGL, an industry standard API for cloud gaming can help to align the industry around one platform and drive continued innovations that benefit the industry at large.
With AMD RapidFire technology, AMD is also building in support for direct access to AMD Radeon™ Sky GPUs from virtual machines created by leading hypervisors including VMware® ESX/ESXi and Citrix XenServer™, providing greater density and more simultaneous game streams from a single server.
Server-friendly, low-profile design enables maximum device density and carefree maintenance. Cooled solely by internal server airflow, FirePro GPUs using this approach can effectively reduce complexity and maximize reliability for IT organizations requiring server-based visual computing.
