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
AMD Eyefinity 2.0 Multi-Monitor Technology
The next generation of AMD Eyefinity multi-monitor control technology is here, featuring all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations.
AMD Eyefinity 2.0 enables:
Easy multi-display setup and customization
Virtually unlimited number of display devices
Stereo 3D-multi-display stereoscopic 3D support via DisplayPort 1.2
16K * 16K maximum display group resolution-output up to 268 megapixels per GPU
AMD Stream technology is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that enable AMD graphics processors (GPU), working in concert with the system’s central processor (CPU), to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics. This enables better balanced platforms capable of running demanding computing tasks faster than ever.
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.
Genlockenables video and graphics feeds from various devices – such as cameras, recorders, mixers, keyers and more – to lock to an externally generated signal,helping avoid jumping, flicker or scan lines that commonly arise when switching video sources. Framelocksynchronizes display output and 3D rendering across multiple graphics cards resulting in a smooth output across multiple displays or video projectors to create a smooth virtual canvas.
* To activate Framelock/Genlock function, ATI FirePro™ S400 Synchronization Module is required.
A unique hardware-level function that automatically processes two 3D “primitives” (triangles) per GPU clock cycle. The result is incredibly fast geometry processing performance, ensuring smoother user interaction when working with complex 3D design projects and real-time visualization applications.
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.
Projector Overlap Support
Easily refine display alignment settings when configuring multiple, high resolution display devices or projectors.
Stretch display resolutions to prevent bezel interference and image distortion when displaying a single large image across multiple displays.
Partially Resident Texture (PRT)
Graphics memory behaves as a hardware-managed cache. Data can be streamed in on demand.
Video Codec Engine (VCE)
Powerful, “fixed-function” multi-stream hardware dramatically improves the performance of H.264 HD encoding for a range of applications and pipelines.
Enables low latency, high-bandwidth peer-to-peer data transfers between devices on host systems’ PCI bus and AMD FirePro™ GPUs. Devices supporting DirectGMA can write directly into the local memory of FirePro GPUs -and vice versa. This functionality can dramatically reduce latency and host system “overhead” as needed for real-time broadcasting and other types of high-speed communications applications.
Error Correcting Code (ECC) Memory
Correct single bit memory errors in hardware
ECC memory maintains a memory system effectively free from single-bit errors: the data read from each word is always the same as the data that had been written to it, even if a single bit actually stored, or more in some cases, has been flipped to the wrong state. Some non-ECC memory with parity support allows errors to be detected, but not corrected; otherwise errors that may occur are not detected.
Electrical or magnetic interference inside a computer system can cause a single bit of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) to spontaneously flip to the opposite state. It was initially thought that this was mainly due to alpha particles emitted by contaminants in chip packaging material, but research has shown that the majority of one-off ("soft") errors in DRAM chips occur as a result of background radiation, chiefly neutrons from cosmic ray secondaries, which may change the contents of one or more memory cells or interfere with the circuitry used to read/write them.
Use HydraVision to manage desktop displays and workspaces in multi-display environments:
Explicitly set the behavior of pop-up windows and dialogs in different applications though Desktop Manager.
Provide multiple layers of the desktop workspace through Multi Desktop.
Restrict application window placement across multiple desktops through HydraGrid.
Display Output Post Processing (or D.O.P.P) provides software applications with access to a FirePro GPU’s framebuffer before content reaches the card’s signal output stage. This functionality enables ISVs and OEMs with added flexibility and performance they can leverage to create new, exciting and innovative methods for creating and displaying visual content.
AMD FirePro™ products incorporate a unique AutoDetect technology. As users open new 3D applications, or move between them, optimized AMD FirePro™ graphics driver settings are automatically configured for maximum performance, no matter what the user’s workflow demands.
