AMD presents FirePro R5000 professional graphics card

Advanced Micro Devices has released a new professional graphics card known as FirePro R5000. While there are many other AMD professional graphics cards this one differs from the rest by being able to send video to remote client devices using standard network interfaces.

It is exactly this capability that allows the AMD FirePro R5000 graphics card to connect to up to four screens with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels or up to two displays with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The rest of the hardware includes a Pitcairn LE GPU with 768 stream processors and a clock speed of 825 MHz, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory at 3200 MHz accessed over a 256-bit bus and 102.4 GB/sec of bandwidth, one Ethernet port and two mini-Display ports. The AMD FirePro R5000 needs 150 watts of power.

As with most other new products out there pricing was not released but given the professional nature of the FirePro R5000 its price isn’t likely to be low.
