AMD R5000 overview

  • 1Description

The AMD FirePro R5000 Remote Graphics Card is a server-side graphics card for one-to-one connection between the card, located in a data center, and a PCoIP client device. It is designed to give employees at remote client devices the same user experience as if they were connected directly to a workstation. The card uses PCoIP protocol to deliver high performance graphics, USB, and audio to remote client devices over standard network infrastructure. It allows IT departments to remote multi-display workstations for employees working in fields that demand graphics rich content or GPU-assisted parallel processing, such as video editing, 3D modeling, CAD, animation, engineering, design, financial services, or medical imaging.

The GPU in the FirePro R5000 features 2GB of GDDR5 RAM, a 256-bit memory interface, and has a memory bandwidth of up to 102GB/s. In addition, the integrated Teradici Tera2240 host processor compresses data from the GPU and is able to push it out at up to 300 megapixles per second to a compatible PCoIP-enabled client device such as the Dell Wyse P45.

The FirePro R5000 is designed to bring the multi-display workstation experience to employees using networked client devices. Via its Ethernet port, the card can remote up to four displays at a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 each. For higher resolution applications, it can also drive two displays at up to 2560 x 1600 resolution when using an adapter that combines two client ports into one. In addition, the card features two Mini DisplayPort outputs allowing it to drive one or two displays locally.

Streamlined System Management
Placing the hardware that does the heavy lifting in a centralized datacenter environment has many advantages from an IT administration perspective:
  • Cuts down on the space and energy requirements as well as noise levels in high-density work places such as trading floors
  • Allows Software and firmware updates to be managed directly, and in a unified fashion
  • Keeps equipment in one place for easy accessibly and quicker maintenance turnaround time
  • Puts redundant systems close by to minimized interruptions caused by server down-time
Teradici PCoIP Processor Technology
Thanks to the Tera2240 processor, which compresses video, USB data, and audio, the FirePro R5000 is capable of transmitting up to 300 megapixels per second using PCoIP protocol. It can support up to four displays per user on a single IP network connection when used in conjunction with a compatible client device such as a Dell Wyse P45. Because the processor is integrated into the graphics card there is no requirement for out of chassis cabling
Remoting Without Distance Limitations
Unlike fiber based alternatives, the FirePro R5000 is only subject to the distance limitations of the network that it is connected to. In addition, the system can use existing network infrastructure and does not require a dedicated network
Secure Computing
By encrypting video, USB, and audio data, the Tera2240 processor enables a secure connection between the server and the remote client device even over an otherwise insecure network. It supports 128-bit and 256-bit AES and NSA defined Suite B protocols. In addition, potentially insecure devices using I/O ports such as USB can be locked down to prevent information leakage
Login Anywhere
Employees using the system can just log into any compatible PCoIP client device on the network, rather than having to relocate a dedicated client device when they move
Popular API Support
Supports DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2, and Shader Model 5.0 APIs to allow GPU-aware applications to benefit from the acceleration provided by a dedicated graphics card, taking much of the workload off the server's CPU
Allows the GPU to process geometry data at a rate of twice per clock cycle resulting in double the rate of primitive and vertex processing compared to GPUs that do not possess GeometryBoost
AMD PowerTune
Dynamically regulates power to the GPU depending on usage for lower operating temperatures and less energy consumption; increasing power when needed or reduces it to close to zero when not in use. Additionally, the FirePro R5000 supports full Wake-on-USB, and Wake-on- LAN so that IT can wake up a system from a remote location, or power it down to conserve energy
PCI Express 3.0 x16 Support
Provides twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0; for example, an x8 PCI Express 3.0 slot has the same bandwidth as a x16 PCI 2.0 slot. In addition, the card remains backward-compatible with motherboards using earlier generations of PCI Express
