  • AMD FirePro W9100 Graphics Card
    Intended for high-resolution graphics rendering and hardware acceleration, the FirePro W9100 Graphics Card is built on AMD's Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. Hardware wise, this card packs 2816 Stream Processors coupled to 16GB of GDDR5 vRAM with a 320 GB/s bandwidth. This configuration results in 5.24 TFLOPS for single precision and 2.62 TFLOPS for double precision.

    The output panel of this card has six Mini DisplayPort terminals. Each Mini DisplayPort output can support up to DCI 4K resolution (4096x2160). Two Mini DisplayPort to Single Link DVI adapters are included and other separately available adapters for legacy displays are supported as well.

    For cooling, AMD implemented a blower-style cooler. This cooler uses a radial fan to force air through the card's heatsink and out of the case through the front of the card. This cooling configuration is good for workstation case configurations where space between computer components can be a concern.

    To optimize the card for professional workflows, AMD built in several of their technologies, these can be seen below.

    Eyefinity 2.0 Technology
    AMD Eyefinity 2.0 Multi-Monitor Technology allows for easy arrangement of multiple monitors in many different configurations with resolutions of up to 16K by 16K. The amount of monitors is only limited by the maximum number of outputs supported by the GPU. Eyefinity 2.0 is compatible with 3D images via DisplayPort 1.2.
    30-Bit Display Pipeline
    A Full 30-bit Display Pipeline allows for accurate color reproduction by maintaining a 10-bit resolution for each RGB component.
    CrossFire Pro Support
    AMD's CrossFire Pro works with compatible motherboards and allows you to install and combine up to four of the same GPUs to split the processing load and render graphics with improved frame rates and image quality in supported applications.
    Genlock/Framelock Support
    Using the separately available FirePro S400 Synchronization Module, Genlock and Framelock can be activated.

    Genlock: Enables 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 can arise when switching video sources that are not synced.

    Framelock: Synchronizes display output and 3D rendering across multiple graphics cards, resulting in a smooth output across multiple displays or video projectors to create a virtual canvas.
    GeometryBoost
    A hardware-level function which can automatically process two 3D "primitives" (triangles) per GPU clock cycle, increasing the speed in which the GPU can process complex 3D designs and real time visualization applications.
    Powertune
    Power management technology which provides direct control over GPU power usage. PowerTune dynamically adjusts clock speed to operate within the power parameters set by the user.
    ZeroCore Power Technology
    Shuts down the GPU when not in use to greatly reduce power usage while the card is idle.
    4K Support
    Using outputs capable of driving 4K and UHD displays, you can display graphics, games, and video in 4K resolution (4096 x 2160) for increased detail on 4K resolution displays.
    Projector Overlap Support
    Refine display alignment settings for configuring multiple high-resolution projectors.
    DDMA
    Discrete Digital Multi-Point Audio uses DisplayPort 1.2 terminals to output multiple, independent audio streams. Each audio stream can be sent to its own device.
    Bezel Compensation
    Compensate for bezel interference by stretching the image so it displays evenly across multiple displays, even monitors with thick bezels.
    ECC Memory
    ECC (Error Correcting Code) is designed to help ensure the accuracy of computations by correcting single or double bit errors caused by naturally occurring background radiation.
    HydraVision
    Manage your desktop displays in multi-monitor environments. HydraVision allows you to control the behavior of pop-up windows and dialog boxes, as well as customize multiple desktop window layers, and restrict application window placement across multiple desktops.
    D.O.P.P.
    Display Output Post Processing gives you the ability to adjust and/or capture the final output of the graphics card by reading the output directly from GPU memory. Adjustments that can be made include blending, warping, color correction, and other graphical computations that can be performed on the image. Transformations are hardware based, so latency is minimized.
    AutoDetect Technology
    When you open a new 3D program, the FirePro graphics drivers will be automatically configured for the best performance.

This SSD features 32 layer 3D V-NAND technology that offers twice the speed and density of traditional SSDs. This feature provides up to 100K IOPS random read speed and 90K random write speeds. Sequential read and writes are up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s. This SSD can also offer higher speeds by enabling RAPID mode. Besides offering performance, the SSD 850 Pro uses 50% less power than traditional hard drives and supports device sleep mode that uses only 2mW.
    V-NAND Technology
    Flash memory is stacked to 32 cell layers, on top of one another, to offer higher density and higher performance within a smaller footprint. The result is higher read and write performance in both sequential and random speeds
    RAPID Mode
    Magician software offers the option to enhance performance by using the computer systems DRAM memory as a cache. Enabling RAPID mode can double the read and write performance
    Reliable
    V-NAND technology was designed to handle a 40GB day workload, which after ten years equates to 150 Terabytes written.
    Power Management
    When compared to DDR2 or DDR3 cache memory used in other SSD drives, this drive uses LPDDR2 cache memory that offers higher performance while using 30 percent less power when active and 93 percent less power when idle
    Encryption
    Includes hardware AES-256-bit encryption that secures your data without the lost of performance when compared to software-base encryption. All 850 Pro SSDs are enabled with SED technology that keeps your data safe even if you lose your computer. Complies also with the TCG Opal v2.0 standards, PSID, and is compatible with IEEE 1667 protocol. You can also erase or initialize date using crypto erase service
    Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection
    Monitors and maintains the drive's temperature by cutting back the write performance to reduce power consumption that generates heat until the drive reaches back to a safer temperature
    One-stop Install Navigator Software
    Toolkit that includes an auto install guide that is a simple three-step installation process that copies all the data from your SSD or hard drive to the 850 Pro. Magician software is also available through the One-stop Install Navigator software that offers benchmarking, OS optimization, disk health status tracking and over-provisioning settings
