AMD FirePro™ W9100 workstation graphics cards are
designed for the next generation of 4K workstations. With
industry-leading graphics, compute power, and ultrahigh
resolution multidisplay capabilities, video, design, and
engineering professionals can work at a whole new level
of detail, speed, responsiveness, and creativity.
Unprecedented Memory Performance
The AMD FirePro™ W9100 workstation graphics card is the first to offer
16GB of ultrafast GDDR5 memory.2 It features a 512-bit memory interface
and 320 GB/s bandwidth. With massive memory performance at your
fingertips, you can load entire data sets or large 4K files into internal
memory. With DirectGMA support, direct access to the memory helps
ensure low-latency transfers to and from the GPU.
Unrivaled Compute Prowess, OpenCL™ 2.0 Ready
AMD FirePro™ W9100 graphics cards are designed to support OpenCL 2.0 4
Tap into the parallel computing power of its GPU and get up to 2.62 TFLOPS
of peak double-precision floating-point performance to accelerate computeintensive tasks.
Ultimate 4K Multidisplay Workflows
With the ability to support up to six 4K displays via six Mini DisplayPort
outputs,3 the AMD FirePro™ W9100 graphics card is the ideal single-GPU
solution for the next generation of ultra-high resolution visualization
environments. The AMD FirePro™ W9100 graphics card also supports 10-bit
color and low-latency connectivity via DirectGMA to several third-party SDI
Video I/O devices.
AMD FirePro™ W9100 Workstation Graphics
AMD Graphics Core Next architecture
Efficiently balances compute tasks with 3D workloads, enabling multitasking designed to optimize utilization
and maximize performance.
16GB GDDR5 GPU memory
With a 512-bit memory interface and 320 GB/s of memory bandwidth, users can edit 4K video, layer in multiple
effects, and color correct on the fly, or load massive assemblies and data sets and manipulate them in real time.
Multi-GPU support
Combine up to four AMD FirePro™ W9100 graphics cards in a single system and leverage the combined
processing power to turn your next-generation workstation into a personal supercomputer.
AMD Eyefinity multidisplay technology support
With six Mini DisplayPort outputs and support for DisplayPort 1.2, the AMD FirePro™ W9100 can actually drive
up to six 4K displays without DisplayPort 1.2 MST hubs³. The ability to run up to six 4K displays lets you visualize
every detail of your project in new and exciting ways. That’s nearly 50 million pixels at your command.
5.24 TFLOPS of peak single-precision floating-point
Helps speed up time required to complete single-precision operations used within simulations, video
enhancement, signal processing, video transcoding, and digital rendering applications where high performance
takes precedence over extreme accuracy.
2.62 TFLOPS of peak double-precision floatingpoint performance
Helps speed up time required to complete double-precision operations used within computational fluid
dynamics, structural mechanics, reservoir simulation, and aerodynamics applications, where numerical precision
is mission critical. AMD FirePro™ W9100 is the first graphics card to break the 2.0 TFLOPS double-precision
DisplayPort 1.2 and Adaptive-Sync support
Simultaneously outputs multiple independent audio streams and display content at resolutions beyond
standard HD (maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160). Adaptive-Sync enables FreeSync technology from AMD that
allows GPU control of display refresh rates for tear-free and jitter-free image quality when rotating models or
viewing video content.6
DirectGMA and SDI support
Removes CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks and optimizes communication between GPUs within a
system, and third-party devices like SDI I/O cards. DirectGMA bypasses any need to traverse the host’s main
memory, reducing CPU utilization, and avoid redundant transfers over PCIe®, resulting in high-throughput,
low-latency data transfers.
Framelock/Genlock support
Ensures accurate and consistent video synchronization to external sources or multiple GPUs in different systems;
requires ATI FirePro™ S400 synchronization module.
Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory support
ECC memory helps ensure the accuracy of computations by correcting single- or double-bit errors as a result of
naturally occurring background radiation. ECC enabled only on GPU memory.
1. AMD HD3D is a technology designed to enable stereoscopic 3D support in software applications such as Computer Aided Design and Digital Content Creation. Additional hardware (e.g.,
3D-enabled panels, 3D-enabled glasses/emitter, Blu-ray 3D drive) and/or software (e.g., Blu-ray 3D discs, 3D middleware, software applications) are required for the enablement of stereoscopic
3D. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies.
2. AMD FirePro™ W9100 features 16GB GDDR5 memory. Nvidia’s highest memory card in the market as of April 2014 is the Quadro K6000 with 12GB GDDR5 memory. Visit
content/PDF/line_card/6660-nv-prographicssolutions-linecard-july13-final-lr.pdf for Nvidia product specs. FP-90.
3. Requires 4K displays and content; performance dependent on file size. AMD Eyefinity technology supports up to six DisplayPort™ monitors on an enabled graphics card. Supported display
quantity, type, and resolution vary by model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase. To enable more than two displays, or multiple displays from a single
output, additional hardware such as DisplayPort-ready monitors or DisplayPort 1.2 MST-enabled hubs may be required. A maximum of two active adapters is recommended for consumer
systems. See for full details.
4. Support for OpenCL 1.2 enabled today; conformance expected. AMD plans to release OpenCL 2.0 drivers for enabled AMD FirePro™ W5100, W7100, W8100, and W9100 graphics cards in Q4 2014;
conformance testing is planned at that time. Previous-generation AMD FirePro™ products may not support OpenCL 2.0.
5. AMD FirePro™ W9100 delivers 2.62 TFLOPS peak double precision floating point performance, and Nvidia’s highest-performing card in the market as of April 2014 is the Quadro K6000 with 1.72
TFLOPS peak double precision. Visit for Nvidia product specs. FP-88.
6. FreeSync is an AMD technology designed to reduce or eliminate screen tears in games and videos by allowing the monitor’s refresh rate to be controlled by and synchronized to the graphics
card. Requires DisplayPort 1.2a-compliant monitors that support DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync and an AMD FirePro™ W5100, W7100, W8100 or W9100 graphics card with forthcoming FreeSyncenabled driver. Support for use with multiple monitors planned. Confirm supported technologies with system manufacturer before purchase.
