The FirePro R5000 can remote up to four 1920x1200 resolution displays per user.

Amid the blitz of mobile products that will be announced this week, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) today introduced its FirePro R5000 remote graphics card. AMD's pitching its latest GPU offering as a flexible, manageable solution designed and engineered to power remote 3D graphics workflows and full computing experiences over IP networks. It does this by combining AMD's Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture with Teradici's PCoIP technology.

"IT professionals are looking for a secure and straight forward cloud-based graphics solution that delivers core functionality capable of adapting to meet each employee’s unique graphics needs," said David Cummings , senior director and general manager of AMD Professional Graphics. "The AMD FirePro R5000 meets these needs, delivering the flexibility, functionality, security and industry-leading graphics capabilities companies look for when deciding on a remote graphics solution."

It can't run Crysis, but it can transmit up to 300 megapixels per second and drive up to four 1920x1200 displays per end user, with refresh rates up to 60fps (requires compatible Teradici based client device, such as a Dell Wyse P45).

The card features 2GB of GDDR5 on a 256-bit interface and offers 102GB/s of bandwidth. Locally, it supports up to six display via two mini DisplayPort outputs. Max power consumption is rated at 150W.
