AMD FireStream 9250 debuts for $999 this month

Posted on Tuesday, September 09 2008 @ 00:03:24 CEST by

AMD is expected to unveil the AMD FireStream 9250 workstation card later this month. GPU Cafe claims the new $999 RV770-based workstation graphics card will deliver roughly double the performance of the old FireStream 9170, at half the price.
Based on the RV770 GPU; FireStream 9250 packs in 800 Shader processors coupled with 1GB of 256-bit GDDR3 memory. FireStream 9250 is available in a single-slot form factor compared to its older sibling the dual-slot 9170. The compact size of the 9250 should enable it to fit in 1U servers as well as most desktop workstations.

The power consumption for 9250 has also gone up (150W) compared to the 9170 (100W) but the efficiency (GFlops/Watt) is still improved by 60% thanks largely to the huge jump in computational horse power. In terms of double-precision floating point performance, the FireStream 9250 is the fastest processor in the world.
