Turn a barebones PC into a graphics powerhouse with AMD's new FirePro server GPUs

AMD's FirePro S7150 and S7150 x2 server GPUs boost graphics processing on remote desktops with virtual GPUs

However, the ability to provision virtual GPU workloads among multiple GPUs could come in the future, Wong said.

The S7150 has 2,048 processor cores, 8GB of GDDR5 memory and draws 150 watts of power. The S7150x2 is two GPUs in one package, has 16GB of GDDR5 memory and draws 265 watts of power. The GPUs are made using the 28-nanometer process.

AMD's top competitor, Nvidia, has its own technology in which server-based graphics resources are assigned to virtual machines. The technology is designed for Nvidia's proprietary CUDA parallel programming language.

AMD later this year expects to release new FirePros based on Polaris architecture, which the company announced at CES.
