You are invited to AMD’s News Conference in Sunnyvale, CA (March 26)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

Yesterday we announced a news conference to preview groundbreaking new solutions for the Professional Graphics market; here is the link to the official press release: http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/amd-to-host-2014mar12.aspx

As mentioned in the announcement the conference will be hosted by our Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Graphics Business Unit, Matt Skynner and takes place in Sunnyvale, California on Wednesday March 26 at 9:15am PDT.

Everyone is welcomed! I’d like to extend an invitation to you to attend this event in person

If you'd like to attend send me a PM to RSVP and make sure to include the following information:

• Your first and last name
• Your email address
• Whether you are a member of the press (a journalist); if so, please provide the name of the company

Please note we will not cover the cost for flight or hotel accommodations. Seats will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis; I expected them to fill quickly, so if you are interested please RSVP at your earliest convenience.

The live webcast will be accessible on our Investor Relation homepage: http://ir.amd.com and will be available about four hours after the conclusion of the event.

I will make sure to provide you the address once you have RSVP’ed.wink.gif

Bump for the people on OCN that are in CA or have the means to get there.

Is this going to be the official thread for the event?

Is there going to be a live feed that works?

Random guesses on feed content:

Firepro W10000 or rumored Firepro W9100 naming for a Hawaii based Firepro with 8GB VRAM , to counter the K6000 powerhouse.

Mac Pro touting.

Specviewperf12 price/performance touting (not accurate for Solidworks 2014 SP2)
like so Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


or




Putting some excuses for specviewperf 11 performance like the AMD whitepaper (http://www.amd.com/us/Documents/SPECviewperf_12_AMD_Whitepaper.pdf)
Quote:
We have seen that SPECviewperf 11 results did not correlate well with expected raw graphics
card performance or benchmarks testing the actual applications traced by SPECviewperf. Is SPECviewperf 12 any better? It is substantially different than its predecessor. After SPECviewperf 11, the benchmark was re-architected to decouple the actual tests and data from the test framework. This design provides for several benefits. First, it allows for viewsets (the individual tests) to be submitted individually. SPECviewperf 11 was created by a single member of the SPEC committee with little ability for other committee members to contribute or review the benchmark dataset source or raw trace data. SPECviewperf 12 consists of viewsets submitted from several committee members, each submitting full source code for the tests that can be easily reviewed by all committee members. Additionally, SPECviewperf 12 traces are taken from the latest versions of the applications.
SPECviewperf 11 was released in 2010, with software vendors commonly releasing update versions on an annual basis. SPECviewperf 11 traces are three or more versions behind the currently shipping versions of those applications. SPECviewperf 12 also includes the first DirectX test with traces taken from the Autodesk Showcase® application. There are also tests designed to emulate workloads for energy and medical volumetric viewing applications. These viewsets are entirely synthetic; they were not traced from any specific application, being submitted as original source code by NVIDIA.
If we compare the two graphics cards discussed earlier, the AMD FirePro™ W5000 and the NVIDIA Quadro K2000, looking at the results from SPECviewperf 12 and any corresponding SPECapc application benchmarks, we can see if SPECviewperf 12 is doing a better job with respect to its scores corresponding to the application tests than SPECviewperf 11.

Unaddressed issues:
* Garbage performance in AutoCAD per watt compared to Geforce (not Quadro) , the biggest architecture program
* No ANSYS Acceleration , the biggest simulation program
* R9 290 and R9 280X having greater Specviewperf 12 performance (their favorite benchmark now) than the Firepro W9000 , albeit with artifacting
* Higher Autodesk Inventor benchmark performance on Radeons than Firepros

Thank you Zemco

There will be a live webcast and it will work.

(Did you have issues viewing past casts? To be honest with you there could be technical issue, or last minute surprises - I can't predict the future tongue.gif...unfortunately these things can happen to anyone; right now we're all set and will be prepared).

Yes, we can use this post as the official thread for the event, I hope it's okay with the OCN moderators

GPU 14 Tech Day Event was a disaster IIRC

Trueaudio for most of the GPU presentation, no details on R9 290X (5 Tflops, 4 mil triangles, Firestrike, ok) & 1 hour delay.

You're telling me that AMD wants Frickfrock999 at their party?

All day?

AND ALL NIGHT?

Webcast up http://www.media-server.com/m/go/AMDFirePro

skip to 12:00
New (Hawaii GL?) Firepro W9100

> 2 Tflops FP64.
(1/2 of fp32?)


They're introducing a new ISV program "Ultra Workstations" with a spec list.


So AMD gimped Radeon R9 290 series on purpose to 1/8 FP64
