Sapphire Releases Passively Cooled AMD FirePro S10000

AMD’s FirePro S10000 is one of the highest end workstation graphics card you can get from AMD. The S10000 is a dual GPU card and Sapphire has just released a passively cooler version of the card. This means that it is completely cooled by large heatsinks and no fans.

So why passively cool a dual GPU card? Well since this is a workstation card that will most likely be used in server situations with multiple cards. Having multiple cards installed in a server will hinder airflow so having them all passively cooled then actively cooled by an external airflow system makes more sense.

The specifications of the card are as follows:

Memory: 3GB x2
Cores: 1792:112:32 x2
Fab: 28 Nm
Chip: Tahiti PRO

No word yet on pricing, but we expect it to be around the same as the normal FirePro S10000, which sells for around $3100. For those wondering the handle you see on the back is to help you install and remove it from multi-card configurations.
