AMD --
AMD announced the FirePro S9170 this morning as the first server graphics card with 32GB of memory for high performance compute.

This single-GPU GCN solution boasts 32GB of GDDR5 memory and delivers up to 5.24 TFLOPS of single-precision compute and 2.62 TFLOPS of double-precision compute performance. OpenCL 2.0 is supported while OpenMP and OpenACC developer tools are forthcoming.

More details via the press release. This should be one nice card for those with serious workloads able to take advantage of OpenCL. While the OpenGL stack in the Catalyst Linux driver is easily criticized, the compute abilities of the Catalyst Linux driver aren't to be dismissed -- it actually works, supports OpenCL 2.0, and performs well. There are some AMD/NVIDIA OpenCL Linux benchmarks done recently within this review.
