AMD recently announced the world’s first dual-GPU graphics card: Radeon Pro Duo. It is built on the Polaris-architecture and the capabilities of the Radeon Pro WX 7100 to deliver great performance and superior flexibility for creative professionals. The Radeon Pro Duo delivers up to 2 times faster performance compared with the Radeon Pro WX 7100 and up to 2 times faster performance than the closest competing professional graphics card, Nvidia Titan X.
It comes with 32GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory to handle larger data sets. Operating at a max power of 250W, the Radeon Pro Duo harnesses a total of 72 compute units (4608 stream processors) for a combined performance of up to 11.45 TFLOPS of single-precision compute performance on one board, and twice the geometry throughput of the Radeon Pro WX 7100. The Radeon Pro Duo enables professionals to work up to four 4K monitors at 60Hz, drive the latest 8K single monitor display at 30Hz using a single cable, or drive an 8K display at 60Hz using a dual cable solution.
“Today’s professional workflows continue to increase in complexity, often demanding that creators switch between a wide variety of applications to progress their work, pausing efforts in one application while computing resources are focused on another. We designed the Radeon Pro Duo to eliminate those constraints, empowering professionals to multi-task without compromise, dedicating GPU resources where and how they need them. It’s a continuation of our promise for Radeon Pro: to provide greater choice in how professionals practice their craft, enabling superior multi-tasking, accelerated applications, and powerful solutions for advanced workloads like VR,” said Ogi Brkic, general manager, professional graphics, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD.
The Radeon Pro Duo will be available at the end of May for $999.
