AMD has a new graphics card on deck to handle rigorous workloads, and the company is billing it as the world’s first dual-GPU aimed at the professional market. The Radeon Pro Duo features dual Polaris GPUs and according to AMD makes a perfect fit for “media and entertainment, broadcast, and design and manufacturing workflows”. The Radeon Pro Duo is in essence two Radeon Pro WX 7100 GPUs (5.7 TFLOPS) incorporated into a single board. As you might expect, combined performance scales nicely to 11.45 TFLOPS. And instead of just 8GB of GDDR5 RAM onboard (as you would find with the Radeon Pro WX 7100), the new Radeon Pro Duo drops the hammer with 32GB of GDDR5. Whereas a single Radeon Pro WX 7100 draws...

You wouldn’t be alone if you somehow forgot about AMD’s Radeon Pro Duo; the exotic graphics card that came bearing two 28nm Fiji GPUs, 8GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) and a high-end, closed-loop water-cooling system to keep everything cool. The Radeon Pro Duo is able to put down some impressive benchmark scores (thanks to its 16 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance), but it was largely overshadowed by NVIDIA’s looming (at the time) Pascal graphics family, particularly the GeForce GTX 1080 and Titan X. And we can’t forget that $1,499 price tag. Thankfully, AMD is giving well-to-do gamers something to celebrate about thanks to an epic price cut for the Radeon Pro Duo. Rather than the... Read more...

After almost a year of sneak peeks and strategic demos, AMD has finally begun shipping its dual-Fiji GPU powered graphics card, the Radeon Pro Duo. AMD is positioning the Radeon Pro Duo as a card for “gamers who create, and creators who game” and for budding VR developers in need of some monstrous compute performance, though the simple fact that it is packing a pair of AMD's current top-end GPUs will make it interesting to hardcore gamers with big budgets as well.If you would like a refresher on the underlying technologies at work on the Radeon Pro Duo, we have a few articles we'd recommend perusing.

Today, AMD is holding its “Capsaicin” webcast in which it is talking about all of its latest initiatives in the graphics realm, including virtual reality (VR) and a powerful graphics card that we’ve been talking about for months.

High-end VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, both of which are due out shortly, will change the way we interact with media content and the way we play current and future games. But what about the potential for VR outside the gaming space? One potential is in the education sector, so AMD has partnered up with powerhouse developer Crytek.... Read more...
