Update 12/20/2016 - This article has been updated with AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100 benchmarks and information. The Radeon Pro WX 7100 is currently the highest-end card in AMD's Pro WX series line-up.  AMD initially unveiled the Polaris-based Radeon Pro WX-series of professional workstation graphics cards all the way back in July at SIGGRAPH. Along with the initial announcement, AMD also disclosed that all of the cards would be built and sold by AMD exclusively, that the cards would carry 10-year warranties, and be backed by 24/7 VIP support. The FirePro brand would eventually be phased out as well, with the Radeon Pro moniker taking over as the company's pro graphics branding. Radeon Pro... Read more...
Over the summer, AMD announced that it was extending Polaris architecture into the professional market, for those who require CAD and 3D modeling workhorses, with the Radeon Pro WX Series. Today, AMD has revealed finalized specifications for the Radeon Pro WX Series along with pricing and availability. When the professional graphics cards were first announced in late July, AMD was targeting performance of greater than 2 TFLOPs, 4 TFLOPs, and 5 TFLOPs for the Radeon Pro WX 4100, WX 5100, and WX 7100 respectively. Now that the official specs are out, we’re seeing that AMD was able to hit its mark on two out of the three cards: Radeon Pro WX 4100: 16 compute units / 2.4 TFLOPs / 4GB memory / 128-bit...

AMD made quite an impact in the mainstream graphics card market with its Polaris-based Radeon RX 480 GPU. Based on AMD’s fourth generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the RX 480 features 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors and has a base clock of 1120 MHz. Peak compute performance is rated at 5.8 TFLOPs, and the RX 480 is available in 4GB or 8GB memory configurations. While the RX 480 may be good enough for gamers looking to get their fix with a few rounds of DOOM or Rise of the Tomb Raider, graphics professionals are a more discerning group that wants hardware with drivers certified for use in their tools of the trade: CAD and 3D modeling apps (rather than epic 3DMark benchmark...
