AMD has launched what it considers to be the first dual-GPU graphics card designed specifically for professionals users.
The Polaris-architecture-based Radeon Pro Duo is equipped with 32GB of GDDR5 memory that allows it to handle larger data sets, more intricate 3D models, higher resolution videos, and complex assemblies.
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 7100.2.
Ogi Brkic, general manager, professional graphics, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD, said: “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.”
The new card will be particularly beneficial for VR work, he added. .
