This week AMD announced the latest graphics card to be compatible with their new processors.
Called the AMD Radeon Pro Duo Polaris x2, the new card features the same Polaris-architecture of the Radeon Pro Duo but builds upon the Radeon Pro WX 7100 with a design that AMD has focused at media and entertainment.
But it is slightly more interesting than that. AMD says that the Radeon Pro Duo can deliver up to 2 times faster performance than the Radeon Pro WX 71003 and up to 2 times faster performance when compared to the “closest competing professional graphics card”, IE the Nvidia equivalent.
It also comes with a dual-GPU that allows it to multitask and perform well in advanced workloads according to AMD< who even stated that it would be the ideal solution for creating professional VR content.
They say that this is because the Radeon Pro Duo can use the power of these two GPUs to render out separate images for each eye, effectively increasing VR performance over any single GPU by up to 50% ACCORDING TO AMD.
It also comes with support for AMD’s Liquid VR tech, as well as the real-time engines from Unity and Unreal.
Ogi Brkic, general manager, professional graphics, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD explains more:
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.
