AMD Unveils FirePro W4300 Professional Graphics Card With 4GB of GDDR5 Memory
Today at Autodesk University 2015, AMD announced their FirePro W4300 graphics card that integrates a powerful GPU coupled with 4GB of GDDR5 memory.
Based on AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the card is specifically optimized for the best Computer-Aided Design (CAD) performance while featuring a low-profile design for installation in small form factor (SFF) as well as tower workstations. The card is aimed at organizations as it will provide them with a single, capable professional graphics solution to simplify their IT management.
“We designed the AMD FirePro W4300 specifically for CAD,” said Sean Burke, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “CAD users rely on AMD FirePro graphics cards to enable their application features to best visualize their designs, and now can continue to do so without having to compromise by using the latest energy efficient, small form factor workstations.”
The AMD FirePro W4300 is optimized for the latest CAD applications including Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor as well as Revit, Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS and CATIA, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, and many more. It will help professionals work efficiently with large geometry-intense models and GPU-accelerated features in their projects.
Further, users will be able to enhance productivity by visualizing their workflows across up to six displays, and up to 4K and 5K resolution.
Some of the key features of the AMD FirePro W4300 graphics card include:
- 4GB GDDR5 GPU memory
- AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology
- AMD FreeSync technology
- Four DisplayPort 1.2a
- OpenCL 2.0 support
- Maximum power consumption of 50W
- AMD PowerTune technology
- Certification on more than 100 different applications
The AMD FirePro W4300 professional graphics card is currently in production — contact local distributors for availability. Availability from major workstation OEMs is planned for 2016.
