AMD Radeon Pro Duo New Pics Give a More Closer Look at The Fastest Radeon Yet
AMD`s flagship Radeon Pro Duo graphics card will be available to consumers by the end of this month. The card was announced last year and since then it has undergone significant design changes.
Initially, AMD wanted to make Radeon Pro Duo as an efficient card like Radeon R9 Nano, as well as wanted to make this a compact, with an emphasis on performance per watt. Instead, AMD let both Fiji GPUs on Pro Duo let lose and made a serious compute performance oriented graphics card which is Radeon Pro Duo.
That being said, folks over at Hardware Battle have just received their sample, and have uploaded pictures giving us a more closer look at the fastest Radeon yet.
The Radeon Pro Duo has dual Fiji GPUs integrated in it with both of them having graphics clock same as Fury series cards. Each of the two Fiji XT cores has 4096 shaders which add up to 8192 shaders on this graphics card.
Each core is equipped with 64 raster operation units and 256 texture mapping units with core clock maintained at 1000 MHz. That is how this card provides 16 Teraflops of 32 bit single precision compute which is currently the highest any graphics card has ever achieved.
Radeon Pro Duo is world`s first workstation class graphics card equipped with High bandwidth Memory (HBM) memory. This memory is clocked at 500 MHz to give a total of 512 GB/sec bandwidth.
Each Fiji XT core is equipped with 4 GB of HBM memory that operates at 4096-bit wide memory bandwidth. Theoretically speaking, this card can operate at 1 TB/sec bandwidth off of both chips under specific workloads.
The US$1500 Radeon Pro Duo is really a monster of a card in terms of performance and requires three 8-Pin PCI-Express power pins to work. This card requires almost 350 watts of voltage which is to be expected from a dual GPU graphics card.
What do you think of this card? Will Radeon Pro Duo beat GTX Titan out of the competition? Let us know in the comments.
