AMD launches dual-GPU Radeon Pro Duo with 32GB of GDDR5

AMD launches its Polaris-based Radeon Pro Duo graphics card, with 32GB of GDDR5

AMD has just launched its latest Radeon Pro Duo, a new dual-GPU graphics card based on the Polaris architecture. The new Radeon Pro Duo and its dual Polaris GPUs offer up to 11.45 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance, 4608 stream processors, 32GB of GDDR5 RAM (16GB per GPU) and a TDP of 250W.

 

 

If you remember back to Capsaicin 2016, AMD launched the original Radeon Pro Duo, but the 2017 refresh is a much better design, and $500 cheaper. The original Radeon Pro Duo launched for $1499, while the new Radeon Pro Duo is priced at $999. The original Radeon Pro Duo was also much more power hungry with its 350W TDP, while the refreshed one slaps 100W off, dropping to 250W.

This isn't a gaming card by any means, just like its predecessor, with the new Radeon Pro Duo joining the ranks of the other Radeon Pro graphics cards, like the insane Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics card. AMD's newly launched Radeon Pro Duo and its dual-GPUs are ready for intense professional/creation systems, where they can handle 8K content over a single DP1.4 cable (albeit, at just 30Hz). You can connect two DP1.4 cables for glorious, hair flying back in the wind 60FPS at 8K.
