I still remember when AMD launched the Radeon Pro Duo nearly a year ago now, but it was aimed at the prosumer market, and priced rightfully so. Until now.

AMD and its various AIB partners have dropped the price on the Radeon Pro Duo from nearly $1500, to just $799 - not bad considering it's the fastest graphics card from Radeon Technologies Group. The Radeon Pro Duo rocks dual Fiji GPUs with 4GB of HBM1 each, for a total of 8GB of HBM1.

Each of the Fiji GPUs has 4096 stream processors (8196 total) - making the Radeon Pro Duo feature the highest GPU cores of any graphics card, ever. We have 64 ROPs and 256 TMUs per GPU, with each Fiji GPU running at 1000MHz.

AMD created the Radeon Pro Duo for 4K gaming and professional content creation, with 16 TFLOPs of 32-bit single precision performance, the highest of any graphics card on the market right now. Better yet, the Radeon Pro Duo is the first workstation graphics card to feature HBM1 technology, with the 4GB of HBM1 clocked at 500MHz, providing 512GB/sec bandwidth thanks to tis 4096-bit memory bus.

If applications are designed to support the dual GPUs, you can utilize the 512GB/sec from each set of HBM1 for a total of 1TB/sec for maximum performance.
