SIGGRAPH 2017 - AMD were on fire at SIGGRAPH 2017, debuting their new Radeon Pro SSG and Radeon Pro WX 9100 graphics cards, both based on the new Vega GPU architecture and both featuring HBM2 tech, and HBCC.
The new Radeon Pro WX 9100 is AMD's new workstation graphics card that is built for today and tomorrows video and design/manufacturing workloads, featuring 12.3 TFLOPs of peak single preciion compute performance. Inside, the Radeon Pro WX 9100 features the full Vega 10 NCU, 16GB of HBM2 ECC memory, and AMD's next-gen High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC).
AMD's new Radeon Pro WX 9100 handles 8K 60Hz, 4K 120Hz and everything in between with its DisplayPort 1.4 HDR-ready connections for up to 6 displays.
The company was showing off a 4-way Radeon Pro WX 9100 system at SIGGRAPH, with each card worth $2199 - we have a system with $8796 worth of graphics cards. All four of these cards required AMD to use 2 x 1250W PSUs... and for the keen-eyed, you'll spot that AMD strapped a M.2 SSD to the first PSU, for reasons completely unknown to us.
