AMD has just announced a new graphics card at SIGGRAPH 2018, with the new Radeon Pro WX 8200 workstation graphics card set to ship to customers in September.
The new Radeon Pro WX 8200 is a cut down version of the flagship Radeon Pro WX 9100 except it's under half the price at $999 compared to $2200 of the WX 9100. How is the WX 8200 half the price of the WX 9100? Well, for starts we have 8GB of HBM2 compared to 16GB of HBM2 on the WX 9100, while the WX 8200 has also had its stream processors sliced down to 3584 compared to 4096 on the WX 9100.
AMD has used the same Vega 10 GPU on the same 14nm node, with 10.8 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance and 21.5 TFLOPs in half precision. Comparing this to the WX 9100 and its 12.3 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance, and 24.6 TFLOPs of half precision.
While the Radeon Pro WX 8200 has less stream processors, the HBM2 memory clocks are slightly faster at 2.0Gbps compared to 1.89Gbps on the WX 9100.
AMD's new Radeon Pro WX 8200 will open for pre-order on August 13 with Newegg, with cards shipping in September.
