AMD has announced the availability of the Radeon Pro WX Series of graphics cards, the company’s powerful, new workstation graphics solutions designed to meet the evolving needs of creative professionals. The Radeon Pro WX Series professional graphics cards are designed around a number of transformational inflection points that are dramatically changing the way content is created, including the rise of real-time game engines in professional settings, the emergence of virtual reality, the popularity of new low-overhead APIs (such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan), and the rise of open-source tools and applications.
The Radeon Pro WX Series professional graphics cards harness acclaimed Polaris architecture-based GPUs featuring 4th generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) technology and engineered on the 14nm FinFET process. The cards have future-proof monitor support, able to run a 5K HDR display via DisplayPort 1.4, include state-of-the-art multimedia IP with support for HEVC encoding and decoding and TrueAudio Next for VR, and boast cool and quiet operation with an emphasis on energy efficiency.
The Radeon Pro WX cards are designed and built by AMD with a consistent bill of materials and quality components. As a testament to AMD’s commitment to high quality products, each retail Radeon Pro WX graphics card comes with 24/7, VIP customer support, a 3-year limited warranty and now features a free optional 7-year extended limited warranty upon product and customer registration.
“Radeon Pro represents a powerful shift towards a holistic approach to design and content creation, giving our customers full creative autonomy, the opportunity to realize gains across the entire ecosystem, and the ability to create free of constraint from proprietary tools,” said Ogi Brkic, general manager, professional graphics, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “Our line of professional workstation graphics hardware, the Radeon Pro WX Series, is designed to empower the next-generation of exceptional content, intersecting new industry inflection points and enabling creators of all kinds to deliver the art of the impossible.”
Available November 10 at $399, the Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics cards delivers the exceptional performance CAD professionals are looking for in a sleek and quiet small form factor. The Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics card is the first low-profile workstation graphics card to break the 2 TFLOPS single precision compute performance barrier, over 2.4X the performance of competing cards in its class while consuming nearly identical amounts of power.7 With 4GB of GDDR5 memory and 16 compute units (1024 stream processors), users can drive four 4K monitors or a single 5K monitor at 60 Hz, a feature which competing low-profile CAD focused cards in its class can’t touch.
