AMD Launches Dual-GPU Radeon Pro Duo for VR Professionals

Posted by Ercan Aslan 15/05/2017 PC News,

 

New professional graphics card are announced by AMD to artists working on 3D content for VR applications. The Radeon Pro Duo, boasts two separate GPUs, support for up to four 4K monitors or a single 8K monitor.

 

The graphics card was unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters Show that took place in Las Vegas. AMD said that the card had the ability to handle larger data sets, more complex 3D models, higher resolution video, and more complex assemblies that will appeal to businesses and creative professionals in the media, entertainment, broadcast, manufacturing, and design sectors.

 

 

Not Waiting for Vega

 

The card uses AMD’s Polaris architecture, a GPU built on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process the company first introduced last year with its Radeon 400 series graphics cards. The Polaris GPUs include the fourth-generation Graphics Core Next graphics instruction set.

 

The choice of using the Polaris architecture for a graphics card pitched may seem a little surprising. The Polaris architecture is designed more for energy efficiency than raw computing power. Later this year, AMD is expected to launch the Vega, a more advanced chip to serve as its flagship graphics card. 

 

However, AMD seems to be betting that the energy-saving qualities of the Polaris architecture will appeal to creative professionals as much or more than the Vega's expected computing superiority, which is not to say that the Radeon Pro Duo is underpowered. Its double GPU design should allow it to outcompete similar professional graphics cards, according to the company.

 

 

Divide and Conquer

 

Better multitasking seems to be the theme with two independent GPUs that will enable users to commit separate GPUs to different tasks, allowing them to switch between different applications more quickly and without interrupting resource-intensive workloads. 

 

That should make the card particularly attractive to creative professionals developing content for VR applications, the company said. With two GPUs, the Pro Duo will be able to render out separate images for each eye for faster creation of 3D assets and environments.

 

Besides the appeal offered by the dual-GPU divide and conquer strategy, the card also features 32 GB of memory to support working with larger data sets. AMD said the card will be available by the end of May, while the prices are not yet announced.
