With a whopping 16 TFLOPS of compute on tap, the Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card remains one of the most powerful consumer graphics cards available for VR, content creation, and gaming.1 Artists and gamers alike have been building some building some truly droolworthy systems with this powerful piece of kit, but we want to help get these rigs to the next level with the power to 3D print a customized faceplate.

As with the Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card, the process for the Pro Duo is pretty straightforward for folks who know their way around a 3D printer:

  1. Grab the Pro Duo faceplate CAD design (.stp file).
  2. Fire up a compatible modeling app and tinker with our base design.
  3. Send to printing when you’re happy. Meanwhile, consider reading about our awesome Vulkan™ performance.
  4. Remove your card from the system and swap out the old faceplate with your new custom design.
  5. Reinstall the graphics card and enjoy!
