Divide. Accelerate. Create.
Professional VR content creation is one of the design industry’s major inflection points and is becoming more commonplace in today’s workflows. From small design shops to big Hollywood studios, the Radeon™ Pro Duo professional graphics card gives professionals the power they need to design, render and simulate in real-time with today’s increasingly complex workloads. We’ve already seen positive feedback from the industry. Jonathan Winbush, Founder and Creative Director of Winbush.tv, recently had the chance to test out the new Radeon Pro Duo vs. a comparable single GPU, the Radeon Pro WX 7100. Here is what he said:
“In developing 4K 360 VR content, the biggest hurdle is the tech, because as an artist, I just want to create and not worry about limitations of the hardware. With the new Radeon Pro Duo, I immediately saw a speed difference of up to 2X, allowing me to push the boundaries of my projects without having to compromise on creativity or productivity.”1
The Radeon Pro Duo doesn’t stop at professional VR design. Other applications and plugins also support multi-GPU acceleration, where users will find rendering times significantly improved with the Radeon ProRender plugin that is supported across many applications like Autodesk® Maya®, and SOLIDWORKS.
You may be thinking, that’s great news – but what about applications that don’t support multi-GPU acceleration? We recognize that not all applications will support multi-GPU acceleration. In these cases, users will still benefit with the Radeon Pro Duo. Designers are often striving for the most photo-realistic designs possible, and those who work on these projects usually alternate between doing design on one application, followed by a full render/ray trace cycle on another application, which can be time consuming and inefficient.
With the Radeon Pro Duo, designers can now simultaneously use two software packages, with one GPU dedicated to the functions of each application concurrently. Live content creation using the first GPU, with real-time rendering and/or ray tracing on the second GPU is now possible. The user can benefit from shortened design cycles or is now able to do more design iterations within the allotted design window for an overall better outcome.
With certifications on some of today’s popular design applications, a 2-year limited warranty and 24/7 technical support, the Radeon Pro Duo is a great choice for your professional design needs. Unleash your creativity and create without constraint.
