Professional graphics are being used today in many areas and industries, including design and engineering, architecture, finance and media and entertainment. People in these respective fields look for solid support, stability and reliability which Radeon™ Pro WX workstation cards provide. With Radeon Pro WX, users get application certification and optimization on many of today’s popular design tools, regular enterprise driver updates and AMD backed support and warranty. This provides users with peace of mind knowing that they have a reliable product to use for their design workflows. The new Radeon™ Pro WX 2100 and WX 3100 are AMD’s latest offerings in this space, coming in at the entry-level price point, and offering the best performance in the entry-level class.1
Based on the efficient 14nm “Polaris” GPU architecture, both cards come equipped with 8 compute units (512 stream processors) to drive users’ workloads to the screen. Peak performance for these cards come in at 1.25 TFLOPS single precision compute. The primary difference between the two cards comes down to memory configuration. The Radeon™ Pro WX 2100 comes with 2GB of fast GDDR5 memory on a 64-bit interface, while the Radeon Pro WX 3100 has 4GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit interface.
Moving away from specs, let’s go to what matters – how the card performs in popular design applications. As we noted earlier, these cards are the fastest entry-level workstation cards, delivering up to 2x more performance than the previous generation AMD FirePro™ products2. When compared to the current entry-level offerings from the competition, the Radeon™ Pro WX 2100 delivers on average up to 20% faster performance than the NVIDIA Quadro P4003, while the Radeon™ Pro WX 3100 delivers on average up to 28% faster performance over the comparable NVIDIA Quadro P6004. Check out how they stack up in some of the most popular design applications below.
As you can clearly see, the Radeon Pro WX 2100 and WX 3100 are a great choice if you’re looking for an affordable, entry-level professional graphics card that offers faster performance over the competition and has all the workstation features you expect such as solid support, warranty, certification and reliability.
