As the performance of applications and processing technology advances, the industry continues to strive for the most photo-realistic designs possible. Designers who work on these projects usually alternate between creating their designs with one application, followed by a full render/ray trace cycle with another application, which can be time consuming and inefficient.

With the Radeon Pro Duo graphics card, 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.

Radeon™ Pro Duo Radeon™ Pro WX 7100

The Radeon Pro Duo, the world’s first dual-GPU professional graphics solution, can accelerate supported applications or plug-ins for many of today’s popular professional software such as Autodesk® Maya®, DaVinci® Resolve®, The Foundry® Mari® and Dassault Systèmes® SOLIDWORKS®. With 32GB of GDDR5 memory, and two GPUs working in parallel, the Radeon™ Pro Duo delivers up to 113% faster performance than the Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 in Autodesk® Maya® with the Radeon ProRender plugin 1, reducing the amount of time needed to achieve a users’ final design.​​

Bringing Tomorrow’s VR Workflows into the Hands of Creators Today

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 can leverage the power of two GPUs to render out separate images for each eye, increasing performance significantly compared to a single GPU.

Radeon™ Pro Duo Highlights

Colin Travers, a freelance colorist, discusses how the Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card is an ideal solution for creative content creators like him working in post-production.

Mike Schmit, director of software engineering at AMD, showcases the new Radeon™ Pro Duo powering Radeon™ Loom, which revolutionizes real-time 360 degree video stitching.

MAIN FEATURES

​4TH GENERATION GRAPHICS CORE NEXT (GCN) GPU ARCHITECTURE

​The Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card is based on the fourth-generation of Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture and, like its predecessor, can perform graphic and arithmetic instructions in parallel.

​UP TO 11.46 TFLOPS OF PEAK SINGLE-PRECISION FLOATING-POINT PERFORMANCE

​Helps speed up time required to complete single precision operations used within Video Effects and Rendering, Signal Processing, Transcoding and Digital Rendering applications where high performance takes precedence.

​MULTI-GPU SUPPORT

​Combine two Radeon™ Pro Duo professional graphics cards in a single desktop system and leverage the combined processing power for personal supercomputing or to work with multiple 4K video streams in real-time, layer in effects, make color corrections and edits on the fly.

​OPENCL™ 2.0 SUPPORT

​Enables professionals to tap into the parallel computing power of modern GPUs and multi-core CPUs to accelerate compute-intensive tasks in leading CAD/CAM/CAE and Media & Entertainment applications that support OpenCL. The Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card supports OpenCL 2.0, allowing developers to take advantage of new features that give GPUs more freedom to do the work they are designed to do.

​VULKAN®

​A powerful low-overhead graphics API that gives software developers complete access to the performance, efficiency, and capabilities of Radeon™ Pro GPUs and multi-core CPUs.

​32GB GDDR5 MEMORY

​Allow users to work at extreme levels of speed and responsiveness. With a 256-bit memory interface, users can edit 4K video, layer in multiple effects and color correct on they fly, or load massive assemblies and data sets and manipulate them in real time.

​10-BIT COLOR

​Native support for 10-bits per color channel for color-critical tasks. Driving an effective 30-bits per pixel, the Radeon™ Pro Duo is great for any workload requiring that level of detail and color precision.

​AMD LIQUIDVR™ TECHNOLOGY

​AMD is making VR as comfortable as possible by lowering motion-to-photo latency. Enhance design realism and maintain ultra-immersive VR presence. Enjoy liquid-smooth visual performance and ultra-high frame rates – and cross over to the other side of realistic virtual environments and interaction. 2

​HDR READY

​High dynamic range (HDR) capability enables visuals that closely match what is familiar to the human eye. 3

​GEOMETRYBOOST

​Allows the GPU featured on the Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card to provide ultra-high geometry performance and ensure smooth handling of complex models.

​RADEON™ VR READY CREATOR

​Enable extraordinary performance and world-class innovation with Radeon™ VR Ready Creator products like the Radeon™ Pro Duo. Empower VR content creators and experience designers with amazingly powerful and capable development tools in the AMD LiquidVR™ SDK. 2(Download the SDK here)

​PARTIALLY RESIDENT TEXTURES (PRT)

​PRT can utilize absolutely enormous texture files, up to 32 terabytes large, with minimal performance impact. PRT accomplishes this by streaming small bits of these massive textures into the GPU as needed, giving compatible applications a virtually endless supply of unique texture data.

AMD EYEFINITY TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT

​Industry-leading multi-display technology enabling highly immersive and unrivaled multi-tasking across up to four displays 4, powered by a single Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card.

SUPPORT FOR 4K, 5K AND 8K DISPLAYS

​With three discrete DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3/HDR Ready 5 outputs, and one HDMI 2.0 output, the Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card can drive up to four 4K displays at 60Hz or one 5K or 8K display at 60Hz.

DIRECTGMA AND SDI SUPPORT

​Removes CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks, and optimizes communication between GPUs within a system and third party devices like SDI I/O cards. DirectGMA bypasses any need to traverse the host’s main memory, reducing CPU utilization, avoiding redundant bus transfers, and resulting in high throughput, low latency data transfers.

4K ACCELERATED ENCODE/DECODE

​Multi-stream hardware H.265 HD encode/decode for power-efficient and quick video encoding and playback. 6

ENERGY EFFICIENT DESIGN

Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card supports unique power monitoring and management technologies, and has a maximum power consumption of 250 watts TDP board power. AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle. 7
