As Media and Entertainment industry creatives work with increasingly higher-resolution content, the pressure on a workstation’s CPU has never been greater. By combining Avid’s resolution-independent and market-leading Media Composer® video editing software with a high-end professional graphics processor from AMD, you get the performance needed to drive these workloads to completion.
Working together, AMD’s powerful workstation class Radeon Pro GPUs combined with Avid’s renowned Media Composer deliver great graphics processing performance, helping to enhance the overall productivity of the user so that they can get their job done fast.
By offloading some of the processing responsibilities to the GPU, the performance of the workstation is increased dramatically, allowing the user to work more interactively and be more dynamic, especially when dealing with multi-layered Avid effects shots.
With the release of version 8.4, Avid Media Composer became resolution agnostic, allowing an editor or artist to choose any resolution right up to 8K. To truly benefit from this independence, a dedicated GPU is critical.
Thanks to its impressive specs – including 4096 stream processors, 16GB of HBC (High Bandwidth Cache) GPU memory with 484GB/s bandwidth and 12.3 teraflops single precision performance – an Radeon™ Pro WX 9100 GPU will make your workstation fly when running Media Composer, regardless of the chosen resolution.
AMD professional GPUs offer cutting-edge performance at a world class value. When dovetailing with Avid Media Composer, editors and visual effects artists can benefit from the power, speed and performance required to be more productive at a price point that allows more time and money to be dedicated to content creation.
Thanks to Avid’s AVX2 API, Media Composer can benefit from an increasing array of image processing plug-ins. When used in conjunction with the speed and power of an Radeon™ Pro graphics processor, those plug-ins work like lightning, significantly reducing the reliance on the CPU. This keeps the editor or artist working uninterrupted, ensuring creativity and productivity throughout the process and streamlining the image pipeline.
1. AMD Eyefinity technology supports up to six DisplayPort monitors on an enabled graphics card. Supported display quantity, type and resolution vary by model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase. To enable more than two displays, or multiple displays from a single output, additional hardware such as DisplayPort-ready monitors or DisplayPort 1.2 MST-enabled hubs may be required. A maximum of two active adapters is recommended for consumer systems. See www.amd.com/eyefinityfaq for full details.
