AMD has just announced their new Radeon Pro Duo GPU, which is built upon their new Polaris architecture. Offering better performance over its predecessor which was based on AMD Fiji architecture. The new AMD Radeon Pro Duo sure is an impressive upgrade over its predecessor. Which now comes with a whooping 32 GB of GDDR5 memory. That according to the company can surpass the GTX Titan X in performance.
Currently Nvidia is on the top when it comes to manufacturing the best GPU on the market. Where AMD has challenged the green team from time to time. As a result we got to see a GPU worth $10,000 from the red team with its own SSD storage on board. This was all last year, the same year when AMD launched its first Radeon Pro Duo GPU. Which being a dual GPU solution provided far better performance compared to its competition at that time.
Same is not the case with the new Radeon Pro Duo GPU. Because this time around AMD has paid more attention on making it power efficient compared to its predecessor. AMD is targeting their new Radeon Pro Duo GPU towards professionals. Where the GPU is designed in such a way that it will benefit professionals in media an entertainment related workloads.
In terms of specs the new Radeon Pro Duo comes with 72 compute units and 32 GB of memory on board with 11.45 TFLOPS of performance. This is still a dual GPU solution like its predecessor. Where both the cores are clocked in at 1243MHz with a 256-bit memory interface. So what does all this relate to? Well the new Radeon Pro Duo can now support up to four 4k monitors at 60Hz, or a single 8k monitor can be used at 60Hz.
People who are interested can get the new AMD Radeon Pro Duo GPU at the end of May, for a price tag of $1000.
