Today, AMD announced the Radeon Pro VII workstation graphics card, optimized to power demanding broadcast workloads, complex CAE simulations and HPC application development. AMD also released the new Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 driver, as well as updates for Radeon ProRender.
Radeon Pro VII
The Radeon Pro VII graphics card delivers exceptional graphics and computational performance, as well as innovative features, to power today’s most demanding broadcast and media projects, complex computer aided engineering (CAE) simulations and the development of high-performance computing (HPC) applications that enable scientific discovery on AMD-powered supercomputers.
The Radeon Pro VII graphics card offers up to 6.5 TFLOPS of double precision performance for demanding engineering and scientific workloads. 16GB of HBM2 with 1TB/s memory bandwidth and full ECC capability powers large and complex models and datasets smoothly with low latency. The GPU also comes equipped with AMD Infinity Fabric Link – a high-bandwidth, low-latency connection that speeds application data throughput by enabling high-speed GPU-to-GPU communications in multi-GPU system configurations – as well as high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 support.
