AMD Radeon Pro WX Series Run Down

Wednesday, 23 November 2016 12:02:41 Europe/London

AMD Radeon Pro WX Series

AMD has recently launched its most power-efficient & affordable workstation graphics cards to date, featuring the company's advanced Polaris architecture. The new AMD Radeon Pro WX Range consists of 3 graphics cards the Pro WX 4100, WX 5100 and WX 7100.

These latest graphics cards are the most advanced, VR-ready, energy-efficient professional workstation graphics solutions AMD have ever produces. According to a recent press release (organized by AMD), these AMD Radeon Pro WX Range graphics cards will certainly provide an improved performance and more efficiency for CAD (computer aided design) tasks.

A strong emphasise has also been put on the our AMD Radeon Pro WX7100’s support for Virtual Reality (VR), the incredible technology which is slowly emerging into the Design & Manufacturing and Entertainment & Media workflows. The new Polaris based GPU’s also offer support for 5K-resolution HDR (high dynamic range) monitors via DisplayPort 1.4 connector, AMD's TrueAudio Next VR-oriented sound processing system, and HEVC encoding & decoding (High-Efficiency Video Codec).

According to AMD's spokesperson, Ogi Brkic - "this Radeon Pro WX Range graphics cards brings a powerful and revolutionary shift towards the holistic approach of design & content creation." These cards are designed to empower the creators to prepare exceptional contents by intersecting inflection points with full creative autonomy. Obviously, this incredible opportunity will allow the users to easily create "next generation contents avoiding the pitfalls of general constraints just by using proprietary tools".

These graphics cards are taking the Polaris 10 & Polaris 11 based architecture and the company is tailoring this technology towards the workstation market. Also note, the AMD Radeon Pro WX Range graphics cards are the continuation of company's existing FirePro W series. Let's now take a close look at the individual graphics cards and their key features.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100 Series:

This series is featured to be the world's fastest and most powerful graphics cards for single-slot workstation. This graphics card is capable of handling both the design engineering and entertainment & media workflows. AMD are touting the our WX 7100 as the ultimate workstation solution for professional VR content creation. These cards are now available in our VR ready solutions.

Powered by Polaris 10 GPU, this card comes with a superior configuration that includes 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs, 8GB ultra-fast GDDR5 memory, and 128 TMUs. With these specifications - this series easily provides the much-needed performance that is paramount for today's workloads. Apart from that, the user can now enjoy a truly immersive and ultra-high resolution visual experience with Radeon Pro WX 7100 series, 4K displays, and AMD's LiquidVR Technology. Also note, LiquidVR Technology is designed to promote design realism and it maintains an ultra-immersive VR presence.

The card also comes with incredibly higher clock speeds (more than 5 TFLOPs) for better computing performance. Its built-in fourth-generation of GCN GPU architecture (Graphics Core Next) can perform arithmetic instructions and graphic operations in parallel. Plus, it even supports 10 bits colour for more detailed and utmost colour precision.
