AMD Presents Radeon Pro Duo, A GPU With Double The Performance Of Best nVidia Card

With a processing power estimated at 16 Teraflops/sec, Radeon Pro Duo is the most powerful graphics card ever released for viewing virtual reality content. Recommended for consumers and developers alike, the new product comes with the Liquid VR SDK, a platform that touches all aspects of VR content creation: entertainment, education, journalism, medicine and cinema.

As its name says, AMD Radeon Pro Duo is a dual-GPU product, based on the AMD Fiji XT core, identical to that used in the single-GPU from R9 Fury X series. Basically, the new video card is a 2-in-1, totalling 8192 stream processors and a 8 GB HBM1 memory, accessed using its 2x 1024-bit bus.

The video output configuration is similar to that of the R9 Fury X model: three DisplayPort 1.2 connectors and an HDMI 1.4 connector. The power supply is ensured by three PCI-E 8 pin connectors, giving an output of up to 525W for powering the two GPUS. Considering the very high energy consumption, AMD has opted for a water cooling solution, directing the heat generated towards an external heatsink fitted on the side of the casing PC, hooked up to a 120 mm fan with variable speed.

According to preliminary performance tests, AMD Radeon Pro Duo delivers a level of performance almost double as the most powerful graphics card from NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX Titan Z, launched with a price of $3000 (reduced to $ 1499 in the meantime).

The new AMD video card Radeon Pro Duo will be available starting with the second quarter of 2017 at a recommended price of $1499.
