AMD has unveiled the AMD Radeon Pro W5700, a 7nm professional PC workstation graphics card. It delivers new levels of performance and advanced features that enable 3D designers, architects and engineers to visualize, review and interact with their designs in real time, according to AMD. The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 workstation graphics card features the high-performance, energy-efficient AMD RDNA architecture and GDDR6 memory to handle large models and datasets, and supports high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 technology.
“Today’s professionals need high-performance professional graphics hardware to better interact with their product concepts and make more informed decisions sooner in the design process,” says Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “We designed the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 to deliver significant performance gains in top design and manufacturing applications.”
Key capabilities and features of the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card include all the following:
AMD RDNA Architecture
The graphics card features a redesigned geometry engine and compute units, delivering up to 25% higher performance-per-clock and up to 41% higher average performance-per-watt than the previous-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture.
AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise’s intelligent power optimization is coupled with the power-efficient AMD RDNA architecture and 7nm process technology.
AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise delivers professional-grade quality, continuous performance improvements and robust security as well as industry-leading features, including AMD Remote Workstation5 that allows professionals to work virtually from anywhere with feature and performance parity with the workstation GPU on their desk6.
