Message Text: AMD has made available the Radeon Pro WX Series of graphics cards, the company's new workstation graphics solutions designed for creative professionals.

The Radeon Pro WX Series professional graphics cards are based on AMD's Polaris architecture featuring 4th generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) technology engineered on the 14nm FinFET process. The cards have future-proof monitor support, able to run a 5K HDR display via DisplayPort 1.4,2 include multimedia IP with support for HEVC encoding and decoding and TrueAudio Next for VR, and boast cool and quiet operation with an emphasis on energy efficiency. Each retail Radeon Pro WX graphics card comes with 24/7, VIP customer support, a 3-year limited warranty and now features a free optional 7-year extended limited warranty upon product and customer registration.

The series includes the Radeon Pro WX 5100, Radeon Pro WX 7100 and the Radeon Pro WX 4100 models.

Available November 10 at US$399 MSRP, the Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics cards promise to deliver the performance CAD professionals are looking for in a quiet small form factor. The graphics card is the first low-profile workstation graphics card to break the 2 TFLOPS single precision compute performance barrier, over 2.4X the performance of the competing NVIDIA fastest Quadro K1200, which offers up to 1 TFLOPS single precision. It also consumes nearly identical amounts of power.

With 4GB of GDDR5 memory and 16 compute units (1024 stream processors), users can drive four 4K monitors or a single 5K monitor at 60 Hz.

The Radeon Pro WX 5100 graphics card is the fastest 75W TDP workstation GPU. Available November 18th at US$499 MSRP, the Radeon Pro WX 5100 graphics card delivers up to 3.9 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance while using just 75 watts of power. It is equipped with 8GB of GDDR5 memory and 28 compute units (1792 stream processors) for 41 percent faster performance in Siemens PLM Software NX than competing cards in its class (Vidia Quadro M2000).

AMD claims that the flagship Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics card is the world's fastest single-slot workstation GPU10, ready for VR. Available November 10th at US$799 MSRP, the Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics card delivers 5.7 TFLOPS of single precision floating point performance in a single slot, and is designed to meet the needs of professional VR content creators. It is equipped with 8GB GDDR5 memory and 36 compute units (2304 Stream Processors), boasting up to 45 percent more performance than the NVidia Quadro M4000 card in Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS 2015.

AMD recently introduced Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Drivers, specifically designed to combine the power of AMD's new graphics offerings with the tailored needs of professional enterprise users. Professional users will benefit from stability, exceptional performance and productivity features. Radeon Pro Software Enterprise drivers deliver predictable software release dates, with updates issued on the fourth Thursday of each calendar quarter, and feature prioritized support. The drivers are certified in numerous workstation applications covering the professional use cases.

Following news that later this year AMD plans to open source its physically-based rendering engine, Radeon ProRender, AMD recently announced that a future release of Maxon's Cinema 4D application for 3D modeling, animation and rendering will support Radeon ProRender. Radeon ProRender plugins are available today for many 3D content creation applications, including Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya, and as beta plugins for Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks and Rhino. Radeon ProRender works across Windows, macOS and Linux, and supports AMD GPUs, CPUs and APUs as well as those of other vendors.
