AMD has been teasing this graphics card for the past few weeks, but yesterday at their “Capsaicin” event they official unveiled the Radeon Pro Duo graphics card. As AMD puts it the card is designed for “creators who game, and gamers who create”. The card of course is a dual-GPU card that has a pair of 28 nm “Fiji” chips, the same ones that are one on the R9 Fury X and R9 Nano.
The card will be positioned sort of in the gret area between consumer graphics card and FirePro workstation products, sort of a “workstation-class” product. AMD is claiming the title of “World’s Fastest Graphics Card”. Under the hood you have the two “Fiji” GPUs at their maximum core configuration, 4096 stream processors, 256 TMUs, and 64 ROPs…each! Each chip has 4GB of HBM, so in total there is 8GB of HBM memory.
With this configuration the card has 16 TFLOP/s of single-precision floating point performance. That is more than NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan X, which brings with it 7 TFLOP/s. The Radeon Pro Duo is designed with DirectX 12 games and virtual reality in mind. Not only for consumers, but content creators as well.
The card features a liquid-cooling solution that has been designed by Cooler Master. The card has an integrated 120 mm radiator, much like what we saw on the Fury X. The card is powered by three 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors.
Display output is very similar to the R9 Fury X with three DisplayPort 1.2a connectors and one HDMI 1.4a connectors. The card is expected to be priced at $1499.
The card was on display at the event in a pretty awesome system from Maingear. Here are some pro shots of it in that system.
