AMD’s $1,500 Radeon Pro Duo now official with two Fiji GPUs

AMD

After a flurry of leaks detailing the card, AMD’s $1,500 Radeon Pro Duo is now official. The card is aimed at VR content creators, and for developers looking to distribute intensive workloads across two GPUs.

As for the hardware on offer, the Radeon Pro Duo is essentially two Radeon R9 Nanos in CrossFire on a single PCB, with a closed loop cooler managing dissipation of heat.The card offers 4,096 stream processors with 64 compute units, 256 texture units and 64 ROPs.  That’s for each GPU, and the Radeon Pro Duo has two 28nm Fiji GPUs, which leads to AMD’s statement that the card is the fastest on the market. While that’s true, you’re paying a $500 price premium over two R9 Nanos for the card.

There’s also 4GB of HBM running at 500MHz on each GPU, resulting in 1,024GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The requisite 350W of power is drawn through three 8-pin connectors, and the card offers three DisplayPort connectors and a full-size HDMI port.

While the card retains the Radeon branding and not the FirePro designation, AMD has announced that it will validate the card for content creation suites like Autodesk, Maya, and Blackmagic Davinci Resolve.
