Radeon Pro WX series aims for VR9 September 2016
Representing a new graphics strategy, AMD is showing the new Radeon Pro WX series of professional graphics cards for content creation and engineering. Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, AMD Radeon Technologies Group, said: “We have taken a long, hard look at the workstation space and chose to focus on what we define as ‘the art of the impossible’.
Radeon Pro represents a powerful alternative to the old way of doing things, setting aside proprietary [systems] for open source ones, and closed ecosystems in favour of greater choice and flexibility.”
The new line, based on the Polaris architecture, includes the Radeon Pro WX 7100 GPU, aimed at design engineering and media and entertainment workflows and is AMD’s technology for virtual reality content creation; Radeon Pro
WX 5100 GPU, for product development; and Radeon Pro WX 4100 GPU, for small form factor workstations. All three are expected to be available in Q4 of 2016.
