At SIGGRAPH 2017 AMD revealed the new Radeon Pro SSG and Radeon Pro WX 9100, both of which are based on the Vega architecture and feature HBM2 memory. The Radeon Pro WX 9100 is designed for video and design workloads. The GPU features 12.3 TFLOPs of computing performance 16GB of HBM2 and the new High Bandwidth Cache Controller.
The AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 is capable of handling 8K/60Hz as well as 4K 120Hz. The GPU can support up to 6 displays. AMD showed off 4 Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPUs working in CrossFire and it was interesting to note that two 1250W PSUs were needed in order to power the system.
A single one of these GPUs cost $2199, all in all, we are looking at $8796 worth of GPUs alone. You will be able to buy one starting September this year so stay tuned for more information regarding where and when you can buy these graphics cards.
On the gaming side of things, we have got reports that Asus is working on a dual Vega GPU that could provide double the performance of the AMD Vega 64. Take this with a grain of salt as this information has not been confirmed by AMD or Asus.
We rise to the cooling challenge with a combination of brains and brawn that provides excellent performance when you need it and silence when you don’t. It all starts with MaxContact, an industry-leading heat spreader machined to tighter tolerances than conventional counterparts.
If you are a content creator and are looking for a GPU for your work then this is something worth looking into.
