Today, in addition to launching the Athlon 3000G processor, AMD has announced the world's first 7nm GPU for workstations, the Radeon Pro W5700. This new GPU is the first in the Radeon Pro W5000 series, and it's based on the company's new RDNA architecture, which promises up to 25% more performance per clock compared to the previous GCN architecture.
The Radeon Pro W5700 also promises up to 41% more performance per watt compared to the GCN-based Radeon Pro WX 8200. It also claims to be 18% more power-efficient than Nvidia's Quadro RTX 4000 GPU. AMD also boasts better multitasking capabilities when the CPU is under load, promising up to 5.6 times the workflow performance compared to the same Nvidia card.
The Radeon Pro W5700 is also the first workstation GPU to support PCIe 4.0 for additional bandwidth and it also comes with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Additionally, it's the first GPU of its kind to come with a USB Type-C port to support the growing number of monitors that use it for video input. Here's a quick rundown of the specs:
|GPU||Compute units||TFLOPS||Memory (Bandwidth)||Memory interface||Display outputs|
|Radeon Pro W5700||36||Up to 8.89||8GB GDDR6 (448GB/s)||256-bit||6|
The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 is available today in the North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific regions, starting at $799.
