AMD’s latest graphics card, the Radeon Pro WX 3200, is designed specifically for CAD professionals who work with smaller, compact-sized workstations. The company considers it the most cost-effective, low-profile GPU for modest businesses at $199.

The card is ISV certified for Autodesk and other popular design applications. Performance and features include:

  • 1.66 TFLOPS peak performance – With 1.66 TFLOPS peak single precision compute performance, the Radeon™ Pro WX 3200 delivers up to 33 percent faster performance in a low-profile workstation graphics card compared to the previous generation Radeon™ Pro WX 3100 graphics card.
  • 4GB high-speed GDDR5 memory / 128-bit memory interface – With 4GB of GPU memory, the Radeon™ Pro WX 3200 card can handle large 2D and 3D models and workflows with ease.
  • 10 compute units – Each compute unit contains 64 stream processors, for a total of 640 stream processors available that deliver a number of application benefits, including fast redraw and high quality images.
  • Single slot, low-profile card – Compact form factor and efficient design fit into nearly all desktop workstations, ranging from small form factors to full-size towers.
  • 4x Mini-DisplayPort™ 1.4 – The graphics card can drive up to four 4K displays or a single 8K UHD display to provide designers with an immersive ultra-high-resolution experience to view their work.
  • Energy efficient design  Unique power monitoring and management technologies cap power consumption at 50 watts max. AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle.
  • Enhanced driver support – AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise supports the family of AMD Radeon™ Pro graphics products with performance enhancements, stability fixes and new or updated features on a quarterly release schedule.

The AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) and manufacturing industries are faced with an ever-growing demand for higher quality visuals. CAD engineers and designers in these fields have long been challenged to find a workstation solution that provides the ideal balance of performance and stability, while staying within increasingly tight project budgets and meeting the stringent space limitations of their work environments. Enter the AMD Radeon Pro WX 3200 graphics card.
