AMD has launched what it is calling the first 7 nm graphics card for workstations: the $799 Radeon Pro W5700. This GPU offers 36 compute units, up to 8.89 TFLOPs of performance, and 8 GB of GDDR6 with a 256-bit memory interface providing up to 448 GB/s of bandwidth. Those specs, coupled with AMD’s RDNA architecture and PCIe 4.0 support, make the W5700 a compelling choice for 3D designers, architectures, and other professionals working with larger models and datasets.
“Today’s professionals need high-performance professional graphics hardware to better interact with their product concepts and make more informed decisions sooner in the design process,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon™ Technologies Group at AMD. “We designed the AMD Radeon™ Pro W5700 to deliver significant performance gains in top design and manufacturing applications. Architects, designers and engineers now have the horsepower to drive demanding real-time and VR experiences, enabling a better and faster design creation process.”
