AMD Unveils Professional Graphics for Mainstream Workstation Users
AMD announced new additions to the Radeon PRO W6000 Series desktop and mobile workstation graphics lineup. They are designed to deliver performance, stability, and reliability for professional users, including CAD designers, engineers, and office knowledge workers.
The new Radeon PRO W6400 graphics card is built on RDNA 2 graphics architecture and advanced 6nm manufacturing process technology, with 16MB of high-bandwidth, low-latency Infinity Cache memory technology acting as a bandwidth amplifier. Offering a blend of performance and efficiency at an affordable price, the new graphics card is optimized for the requirements of today’s popular CAD and office productivity applications in a compact design that can be easily added to modern small-form-factor desktops.
Compared to the previous generation, the Radeon PRO W6400 graphics card delivers up to three times higher performance in Autodesk AutoCAD 2022 during 3D orbit rotational tests in shaded modes. It also offers up to 87 percent higher performance in McNeel Rhino using the Holomark 2 benchmark with mesh, object, and model data stress tests. The new graphics card also offers performance gains in typical office applications and workloads, such as videoconferencing, email, and web browsing, where reliability and stability are key.
Additions to the Radeon PRO product family also include the PRO W6500M and PRO W6300M GPUs for next-gen professional mobile workstations. The new GPUs are also built on RDNA 2 architecture with 6nm process technology and harness up to 8MB of Infinity Cache memory technology to deliver ultra-high viewport frame rates, dependability, and exceptional performance for professional applications.
“Work patterns have changed dramatically over the last year, requiring professional users to work more efficiently and complete projects faster than ever,” said Scott Herkelman, senior vice president and general manager of Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “The Radeon PRO W6400 is a powerful graphics card that harnesses the award-winning RDNA 2 architecture feature set, enabling not only mainstream CAD professionals to produce incredible and complex designs, but also meeting the demands of today’s office workers who need to edit images, create presentations, collaborate and multitask more than ever. In addition, the new Radeon PRO W6000 Series mobile graphics provide the ideal combination of performance and mobility to drive a range of workloads for professionals on the go.”
