AMD Radeon Pro Duo may Launch on April 28th

 

Rumors suggest that AMD's Radeon Pro Duo may Launch on April 28th, offering 16TFLOPS of FP32 performance, making this GPU more powerful in some cases than even the newly announced Nvidia Tesla P100.

This GPU is based on two of AMD's Fiji GPU cores, giving this GPU a total of 8192 GCN GPU cores and a total of 8GB of HBM memory, all of which is cooled by a custom made Cooler Master AIO water cooler.   AMD Radeon Pro Duo may Launch on April 28th

 

This new GPU from AMD will cost $1500, making this GPU cost more than two AMD R9 Fury X GPUs, though the fact that this is the most powerful single PCB GPU available  may justify this cost for some. 

The Radeon Pro Duo is the most powerful single PCB GPU to date, offering much more computing power than both the GTX Titan Z and AMD's older R9 295X2, making this GPU what AMD calls the "most powerful platform for VR". 

This GPU will be powered by 3x 8-pin PCIe power connectors and will be cooled by a thick 120mm radiator and a Cooler Master made AIO liquid cooler. This GPU is entirely water cooled, unlike its predecessor the R9 295X2 which had a hybrid cooling system. This GPU is very similar to the R9 Fury X n terms of aesthetics, but in reality is is much more similar to a dual R9 Nano setup in terms of performance.

This GPU offers dual Fiji GPUs and a total of 8GB of HBM, boasting a tremendous 16TFLOP of compute power, which is roughly 2x the 8.19 TFLOPs of power that the Fury Nano contains. 

This means that this GPU will likely not outperform a Dual Fury X or a dual GTX 980Ti setup, but it will easily our perform any single PCB GPU that is available right now. Right now it is unknown if Nvidia

Right now it is unknown if Nvidia is planning to release a dual GTX 980Ti or GTX Titan X GPU in order to compete with AMD's new Radeon Pro Duo.

Won't outperform dual R9 FuryX or dual 980Ti ???
Oh well, an enterprise product anyways...

Since when have dual GPU cards ever outperformed two gpus in SLI/Crossfire?



I'm in two minds about this card. I've been waiting for a while to upgrade to a new monster dual GPU card but on the other hand no nVidia counterpart (yet) and the issue of cooling means this card could be junk. Either way, as is always the case with AMD dual gpu cards it'll be £700 in 3 months time so that'll be the best time to buy one.Quote

2 GTX 690s often out performed 4 GTX 680s when benching.Quote

If only this came 3-4 months earlier. Would have actually considered getting 2 of these for a low maintenance build.Quote
