Billed as the world’s first dual-GPU graphics card designed for professionals, the Polaris-architecture-based Radeon Pro Duo claims performance up to double that of competing cards.

Built on the capabilities of the Radeon Pro WX 7100, it certainly has a high-speed heritage, and the 32GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory it features is designed to enable it to handle larger data sets.

Operating at a max power of 250W, the Radeon Pro Duo harnesses a total of 72 compute units (4608 stream processors) for a combined performance of up to 11.45 TFLOPS of single-precision compute performance on one board, and twice the geometry throughput of the Radeon Pro WX 7100. If you want to know the details, that means delivering 11.455488 billion triangles per second compared to the ‘mere’ 5.727744 billion triangles per second of the Pro WX 7100

All that translates in practical terms as being able to drive up to four 4K monitors at 60Hz, drive the latest 8K single monitor display at 30Hz using a single cable, or drive an 8K display at 60Hz using a dual cable rig up.

Availability is end of May and price is an expected $999

Hopefully, we’ll have more details on this soon. For now, though, the press release is over the page as usual (apologies if the formatting is a bit skewed, it came in as a PDF).
