AMD’s Radeon Pro W7900 Gets RDNA 3, 48GB, 12K Support

Posted on

AMD has introduced its new Radeon Pro W7000 lineup of professional graphics cards that not only significantly increase performance compared to predecessors, but bring support for DisplayPort 2.1/UHBR 20 output (the industry’s first) that enables compatibility with next generation displays featuring resolutions of up to 12K. Support for sophisticated next generation monitors will come particularly handy for computer aided design and digital content creation.

Up to 61 FP32 TFLOPS of Graphics Performance

AMD’s Radeon Pro W7900 and Radeon Pro W7800 graphics cards carry the company’s latest Navi 31 graphics processor featuring the RDNA 3 microarchitecture with all of its advantages like new stream processors, higher rasterization/geometry performance, and AI acceleration. The range-topping Radeon Pro W7900 is based on a full-fat Navi 31 GPU with 6144 stream processors (96 compute units) and 384-bit 48GB GDDR6 ECC memory subsystem enabled by six memory controller dies (MCDs), whereas the Radeon Pro W7800 uses a cut-down Navi 31 with 4480 SPs/70 CUs and a 256-bit 32GB GDDR6 ECC memory subsystem using four MCDs.

From a performance point of view, the Radeon Pro W7900 delivers 61 FP32 TFLOPS, which is in line with what gaming-oriented Radeon RX 7900 XTX provides. To offer this rather unprecedented level of performance, AMD had to equip its top-of-the-line ProViz board with a triple-slot cooling system, an industry’s first. While the wide cooler will not allow installation of the board into some machines, the product will remain compatible with the vast majority of workstations. Meanwhile, it will likely be less noisy than a dual-slot cooler which has to dissipate 295W of power.
