AMD Presents Radeon Pro WX 8200 Workstation GPU at SIGGRAPH 2018
Just at NVIDIA presented its next-generation Quadro RTX GPUs, AMD also presented its next-generation Radeon Pro WX workstation lineup at SIGGRAPH 2018 starting with the AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card which AMD claims to be the best workstation graphics card under $1000. The AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 GPUs, with a suggested retail price of $999 USD, offers bang-for-buck workstation solution for virtual reality, real-time visualization, and photorealistic rendering. The Radeon Pro WX 8200 is designed for media and entertainment, architecture engineering and construction and other rendering workloads.
The AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card is equipped with advanced features and technologies geared towards professionals, including the following below:
High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
The Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card’s state-of-the-art memory system removes the capacity limitations of traditional GPU memory, letting creators and designers work with much larger, more detailed models and assets in real time.
Enhanced Pixel Engine
The “Vega” GPU architecture’s enhanced pixel engine lets creators build more complex worlds without worrying about GPU limitations, increasing efficiency by batching related work into the GPU’s local cache to process them simultaneously. New “shade once” technology ensures only pixels visible in the final scene are shaded.
Error Correcting Code (ECC) Memory
Helps guarantee the accuracy of computations by correcting any single or double-bit error resulting from naturally occurring background radiation.
The Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card also features a dedicated AMD Secure Processor, a technology that protects the processing and storage of sensitive data and trusted applications.
Pricing and Availability
The Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card is available for pre-order at Newegg with an MSRP of $999USD. Expected to be available worldwide by September 2018. For more information, visit the Radeon Pro WX 8200 product page here.
