AMD expands its Radeon Pro workstation graphics card lineup with the introduction of the Radeon Pro W7600 and Radeon Pro W7500, delivering the latest RDNA 3 architecture and professional-focused features to mainstream creators and professionals. The new cards aim to provide excellent price-to-performance ratios, making high-end workstation graphics more accessible to a broader range of users.
With 8GB memory, AV1 encoding, DisplayPort 2.1, and dedicated AI acceleration, the cards can efficiently tackle CAD, animation, rendering, video editing and other demanding workflows. The W7600 and W7500 cards start at $599 and $429 respectively, and are now available from retailers, with OEM and system integrator models coming later this year. With the new releases, AMD is enabling more professionals to take advantage of cutting-edge graphics power and capabilities for enhanced productivity and creativity.
Comparison to Competitors:
The Radeon Pro W7600 is built on AMD’s latest RDNA 3 architecture, which brings improvements to compute units, raytracing, and AI acceleration compared to the previous RDNA 2 architecture. Specifically, it has 96 compute units and ray accelerators, delivering up to 18.5 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance. This represents a significant uplift over the prior W6600 card based on RDNA 2, which had only 32 compute units and 10 TFLOPS performance.
Compared to NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 4000 card that is also aimed at mainstream professional workflows, the W7600 should have a performance edge thanks to the advanced RDNA 3 architecture. The Quadro RTX 4000 is built on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture and has 2560 CUDA cores, delivering up to 7.1 TFLOPS FP32 performance.
The Radeon Pro W7500 also utilizes RDNA 3 and has 28 compute units and ray accelerators, capable of up to 8.8 TFLOPS performance. This slots it above NVIDIA’s Quadro T1000 with its Turing TU117 GPU and 1024 CUDA cores (4.1 TFLOPS).
Both new AMD cards have 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit bus. The RTX 4000 has 12GB GDDR6 with 192-bit bus, so AMD is trading some memory capacity for the advanced RDNA 3 architecture.
The W7600 and W7500 look very competitive in terms of price and performance. AMD is bringing RDNA 3 advantages like AI acceleration, raytracing improvements, and advanced media encoding to more mainstream professional users. This could make them popular options for running professional workflows with tight budgets.
