AMD have announced during SIGGRAPH a new addition to their Radeon Pro WX lineup with the Radeon Pro WX 8200.
The WX 8200 is AMD’s second graphics card based on the VEGA architecture in the pro market following the WX 9100 which launched a year prior for more than double the price.
The Radeon Pro WX 8200 is based on the Vega 10 die featuring 3584 total stream processors, 8GB of SK Hynix “Gen 2” ECC HBM2 running at 2.0Gbps allowing 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth in a 2 stack 4-Hi configuration all on a 2048-bit memory bus. This makes the WX 8200 the highest memory bandwidth of any Vega 10 part.
The card is simply a cut down variant of the WX 9100 with onlt 56 CUs enabled, offering 10.75 TFLOPS of FP32 and 21.5 TFLOPS of FP16 performance. The card packs a boost clock of 1500MHz, a 230W TDP and requires an additional 8-pin and a 6-pin external power connector.
The card also comes with 4 Mini DisplayPort 1.4 outputs and is retailing with an MSRP of $999 with pre-orders being listed on Newegg.
The WX 8200 comes with all features found on the Vega architecture like AMD’s High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) and Rapid Packed Math (RPM) technology allowing doubled FP16 performance.
The Radeon Pro WX lineup is targeted towards professionals to accelerate design and rendering, the ideal choice for manufacturing, media, entertainment, architecture, engineering and construction workloads.
“Professionals can fully unleash their creativity with the ‘Vega’ architectureii at the heart of the Radeon™ Pro WX 8200 graphics card,” said Ogi Brkic, General Manager of Radeon Pro, AMD. “This powerful new workstation graphics card empowers creators to improve collaboration among remote teams with VR, create exciting new cinematic experiences and visualize their creations with ease, all at an incredible price point.”
