AMD has unveiled its latest product in the form of a workstation-oriented graphics card called the Radeon Pro WX 8200. The company showcased this new graphics card during its presentation at the recently held Siggraph conference. Interestingly, this is only the red company’s second workstation graphics card to be based off of the Vega GPU architecture.
When it comes to design, the Radeon Pro WX 8200 looks pretty much like its siblings; it has a dark blue cooler shroud (AMD calls this colour ‘YInMn blue’) along with one blower-style cooling fan. The ‘subtle’ look on this graphics card is, of course, expected since it’s made for professionals who cares more about performance rather than the looks of a particular graphics card.
Specifications-wise, the Radeon Pro WX 8200 features 3,584 stream processors, 64 ROPs (render output units), boost clock speed of 1500MHz, and a memory clock speed of 2.0Gbps (HBM2). Being a professional product, the main feature of this graphics card would be its performance on precision computing. The Radeon Pro WX 8200 has a FP16 and FP32 compute performance of 21.5 TFLOPS and 10.8 TFLOPs respectively.
Again, it should be noted that the Radeon Pro WX 8200 is a graphics card that is not meant for gamers – it’s aimed at professional users. Knowing this, it shouldn’t be surprising then to know that this graphics card comes with an eye opening price tag of US$999 (about RM4,088).
