Amd unveil workstation pro gpus
It’s no secret that AMD has been at the center of some of the biggest technical announcements in recent years. Well, an unlisted video recently posted on YouTube suggests that they may be the center of another rather special presentation.
Judging from the overall GPU layout of the video and the choice of DisplayPorts it handles, the best guess indicates that this may be the official debut of the company's new Radeon Pro GPU product line-Radeon Pro W6800 and W6900X. Since the end of 2020, there have been
rumors about the new Navi 21-based Prograde GPU; however, the announcement seems to be scheduled for June 8, 2021 (confirming what the previous rumors implied). The
teaser video confirms that the GPU in question will provide a blue color scheme (similar to W5700) and various DisplayPort connections (6 in total), further consolidating the theory of Radeon Pro series release.
recent news has seen hints of W6900X in the Mac source code; however, the leak is relatively limited to W6800. With this in mind, it is not clear whether AMD will release a full range of products or only GPUs. Since then, 4,444 photos of the new GPU product line have been posted on Chiphell, including a PCB photo.
In addition to various pictures and undisclosed videos, some early performance benchmarks have also been leaked. Wccftech recommends that testing is performed on non-final drivers, which means that these numbers do not represent the final performance.
The performance of the Radeon RX 6000 series gaming GPU that you will see is better than that of the W6800, and its controller optimization is much better than the Pro w6000 alternative that is not currently released. So to reiterate, the benchmarks are just a guide to what we might expect at press time.
Here are some initial specifications for the Radeon Pro W6800 / W6900X, compared to the previous generation Pro Graphics workstation:
