During the ongoing SIGGRAPH 2018 in Vancouver, Canada, the American semiconductor firm AMD announced an addition to the Radeon Pro WX workstation graphics lineup with the AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card. The company claimed that the newly launched graphics card will deliver one of the world's best workstation graphics performance under the price tag of $1,000. The card could be used for real-time visualization, virtual reality (VR) and photorealistic rendering. AMD also unveiled updates to Radeon ProRender and announced a new alliance with the Vancouver Film School.
The company said that the new AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card will allow professionals to accelerate design and rendering. “It is the ideal graphics card for design and manufacturing, media and entertainment, and architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) workloads at all stages of product development,” said AMD in a statement.
“Professionals can fully unleash their creativity with the ‘Vega' architecture 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.”
“Based on the advanced “Vega” GPU architecture with the 14nm FinFET process, the Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card offers the performance required to drive increasingly large and complex models through the entire design visualization pipeline. With planned certifications for many of today's most popular applications – including Adobe CC, Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk 3ds Max, Revit, among others – the Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics card is ideal for workloads such as real-time visualization, physically-based rendering and VR,” said the company.
