AMD announces affordable Radeon Pro WX3200 professional GPU
The new Radeon Pro WX 3200 proves that professional GPUs do not always have to cost an arm and a leg. With a small profile (only 6.6-inch long) single-slot design that fits the latest compact workstations, the Radeon Pro WX3200 features a 4th gen GCN updated with the latest driver specs for the CAD/CAM industry standards.
Since it is meant to be an entry-level professional solution, do not expect this new model to come with the latest 7 nm tech featured with the Instinct cards. The Radeon Pro WX3200 is a direct successor for the WX3100 model, hence it retains the older 14 nm Polaris architecture. It integrates 640 stream processors and 10 compute units coupled with 4 GB of 128-bit GDDR5 VRAM able to deliver 104 GFLOPs in double precision workloads and 3.3 TFLOPs in single precision workloads.
Even if it has a low profile and a TDP of only 50W, this model still supports the Eyefinity multi-display technology which allows users to connect up to four 4K monitors, or two 5K monitors, or a single 8K monitor through the available four mini DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. Other supported technologies include up to date Radeon Pro Adrenalin Edition drivers, Unified Video Decoder, and AMD’s proprietary Radeon ProRender engine. The API list includes DX 12, OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 2.0 and Vulkan 1.1.
Availability for the new card is not yet specified, but the retailing price is set to US$199.
