AMD Launches Mid-range Radeon PRO W7600 & W7500 Workstation GPUs

AMD Launches Mid-range Radeon PRO W7600 & W7500 Workstation GPUs

AMD today announces the new Radeon PRO workstation GPUs, the Radeon PRO W7600 and Radeon PRO W7500 aimed for mainstream professional environments, including Media & Entertainment (M&E), Design & Manufacturing (D&M), and Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC).

Much like the Radeon RX 7000 series, both cards falls under the RDNA3 architecture with both models featuring 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM over 128-bit memory bus; the new AI instructions and increased AI compute power delivers 2x more AI performance over the preceding RDNA2 generation on average. These cards also comes with the new Radiance Display Engine, with support for high-bandwidth DisplayPort 2.1 display outputs capable of displaying 12-bit HDR with 8K+ resolutions.

The RDNA3 silicon also gains dual AV1 encode/decode engine support enabling high-efficiency AV1 streams for media transcoding workloads; as with all Radeon PRO GPUs, it comes with AMD Software: PRO Edition for GPU management, with certifications from various institutions to ensure maximum reliability for mission-critical work.

The AMD Radeon PRO W7600 comes with 32 CUs (compute units) and RAs (ray accelerators), 64 AI accelerators delivering 20 TFLOPS of FP32 compute; display outputs feature four DisplayPort 2.1 ports with no HDMI present. It runs at 130W TBP, requiring a single PCIe 6-pin connector to operate. Meanwhile, the PRO W7500 contains 28 CUs/RAs, 56 AI accelerators, 12 TFLOPS FP32, 4x DP 2.1 outputs and uses just 70W – making it entirely powered by the PCIe bus itself. Both cards are set to cost $599 and $429, respectively.

Pokdepinion: Not entirely sure if the 8GB on W7600 may be lesser than usual, given that workstation card often comes with double the RAM over gaming counterparts (W7900 comes with 48GB, for example).
