AMD makes available the new AMD Radeon PRO W6000X series GPUs for Mac Pro. The new GPU product line delivers performance and ivisual fidelity to power various professional applications and workloads, including 3D rendering, 8K video compositing, color correction and more.
Built on AMD RDNA 2 architecture, AMD Infinity Cache and other advanced technologies, the new workstation graphics lineup includes the AMD Radeon PRO W6900X and AMD Radeon PRO W6800X GPUs. Mac Pro users also can choose the AMD Radeon PRO W6800X Duo graphics card, a dual-GPU configuration that leverages high-speed AMD Infinity Fabric interconnect technology to deliver compute performance.
“We developed the AMD Radeon PRO W6000X series GPUs to unleash professionals’ creativity and help them bring more complex and compute-intensive projects to life, from animating 3D film assets to compositing 8K scenes to game development,” says Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “The new AMD Radeon PRO W6000X series is packed with remarkable energy efficiency, enhanced compute units and a new visual pipeline, enabling Mac Pro users to do more in less time across a broad range of pro applications.”
Key capabilities and features of AMD Radeon PRO W6000X series GPUs include:
- AMD RDNA 2 Architecture—Built on the 7nm manufacturing process, AMD RDNA 2 architecture offers an array of advanced features.
- High-speed GDDR6 memory—Up to 64GB of GDDR6 memory with up to 512 GB/s bandwidth provides fast transfer speeds.
- AMD Infinity Cache—Up to 256MB (total) of last-level data cache integrated on the GPU die is designed to reduce latency and power consumption.
- AMD Infinity Fabric—Provides a high-bandwidth, low latency, direct connection between local AMD GPUs, enabling fast GPU-to-GPU communications.
