High-Performance AMD Radeon GPUs to Power All-New Mac Pro
New supercharged 7nm AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs with high-speed HBM2 memory and AMD Infinity Fabric Link GPU interconnect technology power made for content creation applications.
June 4, 2019
AMD announces that its new AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs will be included in the all-new Mac Pro. Built on 7nm process technology, AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs provide graphics performance for computation-intensive tasks, including rendering, 8K video, video effects and other high-end content creation workloads.
AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs provide computational performance by harnessing 7nm AMD Radeon Vega family GPUs, High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2), and AMD Infinity Fabric Link GPU interconnect technology that enhances data-transfer speeds between GPUs. Providing up to 14 TFLOPS of single-precision floating-point (FP32) performance and up to 28 TFLOPS of half-precision floating-point (FP16) performance, AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs are optimized for powering professional applications.
“Today’s high-end professional content creation applications are driving an insatiable need for ever increasing levels of processing power and memory,” says Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “Equipped with Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs, the new Mac Pro delivers the computational horsepower and memory bandwidth to power ultra-high screen resolutions and help dramatically accelerate compute and content creation workloads, enabling creative professionals to focus on unleashing their creativity and delivering amazing results.”
Key capabilities and features of AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs include the following:
Compute performance—the AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPU delivers up to 14 TFLOPS of single-precision FP32 performance and up to 28 TFLOPS of half-precision FP16 performance.
Support for Infinity Fabric Link GPU interconnect technology—With up to 84GB/s per direction low-latency peer-to-peer memory access, the scalable GPU interconnect technology enables fast GPU-to-GPU communications.
Fast HBM2 memory—32GB of high-speed HBM2 memory delivers 1TB/s memory bandwidth, providing the memory capacity and data transfer speeds required by high-resolution, multi-display setups, 8K video and other content creation workloads.
