AMD Radeon Pro Duo Performance Numbers Leaked

Ahead of its launch, performance numbers of AMD Radeon Pro Duo were leaked to the web by Expreview. Pitted against the $620 GeForce GTX 980 Ti, the $1,499 dual-GPU monstrosity is about 32 percent faster at 1080p (which sees CPU saturation), and on average 59.4 percent faster at 4K Ultra HD. The card is noted to conjure up more than playable frame-rates for all the games Expreview tested at 4K. Frame-rates were as low as 46 fps, and as high as 61 fps, indicating that the Pro Duo is the go-to single-card solution for Ultra HD. Find the review in the link below.

good, but, not good enough imo.

If you dont even run current games at 4k with the latest dual card costing 1500 dollars then....yeah pass.

I know dual-GPU cards never win any price/performance awards, but I still expected more.

Only 5% better in Computemark?
It's missing something.

Gotta love when they compare a dual gpu card that had top of gpu's on it vs single gpu from the competition and act like its a fair thing to do. Sad way to make up a benchmark in such a way.

What's stoping people from buying a second 980TI, come out cheaper and most likely with more performance than AMD's dual gpu offering.

didnt nvidia use 4 year old hardware in there last dual card release pr bumf?

i think they like to highlight single slots vs single slot stuffs.

They should've said on that slide: Finally after "only" a year of research and developement, we are now able to present a card that is faster than the fastest card from our competitor and we only needed two GPUs for that. Buy fast, it won't be the fastest card for long!

In Dx12 the only competition AMD has to this product is their own cards in CFX. Keep in mind that Radeon Pro Duo card also comes with firepro class driver support.

Does it or is that a guess? On AMDs website, its still listed under "Desktop" and not "Workstation"...

If those performance numbers are accurate, and if we combine them with power draw and temps, it actually looks quite good even in contrast to dual-card setups:


Maybe it is not the best-performing upcoming card, but it sure as hell runs cooler and consumes less power than a pair of FuryX or GTX980Ti.
But once again - I will only believe it when someone does an in-depth review with a sample GPU. Getting kinda tired of rumors.

Erm, DUO consumes less power, than Fury X?
Is that single Fury X or 2 of em?
Yikes.

Funny that I was about to post about how solid does 295x performance look. Oh, and it's quite cheap too... :)

even in contrast to dual-card setups:
Isn't 270w total system consumption a bit low for dual card setups?

PS
And Fury X has better perf/watt than 980Ti? Eh?

...Running at 760MHz and slightly lower voltage....
I think they ran one of standard Furmark presets, which on this huge card definitely introduced a CPU bottleneck.
Previously "leaked" spec points out a 350W max TDP for this card.

What are the numbers supposed to tell us when power consumption for that fancy new card is benched at considerably lower clockspeed and lower voltage than the reference points, but performance is benched at full clockspeed (and the appropriate voltage that comes with it)? I mean 760MHz vs. 1000MHz is A LOT!

Math would say in most games the duo would beat a pair of 980tis. If nvidia had a dual gpu card they would have compared that I'm sure they however don't. So what you see is the best card they offer being tested against the best card amd offers and it still loosing to the what 3-4 year old 295x2 which is slower than a duo.

Yeah, but look at them clock speeds... all over the place. It's hard to come to any conclusions, based on that set of charts...

It better be amazing for that price. And it's not, really, unless you're some kind of professional...

What about the Devil 13 390 dual from powercooler? Wasn't that a bit faster than the 295x2? I have seen that card for around $600 too. It even came with a nice mouse.

My dual fury x build has a graphic score of 7681 in Fire Strike Ultra
It seem like RPD is more like dual R9 Nano rather than dual Fury X

Well, I have to say the performance numbers regardless are pretty much known so at this point its kinda boring. Its two Nano's essentially so as long as they maintain the 1000mhz then we have our answer already. We should not expect much difference except if it cannot maintain the 1000mhz range (Which would be stupid in my book at least if they don't make it easy to fix like the Nano) and then the overclockability and if it at least scales as well as Fury X.

The true killer of this card is the over zealous price tag, it's some $400 over the marker. As why would you buy it when you could just get 2x980Ti's plus more goodies :P.

Or wait a few months for something more viable as 295x2 replacement. :banghead:

I have 2x 980 tis .... they take up alot of room. Less cards better air flow , look neater can fit more stuff in them ect ect. I would like to install more cards in pcie slots ... but dont have the room for it.

Right now I have 4x pci cards ... 2x video cards , 1 sound card and 1 wireless remote starter card.

I would love to have more slots to install more stuff ... that is the only reason for this card , saves room.

However that being said, Changing out motherboards can also help with this. And that is what I am going to do , GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 has built in sound card and 2x Ultra x4 M.2 slots ... that saves me soundcard and PCIe SSD slots ... so that is what I will go for.
