AMD Announces Radeon Pro WX 2100, WX 3100 for Workstations

AMD has recently added two new offerings to their WX series of professional, workstation-oriented graphics cards. The WX 2100 and WX 3100 are entry-level offerings for the professional market, with 512 stream processors running at 1,219 MHz on a 14 nm graphics processor based on the Polaris architecture. The RX 2100 features 2GB of GDDR5 memory on a 64-bit interface; the RX 3100 doubles those figures to 4GB of memory on a 128-bit interface.

On performance, AMD said that the soon to be released WX 2100 and WX 3100 deliver up to 2x the performance of previous entry-level professional AMD graphics, and up to 28% faster performance than competing NVIDIA offerings. The WX 2100 is expected to cost $149, while the WX 3100 is expected to go for $199. AMD said the Radeon Pro WX 2100 and WX 3100 are both expected to launch in June; an exact date wasn't provided. The company also said both cards are covered by 24/7 customer support and a three-year limited warranty that can be extended up to seven years.

So workstations can get single slot half height blowers, but the general market cant?

Lame.

5 minutes of research would show you that a 384 core r7 240 spanks the 512 core APU silly in games. a dedicated 512 core chip would easily outstrip anything the current APUs can do,and I'll wager that they will be on par with the best of raven ridge with their 704 core part, unless they include HBM on die.

Plus, APUs are not the choice of office-style machines, the typical target of low profile single slot GPUs. A optiplex 7020 with a 1050ti LP is surprisingly serviceable as a gaming machine.

Would be a nice little host card for my multi KVM virt workstation.

Those are good cards for 3D modeling/graphics design for amateurs, who are not working with complex assemblies or designs. But that's about it. One should consider lucky if this would play Zuma without issues.
