AMD Announces AMD Radeon Pro WX 3200

Today AMD quietly released is newest entry to professional lineup of Radeon graphics cards, called WX 3200. The new GPU is a low profile, single slot form factor card with focus on providing acceleration for CAD programs, even in the tiniest of workstations.

The card, despite its size, packs quite the punch. It has 640 Stream Processors which put a total of 1.66 TeraFLOPs of compute performance, which is a reasonable performance for a card that has just under 50 W TDP and is powered entirely by PCIe connector. It has four DisplayPort 1.4 connectors which can provide output for up to four 4K monitors or single 8K monitor. For memory, we are looking at 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with 96 GB/s transfer rate and 128 bit wide bus. It is priced at only 199$, making it one of the most cost effective professional GPUs, with ISV-certification for wide range of applications from Autodesk, Altair, Siemens and more. For more details about certified software and the card itself, please check out AMD's website.

Actually an interesting release. Timing is a bit weird inbetween architectures, but it is considerably faster than a wx3100 with the same tdp.

These Pro cards look hella cool, I like these more than the gaming Radeon versions.

Definitely. I really wish the gaming stuff had the same colour.

I have a SFF case that takes mini-ITX motherboards, but the expansion slot is limited to 1 slot, half height. This card looks to be an exact solution to that problem, as you can't find many powerful GPU solutions in that form factor that aren't double height.

The comparable Nvidia card is the Quadro P620 which has 512 CUDA cores, 2GB GDDR5 128bit, and runs at unknown gpu and memory clock speeds but is rated at 1.386TFlops. The P620 is priced in the ~175-200 range their next card is the P1000 which is near $330 which is basically a GTX 1050 with 4GB RAM. Want something stronger than a GTX 960 from Nvidia in the Professional space well you are looking at the Quadro P2000 ~$400. The oddball P2000 sits between a GTX 1050TI and GTX 1060 being a cutdown GTX 1060 with 1024 CUDA cores, 5GB GDDR5 160bit, and 3TFlops of performance. (Yeah Nvidia doesn't list clockspeeds for Quadro cards.)

Part of the issue here is that this is a half-height, single-slot card. Cooling is the limitation, hence the 50W rating. There’s probably not a huge market for this type of card, but maybe a 7nm version could bring more power.

This card, along with most Quadro(Nvidia's version) are simply Pro-Grade products, that can be used for SFF PC's as well as add-in cards for light AutoCAD (2D) work. The software manufacturer's recommend the Pro-Grade cards for driver compatibility reasons. It's not used for gaming.

Perfect card for workstation PCs running CATIA, SolidWorks, IDEA, AutoCAD, 3DStudioMAx, etc, for learning purposes. Like the ones in Schools and Universities.

You are aware you compared a workstation class, non gaming card against a card designed for gaming and not professional apps and also happens to use nearly double the power, right?

Well, just wait for Raja do things at Intel. They must be blue.

even in raw compute a 960 at 1500mhz is a 3tf card (1024 x 2 x 1.5 = 3072 if im not wrong)
