The Radeon Pro Duo Polaris is a enthusiast-class professional graphics card by AMD, launched in April 2017. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Ellesmere graphics processor, in its Ellesmere Gemini GL variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Ellesmere graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 232 mm² and 5,700 million transistors. Radeon Pro Duo Polaris combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 2304 shading units, 144 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs per GPU. AMD has placed 32,768 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 16,384 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1243 MHz, memory is running at 1750 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon Pro Duo Polaris draws power from 1x 6-pin + 1x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 250 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. Radeon Pro Duo Polaris is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 305 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 999 US Dollars.
