AMD has this week officially announced their new AMD Radeon Pro Duo graphics card which has been specifically created for virtual reality developers, to enable them to squeeze every last drop of performance from the new VR headsets which are slowly rolling out to consumers.
In the last month both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets have been launched priced at $599 and $799 respectively. Now AMD has created the Radeon Pro Duo specifically designed for creating VR applications and has not directly aimed at gamers for a change.
AMD has created the Radeon Pro Duo graphics card to support a wide variety of professional software to enable virtual reality developers to create immersive content and enable developers to allocate one GPU per eye, to offer performance that no other single graphics card can offer at the current time. Check out the specifications comparison chart below created by the AnandTech website to compare its hardware with other graphics cards currently available.
The Radeon Pro Duo graphics card is capable of developing and driving VR experiences at the ultimate fidelity level. Create games faster with application optimizations to enhance workflow performance. Enjoy the benefits of AMD LiquidVR technology to enable rich and immersive VR experiences by simplifying and optimizing VR content creation designed to work seamlessly with leading headsets.
Be more productive by completing tasks lightning fast. With dual GPUs enabled with high bandwidth memory (HBM) technology, Radeon Pro Duo graphics has the parallel computing power to speed through OpenCL supported applications such as Adobe Premiere, Adobe® After Effects, Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve Studio and Blackmagic Fusion Studio.
Radeon has done it again by creating the fastest gaming card in the world. Improving over the Radeon R9 295 X2, the Radeon Pro Duo card is faster yet quiet. The 3rd generation GCN architecture featuring asynchronous shaders enables the latest DirectX™ 12 and Vulkan titles to deliver amazing 4K and VR gaming experiences.
