AMD introduces the Radeon Pro W7500 and Radeon Pro W7600

The Sunnyvale giant has expanded its catalog of professional graphics cards with the new Radeon Pro W7500 and Radeon Pro W7600, two models that position themselves directly within what we can consider as mid-range and that they will reach the market with quite competitive prices.

Both graphics cards use the RDNA3 architecture which means that they have the latest advances that AMD has introduced in the graphics sector, and are manufactured in the 6 nm node. This represents a step up from the Radeon Pro W6600, which is built on the 7nm node.

Among the most important advances that AMD has highlighted during the presentation of both graphics cards are the support of tasks of simultaneous encoding and decodinghave full support of the AV1 codec (up to 8K and 60 FPS), have two specialized AI accelerators per compute unit, and improve ray tracing performance per compute unit by up to 50% compared to the previous generation .

It is important to note that, in addition, the RDNA3 architecture introduces dual-emission shaders, which allows each shader to work with two Wave32 instructions per clock cycle, and that this has a huge impact on the total power at FP32 that it is capable of delivering. It is enough to see that the Radeon Pro W6600 only reached 10 TFLOPs, and that the Radeon Pro W7600 reaches 20 TFLOPs, twice the power.

AMD has shared some performance data, and as we can see in the attached graphs, there is a significant improvement compared to the previous generation, although the results vary greatly depending on each specific test, and in some cases the Radeon Pro W6600 surpasses to the Radeon Pro 7600, while in others the latter yields up to 86% more than that.

The Radeon Pro W7500 and Radeon Pro W7600 can boast of offering an excellent degree of compatibility and support with the main professional applications of the moment, and the truth is that they offer a very competitive price-performance ratio compared to the NVIDIA A2000 and NVIDIA T1000, as we can see in the second and third graphs.

Both graphics cards are also supported by an extensive ecosystem of software, and by the AMD ROCm v5.6 libraries, optimized for the RDNA3 architecture and ready to take advantage of these new specialized AI cores. The Radeon Pro W7500 and Radeon Pro W7600 will be available throughout this quarter, and as we have said they will be priced at $429 and $599, respectively.
