Designed from the ground up for large scale creative projects, the AMD Radeon Pro VII is the graphics card you need if you’re used to processing large amounts 4K or 8K video – it’ll give you top-level performance in spades.
Available at the end of this month, the Radeon Pro VII GPU is an absolute workstation powerhouse built for demanding 24/7 environments and made with the latest stress-tested components.
Whether you’re a film maker, editor or VFX specialist, you’ll appreciate the boost it gives your craft.
Of course, AMD graphics is behind many world class workstations. The Radeon Pro VII GPU itself uses the latest-generation 7nm manufacturing process and is based around AMD’s market-leading “Vega” architecture, used in some of the world’s fastest supercomputers.
With up to 13.1 teraflops (FP32) of high-class graphics performance, it’ll power your Windows 10 or Linux machine through everything you can throw at it – especially as part of a balanced system with a blazing fast CPU like AMD’s Ryzen™ Threadripper™ offering multi-core workstation-level performance.
If you love working with multiple displays on demanding broadcast or time-sensitive projects, this is the card for you. It boasts six separate mini DisplayPort 1.4 outputs enabling you to drive six individual 4K displays, three 5K displays or a single 8K display.
The dual-slot card also boasts support for PCIe 4.0, the latest generation of the hardware interface that offers double the throughput of the previous version of the standard.
And with 16GB of state-of-the-art HBM2 memory (second-generation High Bandwidth Memory) on board the card, you won’t run out of headroom for large projects.
Memory bandwidth of over a terabyte per second means your pro-level software will absolutely fly, working wonders for heavyweight apps like Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer and Foundry Nuke in 4K or 8K. The Radeon Pro VII GPU has undergone an extensive certification process to help ensure reliability in the high-end software you use every day.
Foundry Nuke, for example, may have modest entry level hardware requirements, but it can support multiple GPU processing while advanced features are GPU accelerated. Crucially, the Radeon Pro VII bats away I/O bottlenecks when working on 4K or 8K projects thanks to the stellar amount of memory bandwidth and PCIe 4.0 support.
And in DaVinci Resolve, all image processing takes place on the GPU. The AMD Radeon Pro VII offers twice the recommended graphics memory for UHD projects and can easily cope with the challenges from complex 8K projects.
“Radeon Pro VII will be a great addition for creative professionals who need a revolutionary PCIe Gen 4 GPU to process both 8K and Blackmagic RAW 6K content in DaVinci Resolve in real time” says Dan May, president of Blackmagic Design Inc.
“The support from 16GB HBM2 memory will be great for DaVinci Resolve users who can use the PCIe Gen4 for faster transfers of content and media on projects up to 8K content.”
For particularly demanding scenarios you can run two Radeon Pro VII GPUs side-by-side with AMD Infinity Fabric™ Link using a two or three-slot bridge connector available separately.
Your premium workstation can then use the combined graphics memory of both cards together, so there’s the potential of 32GB of superfast HBM2 memory at your disposal. AMD is working to make more third-party software apps compatible with this standard.
The Radeon Pro VII graphics driver gives you enterprise-grade stability, and performance as well as additional features such as high-resolution screen capture, recording and video streaming.
The Radeon Pro VII also supports the GPU-accelerated experience of AMD Remote Workstation so you’re able to access your physical workstation from anywhere, meaning you can get project work done remotely should you need to. The remote workstation capability is built into the AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise driver.
The AMD Radeon Pro VII workstation graphics card is purpose-built to deliver high-class performance to media professionals within a reasonable price.
