AMD Radeon Pro Duo: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon Pro Duo sales 26 April 2016 at a recommended price of $1,499. This is GCN 3.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of HBM memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 4096 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 512.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 277 mm. 3 8-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 350 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 33.89 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of Radeon Pro Duo's architecture, market segment and release date.
Radeon Pro Duo's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of Radeon Pro Duo's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon Pro Duo's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on Radeon Pro Duo: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on Radeon Pro Duo. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by Radeon Pro Duo, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon Pro Duo. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Cryptocurrency mining performance of Radeon Pro Duo. Usually measured in megahashes per second.
Let's see how good Radeon Pro Duo is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 99% minimum and 94% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
