AMD Radeon Pro Duo: specs and benchmarks

VS

Combined performance score

Summary

AMD started Radeon Pro Duo sales 26 April 2016 at a recommended price of $1,499 . This is a GCN 3.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) memory clocked at 500 GHz are supplied, and together with 4096 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 512 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 poor gaming and benchmark performance at 21.00% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
