Some years ago, Apple decided it was time to change its Mac Pro. The changes were substantial: it was now a desktop that could be positioned vertically, and it was no longer a product that catered to gamers exclusively. However, since the new Mac Pro was designed from the ground up for professional users, the marriage between the two product lines was never meant to be – so when it was time to replace the existing Mac Pro, AMD was brought in to help.

AMD has just announced its new Radeon Pro W6000X graphics card, targeted at Mac Pro users. Based on AMD’s Polaris architecture, the W6000X features a 4096 stream processors chip with a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The card draws power from a triple-slot all-digital PWM power connector and a printed circuit board, so it’s not an external solution.

AMD has been the go-to choice for high-performance graphics cards for the past few years, but in the past few months, Nvidia has taken over the high end GPU market. This week, AMD has announced its new Radeon PRO W6000X GPUs, which are designed to offer professional workstations the same level of performance as a GTX 1080 Ti.

AMD has made the new Radeon PRO W6000X series workstation GPUs available for purchase. The Radeon PRO W6000X series consists of three versions, the most complex of which is the Radeon PRO W6800X Duo, which uses the high-performance RNDA 2 architecture and is intended specifically for Apple’s Mac Pro machines. The AMD Radeon PRO W6800X graphics card Duo is a dual-GPU system with 120 Units of computation and 7,680 Processors of Streams, as well as 64 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface. The Radeon PRO W6800X Duo has an FP32 performance of up to 30.2 TFLOPS.
