AMD Radeon PRO W7700 promises AI-level performance for workstations under $1,000

AMD has introduced its latest Radeon PRO series graphics card tailored for workstation-style PCs—the AMD Radeon Pro W7700. Positioned as a mid-power offering in its new generation, it aims to deliver professional-grade AI and CAD outcomes, leveraging RDNA 3 and GDDR6 memory. These enhancements are anticipated to yield a price-to-performance ratio up to 1.7 times higher than its predecessors.

The Radeon PRO W7700 emerges as a potential upgrade for designers or creators seeking to enhance their workflow in applications like Solidworks, Adobe Premiere, or Da Vinci Resolve. With the capacity to achieve 28 TFLOPS (in FP32) and equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, it holds promise for elevating details, textures, and generative AI performance.

This card demonstrates prowess in handling ray tracing tasks, equipped with multiple ray accelerators corresponding to its 48 CUs. Additionally, it integrates AMD’s new Radiance Display Engine and the latest RDNA 3 technology, promising “stunning resolutions and vibrant color depth for viewing projects on up to 4 screens.”

Equipped with 4 ultra-high bandwidth DisplayPort 2.1 ports, the W7700 offers expansive connectivity. However, within the new Radeon PRO lineup, it resides in the mid-range category—housing half the RAM of the W7800 card and featuring half the CUs of the W7900.
