AMD Readying Radeon Pro WX 9100 with Vega GPU
Samuel Wan / 2 years ago
Over the past couple of months, AMD has been busy releasing new graphics cards. Chief among them is the new GPUs based off of Vega. The new GPUs, using the new Vega architecture and HBM2, will offer a massive improvement over their predecessors. Adding to the current crop of Vega GPUs, AMD is readying yet another card using the same GPU, the Radeon Pro WX 9100 graphics card.
The new Radeon Pro WX 9100 recently popped up on the CompuBench benchmark database. The GPU features full Vega 10 with 4,096 stream processors in 64 Compute Units and 16 GB of HBM2. Interestingly, the clock speed is a relatively low 1200 MHz. This is significantly lower than the recent Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition clocks. The WX 9100 joins the WX x100 lineup which is mostly made up of GCN 4 Polaris GPUs.
AMD Planning 4 Vega Lineups
We now have a better sense of what AMD is planning for Vega due to the WX 9100 leak. Moving forward, it looks like AMD is targeting more segments of the market than before. We have the mainstream Radeon gaming cards, the Instinct compute accelerators, the prosumer gaming/workstation Pro/Frontier Edition and the workstation WX 9100. This is a doubling of the old lineup of just Radeon and FirePro.
With this latest release, it brings the total number of Vega cards released or revealed in some way to 8. The only real missing player is the new Radeon RX Vega GPUs. Those cards will reportedly offer terrific performance/dollar. Hopefully, we will see these gaming cards arrive shortly as they are the ones most of the market will be buying.
