AMD have announced the latest in their line of top tier video graphics cards, the Radeon Pro Duo.
Touting the 3rd generation GCN architecture and featuring asynchronous shaders, the card supports the latest DirectX™ 12 and Vulkan titles.
This card is primarily designed for the most processor intensive tasks; 4K gaming and VR, with the latter being an important step in AMD’s new focus.
Closed loop liquid cooling should keep the card from suffering the heating issue of previous high end AMD cards (usually balanced out by having a good cooling system in the case), but we’re expecting this beast to still hit the high temperatures.
With the announcement of the Sulon VR headset, an all-in-one Virtual Reality solution, and AMD supporting both Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, the company is getting pretty serious about supporting the future of VR.
For now, we’ll just have to wait for more details on the Radeon Pro Duo as they emerge and for NVidia’s own reply.
