On the evening of February 10, AMD officially released the new Graphics Workstation Pro Graphics Card Radeon Pro W5500, along with the mobile version of the Radeon Pro W5500M. Both are based on 7nm process, RDNA architecture, Navi 14 core, all support PCIe 4.0, 22 computing units, 1408 stream processors, with 128-bit GDDR6 memory, equivalent frequency 14GHz, bandwidth of 224GB/s.
Among them, the W5500 FP32 floating-point performance 5.35TFlops, memory capacity of 8GB, and equipped with four DisplayPort 1.4 interface, support four 4K or single 8K/60Hz output, maximum power consumption of 125W, tail of a single turbo fan cooling.
The W5500M frequency has been reduced, fp32 floating-point performance has been reduced to 4.79TFlops, the memory capacity has been halved to 4GB, and four outputs are still supported, with maximum power consumption coming to 85W.
Obviously, they’re the professional version of the RX 5500 XT, with the same core, but redesigned for professional graphics applications.
AMD claims that the performance of the RDNA architecture is up to 25% higher than the GCN architecture, while the new card is up to 10 times higher than the competing Quadro P2200, SPECviewperf 13 multithreaded performance, SolidWorks performance is up to 32%, and there is a Professional-driven boost. Performance has improved by about 15% over the past year.
The Radeon Pro W5500, priced at $399 (RX 5500 XT 199), will be available from mid-February. The Radeon Pro W5500M mobile workstation will be available this spring.
In November, AMD also released the more expensive Radeon Pro W5700, 7nm Navi 10 core, 2304 stream processors, 128-bit 8GB GDDR6 memory, five miniDPs and a USB-C interface, $799.
