Congratulations to AMD! The AMD Radeon Pro VII is our choice for the best graphics card for NAB Week 2020. It’s a powerful graphics card that provides pro-level performance.
The Radeon Pro VII is a workstation graphics card for professional broadcast and video production. It’s designed to power the most demanding broadcast and media projects. Also, it offers 16 GB of dedicated VRAM and features support for 6 synchronized displays and high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 interconnect tech. Also, according to AMD, it provides up to 26 percent higher 8K image processing performance in Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve and up to 5.6x the double-precision performance-per-dollar versus the competition. It is for these reasons and more that we choose the AMD Radeon Pro VII as the best graphics card at NAB Week 2020.
Radeon Pro VII key features
Radeon Pro VII performance
The graphics card offers up to 6.5 TFLOPS of double-precision performance. Also, the card provides 5.6x the performance-per-dollar versus the competition.
For memory, the graphics card offers 16GB of HBM2 with 1TB/s memory bandwidth and full ECC capability. Additionally, it’s capable of handling large and complete models and datasets with low latency.
Infinity Fabric Link
You can share memory between two Pro VII GPUs with a high-bandwidth, low-latency connection. So, this allows users to increase their project workloads and sizes. AMD Infinity Fabric Link delivers up to 5.25x PCIe 3.0 x16 bandwidth with a communication speed of up to 168 GB/s peer-to-peer between GPUs.
The graphics card supports up to 6x synchronized display panels, full HDR and 8K screen resolution (single display). Also, that’s combined with fast encode and decode support for enhanced multi-stream workflows.
Pricing and availability
You can expect the AMD Radeon Pro VII graphics card to be out mid-June for $1899.
