Following the footsteps of NVIDIA which revealed its latest RTX graphics lineup, AMD has announced the Radeon Pro V340 graphics card employing Dual GPU technology with the flagship Vega 56 GPUs on board. The announcement came at the VMworld event in Las Vegas as the device is expected to go live during the last quarter of 2018.
Based on a 14nm FinFET process, the Dual-GPU graphics is integrated with a 32GB Error Correcting code HBM2 memory and is designed for data-centric solutions. There are two slots that will be able to accommodate two Vega GPUs with AMD MxGPU Technology.
The graphics card will be able to provide 33 percent better performance to NVIDIA’s Tesla P40 due to the additional 8 modules of 1GB HBM memory. When two Vega 56 GPUs are used, the card will be able to employ 7168 stream processors and 112 compute units, ideal for data centres.
The Radeon Pro V340 also comes with AMD’s MxGPU technology which lets multiple users share a very high performing GPU in a secure, workstation manner through the cloud. The device thus supports up to 32 users per cards since there are 2 GPUs using 32 GB of HBM2 memory. This thus gives cloud gaming solutions and Desktop as a Service (DaaD) a more realistic experience due to high data density, fast frame bugger and encryptor boot.
Additional features include Integrated Encode Engine that supports both H.264 and H.265 formats, Remote Management for static and dynamic GPU information and HMB memory solution for an ultra-fast frame buffer. The AMD Radeon Pro V340 graphics is expected to start shipping by Q4 2018 with prices for the same yet to be revealed.
