AMD has unveiled two new RDNA3 professional graphics cards with up to 48 GB of memory and fan-style coolers. The two models include the Radeon Pro W7900 and the Radeon Pro W7800, with 96 and 70 compute units respectively. Both GPUs are designed for content creators and professionals who require high levels of computing power and memory capacity to handle high-performance workloads.
The Radeon Pro W7900 is currently the top-end version of the series, with 96 CPUs, 12,288 shader cores, and 48 GB of memory running on a 384-bit bus for a maximum memory bandwidth of 864 GB/s. AMD rates this GPU with up to 61 TFLOPS of FP32 compute performance with a total board power of 295 W. This GPU is the Pro version of the RX 7900 XTX, with the same core count and memory bus width as its mainstream counterpart. However, the most significant difference with the W7900 is its huge 48 GB memory capacity, allowing for much more professional work compared to the 7900 XTX.
The clock speeds are unknown, but it is expected that the base and boost clocks will be significantly lower than the reference RX 7900 XTX due to the lower board power of the W7900 board and the integration of a three-slot fan cooler.
The Radeon Pro W7800 is a mid-range piece with 70 CPUs, 8,960 shader cores, a 256-bit bus, with 32 GB of memory and 576 GB/s of memory bandwidth. AMD rates this GPU with up to 45 TFLOPS of FP32 compute performance, with a TBP rating of 260 W. This is a mid-range GPU with a complete degradation of GPU specifications across the board, with fewer shader cores than an RX 7900 XT. However, the GPU still offers great computing power and 32 GB of video memory, making it optimal for memory-sensitive workloads.
AMD did not mention clock speeds or cooler type, but it is expected that this card will have a fan cooler similar to the W7900 but with a smaller double-slot form factor.
The interesting part of the W7800 is that we can glimpse what the consumer variant would look like. The W7800 is the first RDNA3 mid-range GPU we've seen from AMD so far, and it shows the memory bus width and core count that AMD is targeting for its high-end mid-range GPUs. If the core count and memory specifications line up perfectly, like the W7900 and RX 7900 XTX, we can expect the future RX 7800 or 7800 XT to feature 8,960 cores and a 256-bit bus width.
Radeon Pro W7900 and W7800 are available now, and cards should start appearing in OEM and SI systems in the second half. The W7900 will be priced at $3,999, and the W7800 will be priced at $2,499.
