According to recent sources, on the User Benchmark database, AMD’s next-generation Radeon Pro W6800 graphics card for workstations has just made its entry. The card belongs to the upcoming Radeon Pro W6000 family which will be entirely based on the RDNA 2 graphics architecture & replacing the older AMD Navi and Vega-based workstation offerings.
From the database, it was reported that the AMD Radeon Pro W6800 has the ‘1002 73A3, 1002 0E1E’ Device ID and features a Big Navi GPU. Not many details have been leaked as of yet, however, the card does feature 32 GB of VRAM and its GDDR6. The card is also reported to feature 128 MB of Infinity Cache.
In benchmark scores, performance was evaluated within DX9 and DX10 workloads, and the AMD Radeon Pro W6800 has scored 159 and 131 FPS respectively. The Radeon RX 6800 scores 139 / 126 FPS, the Radeon RX 6800 XT scores 168 / 153 FPS while the Radeon RX 6900 XT scores 197 / 183 FPS. So we can state that up till now the card looks like a decent performance.
However, the performance will certainly improve because the Radeon RX 6000 series gaming graphics cards enjoy a far better driver optimization. And the unreleased Radeon Pro W6000 cards don’t have the same privilege.
In terms of performance, the card is closer to the Radeon RX 6800 XT in specifications than the Radeon RX 6800. The card is soon expected to be launched in the coming months and we can hear the announcement from AMD in the coming weeks.
