AMD Radeon Pro Graphics Cards Buyers Guide

What is an AMD Radeon Pro GPU / Graphics Card?

When it comes to a professional graphics workstation nothing is more important than knowing that what appears on-screen is accurate and colour correct. For these reasons we recommend artists, engineers and scientists choose a professional graphics card from the AMD Radeon Pro WX range.

AMD is regularly updating its product range using the latest architectures such as a 7nm process, as opposed to the more common 14nm. This can make it confusing to know if you’re buying the latest and greatest version, so we’ll point out the where this latest technology has been applied, as it isn’t necessarily on the most expensive models.

The AMD Radeon Pro Hierarchy

The AMD Radeon Pro WX range of cards spans from a cost of £130 to over £1,700, with the higher end models being optimised for running specific workflows such as BIM, visualisation and VR. To make the selection process a little easier to discern, we’ve split the various cards into ultra-high-end, high-end, mid-range and entry-level segments
