Apple's New AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo & W6900X Graphics Cards

Today AMD announced availability of the new AMD Radeon™ PRO W6000X series GPUs for Mac Pro. The new GPU product line delivers exceptional performance and incredible visual fidelity to power a wide variety of demanding professional applications and workloads, including 3D rendering, 8K video compositing, color correction and more.

Built on groundbreaking AMD RDNA 2 architecture, AMD Infinity Cache and other advanced technologies, the new workstation graphics line-up includes the AMD Radeon™ PRO W6900X and AMD Radeon™ PRO W6800X GPUs. Mac Pro users also have the option of choosing the AMD Radeon PRO W6800X Duo graphics card, a dual-GPU configuration that leverages high-speed AMD Infinity Fabric interconnect technology to deliver outstanding levels of compute performance.


AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo

Each discrete GPU within the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo shares its specification with the Radeon RX 6800, so you can essentially copy and paste the high-end gaming chip to make up one Radeon Pro W6800X Duo.

One graphics card, two GPUs. Each one featuring 60 RDNA 2 CUs for a total of 3,840 cores per chip. That's 7,680 in total, which for a little perspective is 50% more cores than the Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Where the Radeon Pro card differs from Radeon gaming cards is memory capacity, which is standard procedure for a workstation card such as this. There's 32GB of GDDR6 memory per GPU on the W6800X Duo, for a total of 64GB.

Key capabilities and features of AMD Radeon PRO W6000X series GPUs include:

  • Award-Winning AMD RDNA 2 Architecture – Built on the 7nm manufacturing process, AMD RDNA 2 architecture offers an array of advanced features elevating professional graphics to new levels of performance and efficiency.

  • High-speed GDDR6 memory – Up to 64GB of GDDR6 memory with up to 512 GB/s bandwidth provides ultra-fast transfer speeds to power data-intensive professional applications.

  • AMD Infinity Cache – Up to 256MB (total) of last-level data cache integrated on the GPU die is designed to reduce latency and power consumption.

  • AMD Infinity Fabric – Provides a high-bandwidth, low latency, direct connection between the local AMD GPUs, enabling high speed GPU-to-GPU communications designed to satisfy today’s creative workloads.
