AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series GPU: Price, Specs, Availability

Offers up to 3X higher performance than the previous generation

The AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series GPU for desktop and mobile workstations is now official and is designed for professionals, CAD designers, engineers, and office knowledge workers. The new AMD GPU promises to deliver exceptional performance, stability, and reliability.

AMD Radeon PRO W6400

This is built on the AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture and 6nm manufacturing process with 16MB of high-bandwidth, low latency, AMD Infinity Cache memory which acts as a bandwidth amplifier. It is optimized for CAD and office productivity use and thanks to its compact design, it can be easily installed on small form factor desktops.

Compared to the previous generation, the W6400 graphics card delivers up to three times higher performance in Autodesk AutoCAD 2022 during 3D orbit rotational tests in shaded modes and 87% higher performance in McNeel Rhino using the Holomark 2 benchmark with mesh, object, and model data stress tests. In addition, it offers performance gains in typical office applications and workloads such as video conferencing, e-mail, and web browsing.

AMD Radeon PRO W6500M and W6300M

The AMD W6000 Series also includes the W6500M and W6300M for professional mobile workstations. Both GPUs are also built on AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture with 6nm process technology and up to 8MB of AMD Infinity Cache memory.

AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series GPU key features:

  • AMD RDNA 2 Architecture: Delivers up to 94% faster performance over previous generation GCN architecture.
  • AMD Infinity Cache Memory Technology: Up to 16MB cache (L3) integrated on the GPU designed to reduce latency and power consumption.
  • Advanced Features: Offers standard features such as hardware-accelerated raytracing, remote working capabilities, 8K display support, PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 high-speed data transfer, VR creator support, HDR Ready support and Quad-buffer stereo.
  • Viewport Boost: Designed to improve frame rates in GPU-limited scenarios by intelligently lowering the resolution only in scenarios where fast in-viewport movement is detected, and delivers interactivity improvement without an impact on image quality.
  • Application Certifications: Certified by Autodesk, Robert McNeel & Associates, and others.
