You would have to be a CAD to use this

By

As workstations utilise smaller footprints, the ability to fit and cool high performance graphics cards becomes harder.

AMD have announced the FirePro W4300 for Computer-Aided Design (CAD) performance that fits small form factor (SFF) and tower workstations. It is optimised for the latest CAD applications including Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor as well as Revit, Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS and CATIA, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, and many more.

Engineering professionals can efficiently work with large geometry-intense models and apply GPU-accelerated features in their projects, such as the new Order Independent Transparency (OIT) mode supported in SOLIDWORKS. Users can help increase productivity by visualising their workflows across up to six displays, and up to 4K and 5K resolution.

“We designed the AMD FirePro W4300 specifically for CAD,” said Sean Burke, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “CAD users rely on AMD FirePro graphics cards to enable their application features to best visualise their designs, and now can continue to do so without having to compromise by using the latest energy efficient, small form factor workstations.”

Based on AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture the card features:

  • 4GB GDDR5 GPU memory to improve workflow application responsiveness.
  • AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology that allows the use of up to six ultra-high resolution displays, helping users to multitask across multiple applications and displays.
  • Four DisplayPort 1.2a connections standard (with support for up to six DisplayPort monitors via MST-enabled hub) and AMD FreeSync technology3 that enables GPU control of the display refresh rate for tear-free display updates, critical for media and entertainment applications and workflows.
  • OpenCL 2.0 support enabling developers to take advantage of new features that give GPUs more freedom to do the work they are designed to do.
  • Unique power monitoring and management technologies plus the maximum power consumption of 50W in a low-profile form factor. AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimises GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle.
  • Certification on more than 100 different applications for improved performance and reliability, including the most popular design and engineering and media and entertainment applications. AMD FirePro professional graphics drivers are released several times each year and include performance and feature improvements.

Availability from major CAD workstation OEMs will start from 2016.
