AMD Unveils Radeon Pro WX 3200: A Professional Graphics Card for Sub-$200by Anton Shilov on July 2, 2019 3:00 PM EST

AMD on Tuesday introduced one of the industry’s most affordable professional graphics cards with drivers certified by leading vendors of CAD/CAM software. The Radeon Pro WX 3200 comes in a low-profile single-slot form-factor and can address the most compact workstations available today.
The AMD Radeon Pro WX 3200 is based on the company's Polaris architecture GPU featuring 640 stream processors that offers up to 1.66 TFLOPS of single precision compute performance. The card carries 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and has four mini DisplayPort 1.4 outputs to drive four 4K displays, or two 5K monitors, or one 8K LCD.
The Radeon Pro WX 3200 card fully supports 10-bit color required by professional graphics applications. Since the board is designed for mainstream CAD/CAM projects it comes with certificates from such ISVs as Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault, Siemens, and others for Windows 10 and Linux operating systems.
Since the card is extremely small (it is just 6.6 inch/168 mm long), it is compatible with almost any desktop workstation that has a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and can supply up to 50 W of power to the board.
AMD’s Radeon Pro WX 3200 replaces the company’s Radeon Pro WX 3100 board introduced two years ago and brings in enhanced performance along with refined software. Just like its predecessor, the new card will retail for $199

wolrah - Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - linkIs your "Source: AMD" link supposed to be going to a Youtube video if some Russian TV show?
GreenReaper - Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - linkThey're interviewing an AMD representative. Can't you tell by the red mugs?
ballsystemlord - Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - linkThat is really strange, maybe we should check their links for them more often.
Or maybe it's another attack on the American voting system. :)
Slash3 - Wednesday, July 3, 2019 - linkWe're on to you, Anton!
Dragonstongue - Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - linkGDDR5 = automatic ECC if the AIB will use to "max" potential is their call (likely not for the price point)
as for other knucklehad below no ecc no pci-e 4 "pass"
even pcie 2.0 at x8 can feed something like this perfectly fine.
mode_13h - Thursday, July 4, 2019 - linkNot sure what you mean by "automatic ECC".
Funny enough, the virtually-identical RX 550 only has x8 lanes enabled (still a x16 connector, though). Whether it's possible to contrive a scenario where PCIe 2.0 x8 would have a measurable impact, I agree that it would be GPU-bottlenecked in real world use cases.
However, one small consideration would be that increasing bus bandwidth will typically reduce latency, even if slightly. This might help with VR (on a more powerful card, that can actually *do* VR), where a couple miliseconds' stutter can potentially have nauseating consequences.
Smell This - Thursday, July 4, 2019 - linkI think the point of the **no ECC** is that this is a 'high-yield' entry-level 50w pro card on a mature process. It is effectively Polaris gravy with nearly 600 dies on a 300mm wafer that includes 2 dozen+ Lexa variants.
Phynaz - Tuesday, July 2, 2019 - linkJeez, AMD must need to harvest every single die they can.
AshlayW - Wednesday, July 3, 2019 - linkThey don't have any other silicon for a card like this. Vega wasn't scaled down this far and Navi hasn't even released yet. I think this is Polaris "12" aka Lexa, it's like 100mm2. it's adorable.
Polaris hasn't been replaced in this Performance tier yet.
