New AMD Radeon Pro VII defeats Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000

AMD has unveiled its new Radeon Pro VII GPU that offers 16GB of HBM2 (High Bandwidth Memory) and supports up to 6 display outputs via DisplayPort 1.4. It utilizes the latest 4th gen PCIe 4.0 x16 interface that provides substantial bandwidth improvement over the previous PCIe 3.0 technology. The new AMD Radeon Pro VII GPU is capable enough to beat the powerful NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 DDR6 16GB GPU in 8K video editing workflows.

Along with the GPU, AMD also released a new update for the Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise as well as new plugins that enable Radeon ProRenderer software integration into SideFX Houdini & Unreal Engine. Coming back to the GPU!

Coming back to the GPU now. It brings AMD Infinity Fabric Link technology to the workstation market that enables GPU to GPU communication in multi-GPU system configurations.

According to the tests, the new Radeon Pro VII provides up to 26% higher 8K image processing performance than the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 in Davinci Resolve. With up to 6.5 (FP64) TFLOPS, it offers up to 5.6x the double-precision (FP64) performance than Quadro RTX 5000.

Below you can find the comparison tables for the new Radeon Pro VII vs Quadro RTX 5000. Note that the results will according to the system configurations. For more information, please visit AMD’s official website.
