AMD launches Radeon Pro Duo in late April, more to follow

AMD’s ultra high-end Radeon Pro Duo video card will be in stores on April 26, online sources claim. The good news continues with the information that the first reviews of this new 3D monster will arrive sooner than expected due to an earlier confidential embargo end than previously expected. Apart from this the specs of the card have not changed in the meantime – the Radeon Pro Duo will have two Fiji GPUs with a total of 8192 stream processors, a TDP level of 350 watts and liquid cooling that will battle the heat the card emits.

In June of this year AMD will also announce the first video cards on the Polaris 10 GPU. The models will be called Radeon R9 490X and Radeon R9 490. The GPU will have 2304 stream processors of the GCN 4.0 generation, a 256-bit memory bus and 8 GB of GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory that will run at 6000 MHz. Another rumor claims that AMD will move the Radeon R9 Fury and Fury X video cards to the mainstream market after releasing the Radeon Pro Duo but this remains to be seen.

Of course it is too early to say anything about the prices of these video cards but given that here we are talking about high-end models, there’s no way they will be cheap.
