AMD FirePro Graphics Cards

Realistic Design Without Compromise

AMD Series W professional graphics cards have been designed for advanced SOLIDWORKS workflow and simultaneous engineering, combining complex CAD modelling with sophisticated rendering and simulation (CAE). Unlike consumer graphics, the AMD Professional graphics cards provide a number of GPU accelerated features and SOLIDWORKS-specific optimisations, delivering increased realism, ground-breaking performance and greater interactivity for designers and engineers.

Powerful real-time previews: RealView and Ambient Occlusion enable SOLIDWORKS 2017 to offer advanced shading in real time with outstanding depth and realism, helping to reduce the need for ray-traced rendering.

Key Features

GPU-accelerated Transparency Mode

Order Independent Transparency (OIT) is available for SOLIDWORKS 2014 and 2015. OIT provides a “pixel-accurate” representation of the model and its surrounding geometry and delivers significant performance improvement over traditional blended mode because it is accelerated by the AMD Professional GPU. This creates a more practical transparent 3D viewpoint for designers to continuously work within, helping improve the user’s sense of “design intuition” and aid in better decision-making throughout the product development stages.

World’s First 28nm GPU Architecture

The AMD Professional W5000 graphics card is based on AMD’s latest Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. This design efficiently balances computer tasks with 3D workloads, enabling multi-tasking that is designed to optimize utilisation and maximise performance.

PCI Express 3.0

The latest AMD Professional graphics cards are PCI Express 3.0 compliant, helping reduce system bottlenecks and providing users more bandwidth on heavy workloads.

AMD Eyefinity Technology

Ready for 4K Displays: with support of the latest DisplayPort 1.2 standard, AMD Professional graphics cards with AMD Eyefinity technology can now be used with the latest 4K monitors and enable workflows that provide incredible, life-like details of your 3D models.

The workhorse of the range.
