AMD Introduces New Professional Graphics Vision and Strategy

At an exclusive event for some of the world’s top artists, designers and engineers, AMD today unveiled powerful new solutions to address modern content creation and engineering: the new Radeonآ™ Pro WX Series of professional graphics cards.

  • Emergence of virtual reality

  • Popularity of new low-overhead APIs, such as DirectXآ® 12 and Vulkanآ™
