AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional Graphics Review
AMD recently announced new Radeon PRO GPUs with RDNA3 architecture, the AMD Radeon Pro W7900 & W7800. These are flagship workstation solutions based on AMD Navi 31 RDNA3 architecture, delivering significantly higher performance than the previous generation
Today we are reviewing AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional graphics card designed for heavy workstation workloads. Radeon PRO W7800 graphics card features 70 Compute Units, with 45 TFLOPS (FP32) peak single precision performance and 32GB of GDDR6 memory all to operate within 260W Total board power.
World’s First PRO Chiplet GPU
The world’s first workstation GPUs with a chiplet design provide higher performance and greater efficiency than the previous generation. It includes the new 5nm Graphics Compute Die (GCD) that provides the core GPU functionality. It also includes six new 6nm Memory Cache Die (MCD), each with second-generation AMD Infinity Cache™ technology.
AMD RDNA 3 Architecture
New compute units share resources between rendering, AI, and raytracing to make the most effective use of each transistor, offering approximately 50% more raytracing performance per compute unit than the previous generation3. AMD RDNA 3 architecture also features optimizations for AEC, D&M, and M&E workflows for rendering, video editing, and multitasking.
New Dual Media Engine
Dual encode/decode media engines unlock new multi-media experiences with full AV1 encode/decode support designed for high resolutions, wide color gamut, and high-dynamic range enhancements
AMD Radiance Display Engine with DisplayPort 2.1
Supports the highest resolutions and over 68 billion colors, and offers support for higher refresh rate displays compared to AMD RDNA 2 architecture and current competitive offerings. Display outputs support next-generation displays and multi-monitor configuration options, creating an ultra-immersive visual environment.
Exceptional Workstation Performance
he AMD Radeon PRO W7000 Series graphics cards compliment the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO processors by providing the horsepower necessary to handle demanding creative, production and visualization workloads quickly and efficiently. AMD Radeon PRO Series workstation graphics and Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors provide exceptional performance, reliability, and stability to power mission-critical professional applications.
AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional graphics card comes in a securely packaged box with Brand name and product picture highlights on front of the box.
For testing we used AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional graphics card along with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7980X Processor, ASUS Pro WS TRX50-SAGE WIFI motherboard and GSKILL Zeta R5 Neo DDR5 R-DIMM 6400MHz Memory.

For testing the performance of the new AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional graphics card, we ran few graphics benchmarks.
V-Ray GPU CUDA
- High Performance gains with RDNA3 architecture
- 256-bit Memory Interface
- 32 GB GDDR6 ECC Memory
- DisplayPort 2.1 supports 8K at 60Hz with full color
AMD Radeon PRO W7800 32 GB GDDR6 Professional graphics card using RDNA3 chiplet GPU architecture provided nice performance results in different benchmarks we tested with. It clearly shows that this new AMD GPU family has started delivering advantages in workstation environment that too at a much lower price point (considering Profession GPU's price metrics) .
Also AMD with Radeon PRO W7800 graphics card introduced big new features like the new dual media engine for encode/decode, the next-generation DisplayPort 2.1 for a high-end 8K display used in a graphics workstation environment and many more.
Finally in the workstation GPU market, considering the performance shown by AMD Radeon PRO W7800 Professional Graphics along with AMD’s inclusion of new technologies, especially like DisplayPort 2.1 and more. And also with the relatively higher performance per dollar value given by this Radeon PRO W7800 Professional Graphics makes it worthy of our PC TeK Reviews VALUE Award.
