AMD unveils Radeon Pro V340 graphics card
New offering delivers accelerated performance and high user density to power data centre visualisation workloads
Chip maker AMD has launched the Radeon Pro V340 graphics card, a high-performance dual-GPU virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution purpose-built to power and accelerate the most demanding data centre visualisation workloads, including CAD, design, desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) and rendering.
According to the company, the Radeon Pro V340 graphics card is a dual-GPU solution based on the advanced AMD "Vega" architecture, optimised to deliver extreme performance and high user density for virtualised environments.
AMD said it is the first VDI hardware solution equipped with 32GB of ultra-fast, second-generation high-bandwidth memory, providing massive amounts of memory and bandwidth for the most complex design and media workloads.
"As the flagship of our new Radeon Pro V-series product line, the Pro V340 graphics card employs advanced security features and helps to cost effectively deliver and accelerate modern visualisation workloads from the datacenter," said Ogi Brkic, general manager of Radeon Pro at AMD.
"The AMD Radeon Pro V340 graphics card will enable our customers to securely leverage desktop and application virtualisation for the most graphically demanding applications," added Sheldon D'Paiva, director of product marketing at VMware. "With Radeon Pro for VMware, admins can easily set up a VDI environment, rapidly deploy virtual GPUs to existing virtual machines and enable hundreds of professionals with just a few mouse clicks."
Calvin Hsu, vice president, Product Marketing at Citrix, said: "With increased density, faster frame buffer and enhanced security, the AMD Radeon Pro V340 graphics card delivers a powerful new choice for our customers to power their Citrix Workspace, even for the most demanding applications."
