AMD launches the Radeon Pro W7700: a new GPU in the previously introduced W7000 series tailored to workstations. The line-up now has three tickets, of which this one is by far the cheapest.
AMD introduces the Radeon pro W7700. That’s a new graphics card in the W7000 line-up. AMD launched it at the beginning of this year with the Pro W7900 and Pro W7800. Both GPUs were powerhouses, with corresponding price tags of $3,999 and $2,499 respectively; The new Radeon Pro W7700 is a lot cheaper, with a suggested retail price of $999.

For that money you still get a decent card. The GPU has 48 compute units, 96 AI accelerators and 16 GB of GDDR6 (EEC) memory with an associated bandwidth of 576 GB/s. At a TDP of 190 watts, these specifications are good for 28 TFLOPS (FP32), according to AMD itself. AMD is firmly on the price card with the GPU, and notes that its chip is the most powerful custom workstation chip under $1,000. The thing is intended for content creation, CAD, or (slightly lighter) AI work.
Less for less
Like the other cards from the Radeon Pro W7000 line-up, this GPU is based on RDNA 3, but it is clear that the implementation is a lot lighter. The previously launched cards had 96 and 70 CUs, with 48 GB and 32 GB of GDDR6 memory. Not everyone needs such quantities and AMD thinks a more modest card with a more modest asking price will meet with enthusiasm.
