At VMworld Las Vegas, AMD unveiled the Radeon™ Pro V340 graphics card, a high-performance dual-GPU Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution built to power the most demanding data center visualization workloads, including CAD, design, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and rendering.

Seismic shifts in the modern workforce, compounded by the explosion of data, are driving an unprecedented need for cloud-based visualization workloads. Nearly three quarters (75 percent) of the workforce will be mobile by 2020, and the size of the digital universe will double every two years.

The Radeon Pro 340 is designed to meet these evolving enterprise demands. Based on the advanced AMD “Vega” architecture, it is the first VDI solution equipped with 32GB of ultra-fast, second-generation high-bandwidth memory, delivering extreme performance and high user density for virtualized environments.

The Radeon Pro V340 provides a number of advanced features and technologies, including:

  • Superior User Density: Supports up to 32 1GB virtual machines, up to 33 percent more than competitive solutions.
  • Integrated Encode Engine: The ability to compress independent video streams in both H.264 and H.265 formats. Provides design and manufacturing users with the video quality they expect, while empowering IT managers to eliminate CPU bottlenecks.
  • Ultra-Fast Frame Buffer: Error Correcting Code (ECC) Memory and better power efficiency than competing solutions allow fast paging apps to run incredibly fast.

AMD MxGPU Technology

The graphics card is enabled by AMD’s MxGPU technology, the industry’s only hardware-based GPU virtualization solution based on the industry-standard SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) technology. Combining software and hardware technologies delivering virtualized graphics for the modern cloud, AMD MxGPU delivers fast, predictable performance with the industry’s highest user density, without requiring recurring end-user license fees. 

The Radeon Pro V340 is expected to be available in Q4 2018 from leading system providers.
