AMD is excited about its Polaris GPUs and upcoming Zen-based PC and server chips, which the company hopes will end years of struggles.
A step forward for AMD is the release soon of its Radeon Pro WX graphics cards, targeted at content creation for 4K games or virtual reality. These GPUs, based on the Polaris architecture, can also be used to create special effects for Hollywood movies.
The GPUs also support 5K video. The conversation today is about 4K, but AMD has decided to add support for the next-generation video resolution.
And if you desire, the GPUs can be used for gaming, but you may need to buy a high-powered workstation like HP’s Z or Apple’s Mac Pro. These systems are expensive, are more powerful than desktops, and in most cases, have server CPUs and larger memory capacity.
