GCN based AMD FirePro W600


AMD has announced its newest addition to the FirePro professional graphics card lineup - the 28nm GCN based FirePro W600.

In addition to the previously introduced FirePro 2460, 2270, V7900 and V9800, FirePro W600 joins the multi-screen capable crowd that supports up to six high-resolution displays or projectors. In the case of FirePro W600, these six screens or projectors are connected via six mini-DisplayPort 1.2 outputs. The FirePro W600 features PCI-Express x16 3.0 interface and, with its TDP set at 75W, does not require additional power.

The rest of the specs include 2GB of GDDR5 graphics memory, support for simultaneous decoding of two HD video streams via AMD's UVD, projection overlap capability to create one seamless image, planned support for projection edge blending and image wrapping that comes in Q4 2012. The card also features AMD PowerTune technology, which dynamically optimizes power consumption on the fly, as well as AMD ZeroCore Power technology, which reduces idle power consumption.

The new FirePro W600 graphics card is cooled by a single slot, slim-fan cooler. The actual price or availability have not been announced as of yet. You can check out more details over at AMD's product page here.
