First victim of the upcoming Vega GPU

It appears that AMD's Radeon Pro Duo, based on two Fiji GPUs and 4GB of HBM1 per GPU, is the first victim of the upcoming Vega GPU architecture as it has seen a massive price cut pushing it from US $1499 down to US $799.

Spotted by, the Radeon Pro Duo was available at but it is currently out of stock, so it is possible that it will show up again. Back when it was launched almost a year ago, the Radeon Pro Duo was marketed as the perfect graphics card for both 4K gaming and professional content creation, packing 16 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance with two Fiji GPUs.

At its current US $799 price, the Radeon Pro Duo certainly offers a lot of performance with 4096 Stream Processors, 64 ROPs and 256TMUs, per GPU, as well as 4GB of HBM1 memory per GPU. Both GPUs work at 1000MHz while HBM1 is clocked at 500MHz, providing 512GB/s of memory bandwidth on a 4096-bit memory interface.

At US $799, there isn't a lot of choices as you could get either Radeon R9 Fury X or a heavily overclocked Geforce GTX 1080, so Radeon Pro Duo seems like a really good option.

AMD is obviously clearing its stock for the impending launch of its Vega GPU architecture, suggesting that we might see a similar Pro-branded graphics card packing the new Vega GPU as well.
