For workstations that run computer-aided design (CAD), computer-generated imagery (CGI), virtual reality development, and other intensive applications, ordinary gaming GPUs won’t cut it. What’s needed for these tasks are professional GPUs, such as AMD’s Radeon Pro line. The said line of GPUs have just been given the newest Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2.
Continuing its commitment to quarterly Enterprise Driver releases, AMD has just rolled out the new Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver, 17.Q2, bringing enterprise support to Radeon Pro and AMD FirePro workstation & VDI users with AMD’s unified driver.
Today’s Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2 adds a host of new features and enhancements to deliver the stability, security and performance so critical for enterprise users:
- Radeon Pro Software “One Driver”: With the innovative “one driver” feature, which only AMD offers enterprises, professionals only need a single driver to support all graphics hardware needs — Radeon Pro, AMD FirePro, or Radeon– and still benefit from Radeon Pro Software’s stability, reliability, as well as easier deployment for IT admins. AMD is making the Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2 with “one driver” support available exclusively to enterprise customers, and those wishing to implement it will need to contact their AMD Sales Representative or fill in the request form here.
- Professional-grade Radeon Pro Software Security: Ensures that your data is continuously protected from potential threats like malware and unsafe code from the minute you start up your workstation, in daily workflows or VDI cloud environments until you shut it down.
- Enhanced performance: Delivers up to a 34 per cent boost for enterprise professionals using VDI over the Radeon Enterprise Driver 17.Q1 in PTC, Creo, medical, and energy workflows.
- When tested with SPECviewperf 12.1, the AMD FirePro S7150 x2 delivers up to 29 per cents better performance in the PTC Creo-01 viewset benchmark than with the 17.Q1 driver, up to 33 per cent better performance in the SPECviewperf 12.1 medical-01 viewset benchmark, and up to 34 per cent better performance in the SPECviewperf 12.1 energy-01 viewset benchmark.
With the latest driver installment, enterprise users will continue to benefit from Radeon Pro Software’s rock-solid performance, broad certification, 24/7 Radeon Pro support, and features like Radeon Pro ReLive and AMD LiquidVR technology.
