AMD brings supercomputing performance to VR​

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. 3/14/2016

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today introduced the world's most powerful platform for virtual reality (VR), capable of both creating and consuming VR content.  AMD's Radeon™ Pro Duo with its LiquidVR™ SDK is a platform aimed at most all aspects of VR content creation: from entertainment to education, journalism, medicine and cinema. With an astonishing 16 teraflops of compute performance, AMD offers a complete solution aimed at all aspects of the VR developer lifestyle: developing content more rapidly for tomorrow's killer VR experiences while at work, and playing the latest DirectX® 12 experiences at maximum fidelity while off work.

AMD continues to solve major problems developers face by reducing latency and accelerating the VR pipeline through close collaboration with the content development community and with AMD LiquidVR™ technology. AMD's next step in advancing VR is with the new AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo, an incredibly advanced and powerful dual-GPU board that delivers the horsepower needed by VR designers, content creators, and for VR content consumers.

"More powerful computing platforms are rapidly leading to greater immersive experiences, said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. "This is most evident with VR which demands ever higher compute performance with rock solid consistency. Our new AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo with our LiquidVR™ SDK is the world's fastest platform for both content creation and consumption1, enabling a world class graphics and VR experience."

AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo is the initial product of the AMD VR Ready Creator line. The AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo with the LiquidVR™ SDK is also the platform of choice for Crytek's VR First™ initiative for nurturing new talent in the field of virtual reality development by powering virtual reality labs in colleges and universities worldwide.

"As a state of the art platform, the AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo with the LiquidVR™ SDK is the perfect choice as the graphics standard for Crytek's VR First™ initiative," said Cevat Yerli, CEO, Crytek. "As a graphics card that bridges the needs of both VR content creators and content consumers, it's extremely fitting hardware to supply to the brightest up-and-coming developers, who will surely shape the future of virtual reality and immersive computing."

The AMD Radeon Pro Duo is planned for availability in early Q2 2016 at an anticipated SEP of $1499 USD. You can learn more about the AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo here.
