Footnotes
  1. AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2 is up to 2x faster in the AMD internal Dassault Systèmes® CATIA® main drive assembly model benchmark than AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2 when using the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 5100. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 13th, 2018 on a test system comprising of an Intel® Xeon® 8-core W-2145 @ 3.7GHz (4.5GHz max), 64GB RAM, Windows® 10 Fall Creators Update Professional 64-bit, AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 5100, AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2/AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2. Benchmark Application: AMD internal Dassault Systèmes® CATIA® main drive assembly model benchmark. The results correspond to the average visualization time per frame (in milliseconds). AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q2 visualization time: 9.5 ms. AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2 visualization time: 4.72 ms. Performance Differential: (9.5-4.72)/4.72*100 = ~101.27% faster performance with AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements/modelling and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RPS-23
