Once upon a time, both AMD and NVIDIA made a lot of single-card and dual-core products, but for various reasons they no longer play them, and the only one in the consumer market today is the AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo.
Launched in August 2021, it was designed for the Mac Pro,Two RDNA2 Navi 21 chips are integrated and connected to each other through AMD Infinity Fabric high-speed bus. There are a total of 120 groups of computing units, 7680 stream processors (peak core frequency nearly 2GHz), 256MB unlimited cache, 64GB video memory, and 400W power consumption of the entire card.
Apple offered a hefty price tag33,000 yuan, but oddly, it's 7,500 yuan cheaper than a single-core Radeon Pro W6900X(5120 stream processor /32GB video memory /300W).
It uses something unique to AppleMPX interfaceHowever, Apple also provides standard PCIe x16 ports and custom ports for auxiliary power supply.
Der8auer, a high-end German gamer, recently got his hands on a Radeon Pro W6800X Pro, installed it on a Z790 motherboard via a PCIe x16 expansion card, and lit it up using a 12VHPWR power cord that was soldered with two 12V and two grounded to Apple's custom ports.
The standard AMD Adrenalin driver naturally can't be installed, but fortunately the Boot Camp driver does.
The test platform also has an i9-13900K processor and two 32GB DDR5-6000 DIMMs. The test project is 3DMark Time Spy Extreme GT1.
The W6800X Duo scored 97.21, about 4 percent higher than the Asus ROG STRIX RTX 4080 and 8 percent higher than AMD's new flagship RX 7900 XTX, but still much lower than the RTX 4090 at 21 percent.
