AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 Professional Graphics Card Review

We tested the AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 in an Armari Magnetar S16T-RD1000G2 workstation. This is a hugely powerful workstation based around AMD’s phenomenal new Ryzen Threadripper 2950X processor, backed with 32GB of 3,000MHz DDR4 SDRAM.

For comparison, we pitted the WX 8200 against NVIDIA’s Quadro P4000 and P5000. For reference, for some tests we also included results from the Armari Magnetar S32T-RD1000G2, as this came with AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 graphics. However, as the CPU and RAM setup were different for this machine, these results can’t be directly compared, although most of the GPU-focused software used for testing would have derived virtually identical results using the primary hardware platform in this test.

Where the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X is essentially two Ryzen 7 2700X CPUs packaged together, the Threadripper 2990WX is essentially four of them. The main difference other than core count is therefore how high the single cores can go with less multi-threaded software.

Software:

Maxon Cinebench R15
SPECviewperf 13
VRMark Advanced Edition
Blender 2.79b
Blender Benchmark 1.0b2
