Adding to the longstanding and ongoing pioneering work and collaboration we have been doing with Intel on external graphics solutions over Thunderbolt® 3 with AMD XConnect™ technology which enabled the first hot plug and play support for external graphics, AMD is introducing external GPU (eGPU) support for Radeon Pro WX Series graphics, giving professionals the power and flexibility they need to create wherever and whenever inspiration strikes. Many creative professionals don’t want to be tied to their desktops or locked into proprietary tools, and with AMD’s open ecosystem of software and tools, the new eGPU solution frees people from these limitations.



Working together with Sonnet Technologies, users of compatible mobile workstation can now harness more graphics horsepower for workstation class applications and compute use cases, overcoming the limitations of many standard integrated GPU offerings.


Available today, the Radeon™ Pro WX 5100 and Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 cards are now compatible with Sonnet’s eGFX Breakaway Box.

The Radeon Pro WX 5100 and Radeon Pro WX 7100 cards are available from e-tailers today with a suggested e-tail price (SEP) of $499 USD and $799 USD.

Come to our booth at IBC Hall 7, Stand 35 and witness this solution in action!
