For Enterprises, optimizing total cost of ownership is critical. Gaining an understanding of the maintenance and ongoing cost of the system you choose for your business is as imperative as making the initial purchase. Today we’re pleased to announce our third enterprise driver release of the year. AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3, continues to feature the stability, performance, security features, and image quality that our professional graphics users have come to expect and rely on. Read on to learn the highlights of what our new 20.Q3 enterprise driver delivers.

 

Improved Productivity with Year-Over-Year Performance Improvements
With the quarterly enterprise driver releases, the focus is on continuously optimizing performance in every release, in part thanks to the close collaborations we have with leading ISV application developers. That means if you want to boost your productivity and turbocharge your workflows, helping you become more efficient with every update, it pays to update to our latest driver. For example, Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3 is up to 15% faster in the geomean  SPECviewperf 13 benchmark viewsets than the 19.Q3 driver1. Because of our commitment to continual optimizations you can expect to see additional performance improvements over the lifetime of your Radeon Pro graphics card.

 

Rethink Power Efficiency with Intelligent Power Management
The driver’s intelligent power usage management capability enables select AMD Radeon Pro graphics cards to choose the optimal power for different professional application workflows, helping save power in your workspace. Streamlining and saving power consumption can help save money by lowering electricity costs. When using our AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3 driver, the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card used up to 42% less power than the competion.2

 

Radeon Pro is Designed for Multitasking
Today’s creative workflows very rarely involve working with one application at a time – you’re constantly switching between different applications and doing tasks in the foreground while you wait for more demanding tasks, such as rendering, to finish in the background. When it comes to multitasking AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise and AMD Radeon Pro graphics together deliver superior multitasking performance to our competition. For instance, when testing multi tasking,  AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card with Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3 provides up to 53% better multitasking performance versus the competition when running the SPECviewperf® 13 benchmark 3dsmax-06 modeling workflow.3

 

 Improved Image Quality for Better Decision Making

AMD Radeon Pro Image Boost delivers optimal clarity and pixel accurate results. Don’t waste time making a judgement call based on an unclear image, always-completed-frames output makes for better decision making, and time management.

1. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of July 2020, on a test system comprising of an, Intel Core i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz, 32 GB RAM, Asus Strix Z390-E motherboard Windows® 10 for Workstations 64-bit October v. 2004 Update, System BIOS 1.11.1 at default settings, Radeon™ Pro WX 9100, AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3 compared to AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q3 .Benchmark Application: ran the SPECviewperf® 13 benchmark and then calculated the geomean of all viewsets (higher is better). AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3: 150.43. AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q3: 131.19. Performance Differential: (150.43-131.19)/131.19*100 = ~14.7% better performance with AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q3 on the Radeon™ Pro WX 9100 graphics card.Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.SPEC®, and SPECviewperf® are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation.

Resulting in 41.6% more efficient power consumption from AMD. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RPS-129
