Matrox' new gfx cards with AMD gpus

Recommended Posts

Built in FrameLock  ;) 
On the other hand, 2 Gb memory for six 4k outputs seems a bit meager. iono.gif

 

 

I have never seen that locking MiniDisplayPort connector before, definately looks like an improvement.

"...Reportedly based on the same GPU as AMD FirePro W600." ??

 

Not so attractive then. Sounds more like a re-packaging by another company. But the products look attractive!

The framelock seem to be board-to-board, so won't benefit Watchout users....unless WO6 allows multiple gfx cards in one pc...hint...hint...:)

Here's a bit more, from Anandtech:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/8480/matrox-to-use-amd-gpus-in-their-next-generation

 

"The announcement states that "key features of the selected AMD GPU include 28nm technology with 1.5 billion transistors; DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.4 and OpenCL 1.2 compatibility; shader model 5.0; PCI Express 3.0 and 128-bit memory interface."
 
From that we can surmise that Matrox will be using a variant of the Cape Verde GCN core, which is one of the lower performance GCN parts from AMD. In fact, Matrox may actually be using AMD's FirePro W600 cards, only with custom Matrox-developed software applications"
 
 
And KitGuru:
 
"The new generation of Matrox graphics solutions will be based on AMD’s code-named Cape Verde graphics processing unit (GCN 1.0 architecture, 640 stream processors, 40 texture units, 16 raster operating units, 128-bit memory bus) that powers AMD Radeon R7 250X/AMD Radeon 7700-series graphics cards. Thanks to support for DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.4, OpenCL 1.2 and other new technologies, Matrox’s graphics adapters will finally be able to offer modern features and capabilities already provided by other graphics solutions."
 
 
Still interesting to try them out, I think
