AMD Releases Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1: Adds Limited Support for Consumer Radeon Cards
This week, AMD released their Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 WHQL.
Headlining this release, on the heels of the launch of the prosumer-oriented Radeon VII, AMD is introducing Radeon Pro Software compatibility for many of their consumer parts. Under the program, certain Radeon consumer cards, including R5 300, R7, and RX series products will be able to install the Radeon Pro drivers. These products, in turn will be able to access certain professional features of the Radeon Pro drivers, but lack the all-critical certifications and optimizations that typically set the Pro drivers apart. Meanwhile for the new Radeon VII, AMD has announced that support is due soon, but isn't available at lanch.
More on enterprise matters, similar to the continual push for day-0 video game support in AMD's regular Radeon Software, the company is stressing their efforts in day-0 ISV certification for professional applications. By AMD’s count, 431 application/OS/device configuration certifications are included in 19.Q1, largely covering the Radeon Pro WX series but also some FirePro cards as well. AMD also cites year-over-year improvements in CAD/workstation software, as seen in SPECviewperf 13 performance increases over Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q1.
19.Q1 additionally improves AMD Remote Workstation to fully support Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, as well as bringing support for workstation wireless VR in Unreal Studio and SolidWorks eDrawings. This quarterly release also integrates Virtual Super Resolution into a professional feature called Radeon Pro Image Boost, which looks to improve image quality by scaling down an image rendered at higher than native resolution (up to 5K).
And lastly on their eGPU technology, AMD XConnect with Radeon ProRender support allows acceleration by both internal GPU and external Radeon Pro GPU for certain configurations.
