AMD to release Hawaii-based FirePro graphics card in April

Published: 6th Mar 2014, 08:49 GMT


According to VR-Zone AMD will announce a new FirePro video card at NAB 2014, which starts on April 5th.

The new FirePro card would still use Wxxxx naming nomenclature, but it would not compete with the current flagship – FirePro W9000. VR-Zone sources reveal that Hawaii-based model will not replace the W9000, instead both cards will coexist on the market. Of course the new card would be considerably more expensive.

The new FirePro model is also said to feature more memory. Since W9000 has 6GB frame buffer, it is believed that Hawaii variant might arrive with 8GB on board, just like the upcoming Radeon R9 290X VAPOR-X from Sapphire.

The NAB 2014 Show starts on April 4th and ends on April 10th. NVIDIA will also have its booth at this event.
