One of the users of Chinese forum ChipHell shared photos of engineering sample of AMD Radeon PRO professional graphics gas pedal based on RDNA 2 architecture. It should be noted at once that the insider himself is not yet sure what kind of graphics card model he got. At the same time, he confirmed that the novelty is equipped with 16 GB of video memory.
On one of the stickers located on the back of the video card labeled «Full Secure TT GLXL». According to the resource VideoCardz, previously with marking GLXL in the leaks figure graphics processor Navi 21. However, it is not clear how many stream processors there are specifically in this model of professional graphics gas pedal.
It should also be noted that the video card in the picture is equipped with an updated cooling system with a fan of tangential type. In the fan framing one can see a reference to the design of reference graphics cards Radeon RX 6000-series. Comparison of new Radeon PRO representative PCB with Radeon RX 6000-series reference graphics cards shows some differences with reference models of the latest AMD gaming graphics gas pedals series. For example, the Radeon PRO engineering sample has differently located connectors for additional power supply. At the same time, the capacitors behind the GPU are located almost identically to how they are in Navi 21 GPU-based gaming graphics cards.
