AMD has announced the chipmaker's new, high-performance Radeon Pro Vega II and Radeon Pro Vega II Duo workstation-class graphics cards that will be powering Apple's brand-new Mac Pro, which will be dropping this Fall.
The Radeon Pro Vega II arrives with 64 Compute Units, which is equivalent to 4,096 Stream Processors. The graphics card features a 1.7 GHz peak engine clock and delivers up to 14.2 TFLOPs of FP32 performance. AMD has endowed the Radeon Pro Vega II with 32GB of HBM2 memory across a 4,096-bit memory bus to pump out memory bandwidth up to 1 TB/s. The card features four ThunderBolt 3 ports and one HDMI 2.0 port.
AMD also offers the Radeon Pro Vega II Duo for consumers who need even more firepower. As its name implies, this monster is the product of combining two Vega 20 die onboard the same PCB. As a result, the Radeon Pro Vega II Duo comes with 128 Compute Units and 8,192 Stream Processors. It still runs with a 1.7 GHz peak engine clock but offer twice as much FP32 performance. The Radeon Pro Vega II Duo retains the 4,096-bit memory interface and 1 TB/s of memory bandwidth. However, it's decked out with 64GB of HBM2 memory.
Finally some more Vega 2 cards! No wonder why Lisa Su hinted we'll see more of Vega during Computex.
TWO (2) AMD RADEON PRO VEGA II GPUS: PRICE UNKNOWN, BUT LET’S SAY $12,000, MINIMUM
Here’s the tricky bit. AMD announced its Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs alongside the Mac Pro, which means we’ve got no idea how much it’ll cost to buy them. We also don’t know if you’ll even be able to buy them separately at all; depending on how Apple’s MDX Module system works, that might not be an option.
looks to be propriatry. surprised w/being apple and all?
Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
If you need help:
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

another pro duo out of the blue(from team red of all places)... guess theyre just trying to use up all the GCN dies they can before navi is in full swing. really hoping to see another x2 card pop up in the future anyways, especially since theyve done away with xfire and all. so is this gonna be RTX TI price point or in the titan/w9 premium coin?
Anyone else confused about this whole AMD Radeon Pro Vega II vs Radeon VII, I thought Radeon VII stood for Vega II but the announcement would suggest this Pro Vega II is a different release from the VII. During apple's keynote they specifically called it Radeon Vega II rather than Radeon 7.
EDIT: Nevermind. Just read the article and all the questions will be answered.
