[Various] Radeon Pro W5700 reviews/coverage

If your productivity is bottlenecked by rendering performance, and your GPU is more than a year or two old, you’ll clearly see some noticeable speedups by upgrading to a W5700. On the other hand, if you already have a current model workstation GPU, the W5700 isn’t going to blow you away. In either case, if AI is an important part of your workload, be cautious about upgrading unless you can assure yourself that your tools will run on the W5700. If you’re shopping for a workstation GPU, the $799 price tag of the W5700 puts it very close to Nvidia’s Quadro RTX 4000. And at least according to AMD’s benchmarks, it offers some advantages in floating-point and especially in combined CPU-plus-GPU performance.

Quote:
The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 is being launched today at a somewhat aggressive price-point of $799. At that price, the Radeon Pro W5700 undercuts both the Radeon Pro WX 8200 and the Quadro RTX 4000 by about 10% - 20%. The new GPU architecture powering the Radeon Pro W5700 makes it better suited to certain types of workloads, as our testing has shown, so it’s not likely to be appealing to creative professionals across the board. However, if your application use case happens to be one where the card shines, the Radeon Pro W5700 is a solid choice. For certain workloads, the Radeon Pro W5700 offers class-leading performance, in a quieter, more power-friendly, affordable package than its Vega-based predecessors.
Basically "205W" Navi 10 vs RTX 4000 (a Quadro 160W version of RTX 2070 that sells for around $800-$900)

Quote:
The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 marks a solid, if not standout debut for AMD’s new 7nm ‘Navi’ RDNA architecture, delivering a level of performance that should satisfy most designers, and architects looking beyond CAD and exploring real time viz and VR. At $799 SEP the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 will likely have a lower street price than the Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 but will it be enough to turn heads away?
Prospective buyers also need to consider how important RTX is to their workflows now, or how important it might be in the future. Nvidia has the backing of some major software developers, both in architecture and manufacturing, and we can only see GPU ray tracing with RTX continue to grow.
In saying that, AMD has Radeon ProRender plus not all designers and engineers need ray trace rendering. Also, AMD has some other tricks up its sleeve, not least AMD Remote workstation. Most designers probably won’t notice a 10% difference in FPS but all will appreciate the flexibility of working from home.

Quote:
We have to admit that the W5700 surprised us with its super-strong performance in SPECviewperf. In SolidWorks, Siemens NX, and Maya, it led the pack, and traded blows based on resolution in CATIA. While super-high performance will be enjoyed by those with high-refresh monitors, it’s nice to know if there’s anything holding back performance, it’s not going to be the GPU.
Overall, AMD’s Radeon Pro W5700 is a great workstation graphics card for the money. Ultimately, though, what turns out to be the best choice for you will depend entirely on your workflows. It’s an unrelenting fact that it pays to know your workload, and as our results have highlighted once again, they’re all far from being alike.

Can't wait to see nVidia respond to AMD's advertising. Last time AMD did a comparison nVidia responded with actual results.

5700 Navi 10 but now 3x overpriced? No thanks. An under $200 would be an aggressive price point, this is robbery.

Remember this is for worstations, not gaming. So yes, while i might agree that its an expesive card for what you get, you do get workstation drivers and support and i believe a longer warranty and possibly a few other things.
Basically the stuff that appeals to companies and professionals not enthusiasts.
$599 is where i think it would be better priced to really undercut any Leather Jacket response.

RTX 20 series cards with Studio drivers are a better buy than both their Quadro 4000 and this card. Ever since the Titan was released for ML and now Studio drivers the only professional cards worth buying are cards with ECC memory.

The premium users are paying for is the privilege to install these cards into a server since using a GeForce card or Gaming Radeon card is considered against their ToS.

Studio drivers are no better than game ready drivers. studio drivers are just confirmed to be stable in creative applications like photoshop. that doesn't give access to certain feature though, which certain applications can use on professional level graphics. using NX on a laptop with a RTX 2080 and studio drivers gives me the same performance as with game ready drivers and the performance is abysmal. RTX 2080 is not ISV certified as it has features locked by nvidia's drivers. For CAD/CAM/CAE work, professional graphics are needed to use the full potential of tech. to give some perspective, i have a laptop that provides much better performance, with a measly quadro p620, than my desktop rtx 2080. the difference isn't nearly as severe on AMD cards apparently. AMD's gaming cards perform a lot better in NX than nvidia's gaming cards.

Again, it matters on what applications you use. Most applications used in engineering, medical and science industries greatly benefit from the other options that are unlocked from usage of professional graphics drivers. that said, yes, ECC memory is crucial in professional industries, where errors in simulations can cost someone's life if not found in time.

Doesnt RVII cost leess and has more compute performance (or am I wrong?) if I was a consumer a RVII would the best choice for me, I wonder if the RVII has a professional version like Founder Edition how much would have cost?
