“Based on the Polaris GPU architecture, the Radeon™ Pro WX (workstation experience) graphics cards employ the latest advances in AMD’s fourth generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture are optimized for an extensive list of ISV applications. And they are fully compatible with open source software through GPUOpen. Those who want to break boundaries don’t like being tied to proprietary software.”
See Introducing a New Line of Graphics Cards for “The Art of the Impossible”Remember the bad old days when GNU/Linux systems struggled without proper drivers for video-cards? Well, they’re gone with AMD. They’ve produced a very powerful line of powerful graphics cards designed for demanding professionals including those using GNU/Linux. I like it. I’ll never buy such a gizmo belching hot air like my old Beast never did, but millions may well seek its capabilities. AMD seeks ~$1K for the device while I’m trying to build a complete IT-system for such a price… We live in different worlds but at least we share respect for FLOSS.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
