To counter NVIDIA’s recently revealed next-gen Turing GPU, AMD is in a mood to compete. Nvidia had previously shown up with three new cards: GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti.
On the other hand, AMD has just announced their new dual-GPU Radeon Pro V340 accelerator to challenge Nvidia.

Speaking of the all-new Radeon Pro V340, it comes with the following set of features:
- A dual-GPU accelerator based on the Vega architecture
- 56 Compute Units per GPU
- 32GB of HBM2 memory with Error Correcting Code (ECC)
The market for this card is not just the gaming sector but the workstations and servers with high-end needs. Here’s what Radeon Pro’s GM Ogi Brkic has to say about the card:
As the flagship of our new Radeon Pro V-series product line, the Radeon Pro V340 graphics card employs advanced security features and helps to cost-effectively deliver and accelerate modern visualization workloads from the datacenter.
The dual-GPU card is being passively cooled with extraordinary results. This was told by Sheldon D’Paiva, director of Product Marketing at VMware:
