As the performance of applications and processing technology advances, the industry continues to strive for the most photo-realistic designs possible. Designers who work on these projects usually alternate between creating their designs with one application, followed by a full render/ray trace cycle with another application, which can be time consuming and inefficient. With the Radeon Pro Duo graphics card, designers can now simultaneously use two software packages, with one GPU dedicated to the functions of each application concurrently. Live content creation using the first GPU, with real-time rendering and/or ray tracing on the second GPU is now possible. The user can benefit from shortened design cycles or is now able to do more design iterations within the allotted design window for an overall better outcome.
