It's kind of sad to compare their new card with a GPU from over 3 years ago. The Nvidia card is basically a down-clocked GTX 1060.
So which card would you like more as a workstation powering multiple 4k monitors? The p2200 or the Radeon Pro XT 5100 ?

Well, it depends on what software you want to run on it.

If you're just looking for 2D acceleration, then it probably doesn't much matter. Otherwise, try to find some benchmarks relevant to your needs.

On paper, the Radeon Pro W5500 is definitely the better card, but that's not worth a lot if it's not well-supported by the software you need to run on it.

And, to be honest, I have somewhat more confidence in Nvidia's video encoding & decoding support.
