ATI FireGL V8650: specs and benchmarks

ATI FireGL V8650

Summary

ATI started FireGL V8650 sales 14 May 2007 at a recommended price of $2,799. This is TeraScale architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR4 memory clocked at 1.74 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 111.1 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 254 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 12.28 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
