AMD FirePro 2270: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro 2270

Summary

AMD started FirePro 2270 sales 31 January 2011. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 9.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 170 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 15 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.58 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
