AMD FirePro D500 technical specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro D500


AMD started FirePro D500 sales 18 January 2014. This is a desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 3 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.08 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 243.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 279 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 274 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 19.09 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
