AMD FirePro D500: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro D500

Summary

AMD started FirePro D500 sales 18 January 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture 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 11.87 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000.
