AMD FirePro M2000: specs and benchmarks
AMD started FirePro M2000 sales 1 July 2012. This is Terascale 2 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 33 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.51 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of FirePro M2000's architecture, market type and release date.
FirePro M2000's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of FirePro M2000's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on FirePro M2000's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed on FirePro M2000: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on FirePro M2000. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by FirePro M2000, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of FirePro M2000. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
3DMark 11 Performance GPU
3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.
3DMark Vantage Performance
3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Cryptocurrency mining performance of FirePro M2000. Usually measured in megahashes per second.
Let's see how good FirePro M2000 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 63% minimum and 55% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
Here are the average frames per second in a large set of popular games across different resolutions:
