AMD FirePro M5100: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro M5100

Summary

AMD started FirePro M5100 sales 1 October 2013. This is GCN architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 72 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 8.27 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
