AMD FirePro M5100: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro M5100

Summary

AMD started FirePro M5100 sales 16 October 2013. This is GCN 1.0 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 7.61 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
