AMD FirePro M6000: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro M6000


AMD started FirePro M6000 sales 1 July 2012. This is GCN 1.0 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2048 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4 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-B (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 43 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.44 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
