ATI FirePro M7740: specs and benchmarks

ATI FirePro M7740

Summary

ATI started FirePro M7740 sales 4 August 2009. This is Terascale 1 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1000 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 54.14 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 60 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.33 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

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3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution.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.
