Summary

AMD started FirePro R5000 sales 25 February 2013 at a recommended price of $1,099. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 102.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 279 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 350 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

9.01%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
