AMD FirePro S9050
AMD started FirePro S9050 sales 7 August 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 12 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 264.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 254 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of FirePro S9050. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good FirePro S9050 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Overall FirePro S9050 performance compared to nearest competitors among server video cards.
The nearest FirePro S9050's NVIDIA equivalent is Quadro K5000, which is faster by 1% and higher by 2 positions in our rating.
