AMD FirePro S9170: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro S9170

Summary

AMD started FirePro S9170 sales 8 July 2015. This is GCN 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 32 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 320.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 275 Watt.

We have no data on FirePro S9170 benchmark results.
