Summary

AMD started FirePro V3900 sales 7 February 2012. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 199 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

2.22%

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