Summary

AMD started FirePro V5900 sales 24 May 2011. This is TeraScale 3 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 230 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

4.81%

percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
