AMD FirePro V5900: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 2.0 x16
- Core clock speed 600 MHz
- Max video memory 2 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 2000 MHz
- Maximum resolution
AMD started FirePro V5900 sales 24 May 2011. This is a 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
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Synthetic benchmark performance of FirePro V5900. Overall 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.
