AMD FirePro V5900: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro V5900


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 4 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 128.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-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 8.99 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
