AMD FirePro V7900: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro V7900

Summary

AMD started FirePro V7900 sales 24 May 2011. This is TeraScale 3 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2048 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 160 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 279 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 151 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 14.37 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
