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. 2 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 single-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

7.86%

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

Passmark

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.
