ATI FirePro V8700: specs and benchmarks

ATI FirePro V8700


ATI started FirePro V8700 sales 11 September 2008 at a recommended price of 1,499 USD. This is TeraScale architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 108.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 254 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 151 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 19.01 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
