AMD FirePro W4100: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W4100

Summary

AMD started FirePro W4100 sales 13 August 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 72 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 171 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.98 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
