AMD FirePro W4170M: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W4170M

Summary

AMD started FirePro W4170M sales 28 April 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture notebook 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 64 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface.

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